The new division unites all of ESG’s existing energy testing services, as well as incorporating its extensive environmental, chemistry, nuclear, lubricant and fluid analysis elements. By combining these services, ESG’s clients will be able to take advantage of its range of solutions through one point of contact.
With testament to this, ESG recently secured a new three year contract to carry out the bulk of laboratory analysis work for leading UK recycling and renewable energy company Viridor. As part of the three year deal, ESG’s Energy & Waste Services division will complete stack emissions and gas chromatography work, analysis of Incinerator Bottom Ash, AD pre-acceptance testing, calorific value analysis of RDF and engine oil testing.
Declan Burns, the division’s managing director, ESG, commented: “The creation of a specialist Energy & Waste Services division is in response to current market trends and follows the Department of Energy & Climate Change’s projection that energy production from renewables will double within the next ten years.
“By combining our services for energy and waste into one offering, we will be able to provide our clients with a holistic and unparalleled level of service. This is a fantastic opportunity for the company to further grow its technical expertise and capabilities within an expanding sector which is crucial to the UK’s economic development.”
Sam Woollacott, Category Manager, Viridor, said: “As the country’s population and demand for resources continues to increase, it is vital that there is a continued focus on recycling and the quality of the recyclate produced along with diverting as much waste as possible away from landfill sites.
“The tailored offering that ESG is able to provide with its Energy & Waste Services division meets all of our laboratory requirements for a range of processes, giving us the support we need to ensure that we can monitor our recycling and energy operations to full compliance.”
The division’s launch is part of the company’s long-term strategy to focus on three core sectors: Infrastructure; Built Environment; and Energy & Waste.
