to help drive the rapid expansion of waste treatment facilities nationwide.
New Earth Solutions, the waste treatment and resource recovery firm with a fast growing portfolio of local authority contracts has appointed Colin Brown to the new position of Operations Director.
Brown has broad experience across the waste and recycling sector where he has worked with both public and private sector clients. Assuming responsibility for overseeing operations at the firm's existing Canford facility in Dorset, he will also be significantly involved in managing operations at facilities in various stages of development to fulfil contracts with Kent County Council, Bristol City Council and Leicestershire County Council.
Peter Gillatt, Managing Director of New Earth Solutions comments “I am delighted to be welcoming Colin to the team. He has extremely solid credentials, a wealth of experience, heaps of enthusiasm, and a visible commitment to the development of sustainable waste management technologies.
New Earth Solutions is currently engaged in the operation and construction of a number of facilities across the UK and Colin will help to ensure that each site is functioning to the very highest standard of operational efficiency and safety with guaranteed quality outputs”.
Originally qualified as a Chartered Engineer, prior to joining New Earth Solutions as Operations Director, Brown was Divisional Director of Jacobs' Waste Management Consultancy where he was involved in local authority projects and waste procurement under Public Finance Initiatives (PFI). Previous to this he was Managing Director of the Hazardous Waste Division, at independent waste management company, Shanks.
“I've been following the progress of New Earth Solutions with interest over the past couple of years and have been impressed by their rapid progress with regard to the application and commercialisation of innovative waste processing and recycling technology in the UK.
New Earth Solutions processes are tried, tested, and proven to be a successful solution for local authorities for the diversion of residual waste from landfill. This is a very challenging and exciting role”.
Within the last two years, New Earth Solutions has been contracted to develop advanced treatment facilities by five local authorities including Bournemouth Borough Council, Kent County Council, Bristol City Council, and Leicestershire County Council.
In July 2008, New Earth Solutions launched the Recycling Facilities Investment Sub-Fund, which is designed to attract experienced retail investors to invest in the rapid expansion and roll-out of the firm's bespoke facilities across the UK.
