ANDOVERADVERTIZER Biffa installs electric vehicle charging at sites By Sophie Day @ChronicleSophie Multimedia reporter Biffa Biffa 1 comment THE waste collection company Biffa has entered into a partnership to install electric vehicle charging facilities across their UK sites, including Winchester. The business has teamed up with ENGIE in support of its ‘Resourceful, Responsible’ sustainability strategy launched earlier this year. ENGIE will install an initial 14 Alfen EV chargers (6 single & 8 dual socket) which will be a combination of 22kW twin socket load balanced units as well as some single and dual socket 7kW units. The chargers will all be operated and managed by ENGIE’s GeniePoint Platform, providing Biffa staff, drivers and visitors to site, reliable and easy to use charging facilities to support the transition to electric vehicles. Mark Robson, Biffa head of procurement, said: “In order to meet the current and future demands for vehicle charging it was essential that Biffa found a reliable, experienced and cost effective partner to deliver an effective solution. In Engie we have found just that partner and we are very much looking forward to working with them to expand our coverage of charging points to support both front line vehicles and other company vehicles.” Alex Bamberg, managing director of ENGIE EV Solutions, said: “Biffa is clearly demonstrating its commitment to cleaner air and reduced carbon output across all aspects of its business. ENGIE are ideally placed to support these efforts by providing the latest in EV charging technology in a scalable solution to support future growth as it transitions to zero carbon transport in the coming months and years.”

Electric Dreams: Council makes huge commitment to eco-friendly bin lorries share with twitter share with LinkedIn share with facebook 0 06/02/2020 | 05:24pm BST Manchester City Council is to replace almost half of its refuse collection vehicles with emission-free electric alternatives. Following agreement on funding with the Council, Biffa - which holds the contract for waste collection and street cleaning in the city - has placed an order for 27 new electric refuse collection vehicles (e-RCVs) to replace diesel wagons which have reached the end of their natural lifespans. The move is a big step towards delivering the Council's zero carbon action plan which aims to halve its direct carbon emissions by 2025 as part of a wider drive to make Manchester zero carbon by 2038 at the latest in response to the climate change emergency. The switch to electric eRCVs will save around 900 tonnes of carbon emissions a year, cutting around 4% of the Council's current direct annual emissions. The commitment will cost the Council £9.787m, marginally more than it would have cost for a like-for-like replacement with diesel vehicles but as well as the clear environmental benefits the cost of the new vehicles over their 10 year expected lifespan, the cost difference will be largely offset by energy savings and the availability of grants. Councillor Rabnawaz Akbar, Executive Member for Neighbourhoods, said: "As a council we've said all along that we will have to do things very differently to realise our ambition to dramatically cut carbon emissions. "We're proud, together with Biffa, that our waste collection service is in the forefront of the forward-thinking response to the climate change challenge and we hope it will inspire others to follow suit. "The only difference to the new service that residents should notice is that the new vehicles are quieter and cleaner." Councillor Angeliki Stogia, Executive Member for Environment, said: "This major investment in new electric bin lorries is a great example of the council's commitment to playing its full part in tackling climate change and will also contribute to better air quality. "We've seen during the coronavirus lockdown how less pollution and better air quality benefits everyone. "Climate change is an urgent challenge which we are getting on with addressing." Roger Edwards, Managing Director, Municipal Division at Biffa, said: "This latest development in our longstanding partnership with Manchester City Council demonstrates Biffa's commitment to being at the forefront of the electric refuse collection vehicles innovation. "Embracing this technology forms a key part of our group wide sustainability strategy and target to reduce carbon emissions by 50% by 2030. We look forward to this project with Manchester and are confident it will be the first of many of its kind across the country as the UK sees the multiple benefits that electric refuse vehicles can bring." The Council and Biffa were supported and advised on the purchase by the Energy Saving Trust. The overall cost of the vehicles is being reduced through government Plug-in grants designed to encourage a switch to electric vehicles. The new vehicles will arrive and start operating in the autumn. The order being placed with Blackburn-based manufacturer Electra, a leading company producing heavy electric trucks in collaboration with the largest truck manufacturers in the world. Sid Sadique, Chair of Electra Commercial Vehicles, said: "This has been an eighteen month project in partnership with Manchester City Council and Biffa, with an Electra refuse collection vehicle being on trial in the city for eighteen months. The trial proved that a fully electric vehicle does the same job as its diesel equivalent with no compromise on payload or operation with the benefit of zero tailpipe emissions."

