EQTEC to collaborate with Toyota on Deeside refuse derived fuel project

Toyota and EQTEC will collaborate on possibly establishing a supply of power and gas to the Toyota engine manufacturing site through the construction and commissioning of the Deeside RDF Project


EQTEC PLC (LON:EQT), the gasification technology company, has been called in to look at a waste-to-energy solution for Toyota's engine manufacturing plant in Deeside.

The EQTEC subsidiary that is overseeing the Deeside Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) project will collaborate with Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) over a period of three years. The project is set to be located right next door to Toyota’s Deeside plant in Flintshire, Wales.

The Deeside RDF Project seeks to provide the local community, Toyota and other potential users with a decentralised energy source. It is intended that EQTEC will act as the land developer and technology provider for the plant.

The parties have agreed to work together on scoping and evaluating the potential supply of bio-methane gas and green electricity and conversion of manufacturing waste through the sharing of cost data, energy usage and other information.

If adopted, EQTEC's waste-to-energy solution could reduce the carbon footprint of the Toyota Deeside site on an annual basis.

"Toyota has always been a leader in innovation and we are delighted to support and work with them on a localised sustainable waste-to-energy solution. This partnership further demonstrates the capabilities and applications of EQTEC's advanced gasification solutions and enhances our already strong pipeline of projects in development," said David Palumbo, the chief executive of EQTEC.
