The location of leading waste-to-product company Renewi Vliko in Zoeterwoude will be equipped with solar panels this year. This generates energy consumption without CO2 emissions.
At the end of last year, Renewi Vliko started using the new location in Zoeterwoude. At that time, a conscious decision was made to construct the roofs of the two new recycling halls with translucent roof panels and there were plans to also provide solar panels for the roofs. This ambition will be fulfilled this year in collaboration with SolarAccess.
Renewi and SolarAccess recently signed the agreement to install 1,245 solar panels in total at the two recycling halls that have an expected annual yield of 305,580 kWh. This generates energy consumption without CO2 emissions. It is planned that the solar panels will be placed on the roofs of the two large halls in mid-November.
General Area Manager Marc van Buijtene says: “At Renewi we give new life to used materials every day through recycling. In doing so, we are specifically concerned with sustainability and we are also continuing to implement this in our own business operations. The recycling halls at this location are already equipped with LED lighting and a roof surface that consists of 45% light-transmitting plates. This way, we benefit from sunlight and reduce energy consumption. We will soon be able to work CO2-neutral at this location and that is a great milestone”.