resource.co Financial results show ‘successful217; year for Biffa By Rob Cole | 5 June 2020 | Add a Comment PrintPrint EmailE-mail ShareShare Waste management company Biffa’s financial results for 2019/20 have revealed an increase in its underlying operating profits of 10.8 per cent, putting it in a “strong position” to withstand the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. Released today (5 June), the Biffa Group revealed its underlying operating profits had increased by £8.8 million to £90.5 million, while its underlying profits before tax increased by 12.1 per cent to £71.7 million. Financial results show ‘successful217; year for BiffaThe company’s increase in profits has been driven by a strong performance in its recycling and waste collections operations. Strong performance has also been recorded in its Industrial and Commercial (I&C) and Specialist Services operations and recycling activities, while its operations in Inerts, Organics, Municipal and Landfill Gas remain solid. The Group’s net revenue has increased by seven per cent to £1,102.8 million, up from £1,030.8 million in 2018/19. This represents a greater increase in revenue to 2018/19, which saw a growth of 4.4 per cent. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused great disruption to recycling and waste services due to the government implementing lockdown and social distancing measures. Despite strong performance over the financial year, Biffa’s I&C and landfill businesses have seen revenues fall by 50 per cent, though they have begun to recover to 40 per cent down. Biffa has taken swift action to protect the health of employees and communities, ensure business operations are able to continue with minimal disruption and protect the financial strength of the Group. As a result of Biffa’s cash conservation package of measures, no financial dividend will be paid to shareholders for this financial year. Commenting on the financial results, Michael Topham, Chief Executive of Biffa, said: “Events since March have, for obvious reasons, completely overshadowed what was otherwise a very successful year for Biffa. We delivered a strong set of financial results, continued to execute our exciting growth strategy, and committed to an ambitious 10-year Sustainability Strategy, ‘Resourceful, Responsible’ which will see the Group unlock £1.25 billion of investment in green economy infrastructure by 2030. “We continued to make good progress in our I&C business, through a combination of organic growth, a number of acquisitions and a standout performance in our Specialist Services business. The Municipal business stabilised with some excellent new business wins and contract extensions. In Resources and Energy, a strong performance in our Biffa Polymers business offset some weakness in the recycling facilities that arose from ongoing softness in commodity prices. “Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges, I am very proud of the way Biffa has responded with a series of swift and decisive measures focused on protecting our people, continuing to serve our customers and maintaining our financial strength. Proactive steps to conserve cash have included temporarily suspending M&A activity and dividends; reducing capex, operating costs, pay and bonuses; utilising government assistance where appropriate and securing the necessary support from our lenders and suppliers. “These actions have placed us in a strong position to withstand the immediate impact of the crisis as we continue to provide critical and sustainable infrastructure and services. “I would like to offer my thanks and appreciation to all of Biffa’s stakeholders, in particular our employees, for their exceptional response to the Covid-19 crisis. Although the crisis will continue to be tough for everyone and the short-term outlook remains uncertain, we are confident that the measures we have taken ensure we are able to be clearly focused on making sure Biffa emerges a stronger and better business.”

BUSINESSGREEN.COM Infrastructure Engie to install EV charging at Biffa sites nationwide Biffa drivers will be able to use any charger on the nationwide GeniePoint network. Cecilia Keating @cecilia_keating 26 June 2020 Partnership will give Biffa waste truck and company cars drivers access to EV chargers at company facilities as well as those across Engie's nationwide EV charging network. Zero-emissions waste truck and company car drivers will soon be able to refuel at Engie GeniePoint electric vehicle (EV) chargers installed at Biffa's waste management sites nationwide. Engie EV Solutions revealed yesterday it has bagged a deal to roll out EV charging infrastrcture at all of the waste giant's UK facilities. The infrastructure boost will benefit Biffa's existing fleet of more than 600 electric Nissan NV200 vans, as well as a growing number of company car drivers and other site visitors who are swapping from internal combustion vehicles to EVs, Engie said. The partnership also gives Biffa employees and drivers access to Engie's nationwide network of EV chargers, dubbed the GeniePoint Network. "In order to meet the current future demands for vehicle charging it was essential that Biffa found a reliable, experienced and cost effective partner to deliver an effective solution," said Mark Robson, head of procurement at Biffa. "In Engie we have found just that partner and we are very much looking forward to working with them to expand our coverage of charging points to support both front line vehicles and other company vehicles." Fourteen Alfen EV chargers with a combination of 22kW twin socket load balanced units as well as some single and dual socket 7kW will be installed initially, according to Engie. All of the chargers will be run on the energy company's GeniePoint Platform. Alex Bamberg, the managing director of Engie EV Solutions, toasted the deal, noting that the company was "ideally placed" to support Biffa's decarbonisation efforts by "providing the latest in EV charging technology in a scalable solution to support future growth as it transitions to zero carbon transport in the coming months and years". The two firms have worked together since 2018, when Engie was hired to deliver a ‘fully integrated facilities management service' to optimise the waste giant's sites and operations. The announcement comes just weeks after Engie announced that it had bagged a deal to install 13 new rapid chargers in the West Midlands.

Decent results, but overtaken by events. I suspect one of the effects is that smaller players will go to the wall or become available on attractive terms and bigger companies and local authorities will want bigger partners. But this is a wait and see

Hello Alphorn , Yes ! I could see the Trade Unions that represent refuse collectors instructing their members to withdraw labour ! " The Official Government advice on Tissue paper used when you blow your nose ( which could contain the VIRUS) is to BIN it ! With the new sickness rules coming into play, I can see lots of refuge collectors going off sick depending how bad the situation gets. Thats private and public sector.
