Biogenie and Biffa were honoured as International Green World Ambassadors at a special presentation ceremony on Monday November 16th 2015 at the Houses of Parliament, London.
This recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of the UK soil treatment facilities, a joint venture between Biogenie and Biffa, which have recently won an International Green Apple Environment Award.
As a result of that success, the winning paper will be published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice that is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation.
The award judges commented:
“This cutting edge technology is able to remediate contaminated soil into a fully useable substrate for landworks. As it avoids landfill tax, it offers a saving both to the supplier and to the environment – and has already diverted more than 600,000 tons from landfill across the UK.”
The winning paper now goes forward for further judging and the possibility of representing the UK in the Brussels-led European Business Awards for the Environment.
The Green Apple Awards are one of the few environmental schemes in Britain that have official status to act as an automatic feeder scheme into the European campaign.
