ARGO I/S is a waste and energy company that processes waste for citizens and businesses in nine Zealand municipalities – Greve, Holbæk, Kalundborg, Køge, Lejre, Odsherred, Roskilde, Solrød, and Stevns.
In 2021, ARGO handled over 700 000 tonnes of waste at the company’s recycling sites, recycling facilities, cogeneration plant, and environmental centre. Of this, the ARGO waste-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Roskilde used almost 343 000 tonnes of residual waste for energy.
According to Geminor, the recently signed agreement is a prolonging of existing cooperation between the two companies that has lasted for several years.
Under the terms of the new contract, Geminor will supply 100 000 tonnes of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) from January 1, 2023, until 2027.
We are delighted with the renewed trust ARGO has shown us, and are looking forward to securing the deliveries of RDF in the coming winter seasons, said Kasper Thomsen, Country Manager for Geminor Denmark.
Requires close cooperation
The residual waste Geminor will supply to ARGO will comprise mainly of mixed Italian household waste that otherwise would go to landfill.
The material is ground, baled, and transported by ship to Denmark from southern Italy.
Kasper Thomsen is satisfied with how the contract has been secured through more comprehensive cooperation within the value chain.
Coordinating and securing the supply of secondary fuels in Europe is an operation that requires the involvement of more players than before. In Italy, we collaborate with several waste producers, and we have landed more robust logistics and transport contracts in order to secure deliveries in a relatively turbulent transport market, said Kasper Thomsen.
The market for secondary fuels is becoming increasingly complex in terms of logistics. This requires, among other things, more liquidity among the industry players, as well as better planning and more detailed backup solutions, ended Kasper Thomsen.
