Wastecycle - Wood Waste Boiler Technology Review and Due Diligence

Brief - WRM were appointed by Wastecycle Ltd to support the development of a Grade C wood waste boiler and SRF dryer at their Colwick site. Wastecycle had elicited several supplier quotes that varied considerably in terms of the proposed solution, performance claims, and depth of quote information. WRM’s scope involved a technical review of the supplier quotes  to assess their robustness, along with a comparison of offers that factored in the variety of quotes received.

Solution - WRM applied our understanding of waste combustion systems, drying approaches, and the regulatory context to undertake a review process that first involved consideration of quote information received from suppliers.

Interviews were then held with supplier representatives which enabled our team to field questions, scrutinise proposals and check the robustness of assumptions.  A further phase of information review was conducted prior to a report being produced that advised Wastecycle on which quotes could be progressed in commercial discussions.

The review undertaken by WRM examined a number of factors including:            


Next steps - The work delivered by WRM identified four suppliers who were potentially suitable development partners for the project, and provided the basis for a competitive tender to be released by Wastecycle.

Customer Testimonial - "The SRF drying/waste wood development is an important initative for Wastecycle and therefore it was important that we made the right decisions based on factual information following a robust due diligence of the technology providers. We are satisfied that WRM provided us with the confidence to make the right choices." - Kevan Wilcockson, Comliance and Development Director, Wastecycle Ltd.
