ABERDEEN logistics management company, ASCO, has launched its industrial waste disposal service with a contract award from Serica Energy.

ASCO’s Zero Waste to Landfill initiative has been created to support clients in the reduction of waste production by implementing locally-assisted sustainable solutions for the onshore management of offshore waste.

Designed in response to Scottish regulatory requirements which will ban the disposal of general waste to landfill by 2025, the initiative aims to divert industrial waste, currently bound for landfill sites, to sustainable facilities in North-east Scotland where ‘waste-to-energy’ technology is used to produce electricity and hot water.

Simon Turner, ASCO waste and decommissioning sales manager, said: “ASCO has risen to answer a challenge which will impact upon operators across the North Sea and aims to divert up to 6,000 tonnes of waste from landfill per annum.

“We are delighted that Serica has led the way in becoming the first company to join us in this initiative. However, let’s not be complacent; this is only a small step, with the ultimate goal of us all doing our bit to contribute to a zero-waste society.”

Oliver Lever, Serica Energy environmental advisor added: “Serica is delighted to be the first in the industry to work with ASCO, trialling the Zero Waste to Landfill initiative.

“Serica hopes, after the completion of a successful trial, to fully commit to Zero Waste to Landfill 5 years ahead of the Scottish Government’s regulatory requirement.”
