Tamar does the double
Tamar Energy, an organic waste management company, has earnt a key industry certification across all of its UK anaerobic digestion (AD) network, as well as achieving a range of business quality standards.
All five of the UK based company’s AD plants now meet PAS 110, a key industry standard backed by WRAP and the British Standards Institute, demonstrating the highest quality and consistency of the nutrient-rich digestate through AD at each plant.
A lengthy application process is needed to achieve the recognition, with numerous samples having to be submitted for testing over a period of time.
Tamar’s plants in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire and Halstead, Essex have all recently been awarded PAS 110, meaning the company is now producing more than 211,000 tonnes of premium grade biofertiliser and soil conditioner at every one of its AD, open windrow and in-vessel composting sites. All Tamar biofertiliser and compost produced now meets the PAS 110 or PAS 100 quality standards.
Dean Hislop, Tamar chief executive, said: “Achieving PAS 110 certification across all our AD plants is another sign of our commitment to continually improving the quality of our offering to customers. We work hard to operate to the very highest standards in the organic waste management industry and we think this and the ISO standards we have upheld send that important message to our customers.”
Tamar has also achieved ISO standards awarded by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA). The company has achieved accreditation for the ISO 9001 international quality management and ISO 140001 environmental management standards, together with the OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety standard, across all of its sites.
