Unique contract between Veolia and Siemens
The contract, that is designed to provide circular solutions for all its waste streams, is split over four contracted lots with Veolia supplying recycling and treatment services for up to 90 Siemens manufacturing sites and office locations across the UK.
This unique contract will provide specialist solutions including providing recycling and waste collections to on and offshore wind power sites predominantly in Scotland. The recycling of exotic metals from Siemens manufacturing and maintenance plants that design, build and service industrial turbo machinery is at the heart of adding value to our service offering.
Estelle Brachlianoff, Veolia Senior Executive Vice President, UK and Ireland said “Clearly we share a common interest with Siemens in environmental thought leadership, the circular economy and the future of urban sustainability.
“This far-sighted contract utilises our fully integrated environmental services offering and will enable Siemens to take a holistic approach to its varied waste streams and treat them in a sustainable way, particularly by reusing more of the materials they produce.”
