New Earth Solutions, the waste treatment and recycling specialist, appointed Peter Gillatt, formerly the Chief Operating Officer at SITA UK, to the role of Managing Director in the final quarter of 2006.
Gillatt's appointment will enable the previous Managing Director, Bill Riddle, to assume the role of Chairman with a specific focus on land acquisition and new technology development.
Speaking from New Earth Solution's Dorset head quarters, says Peter Gillatt: “New Earth technology has already made a significant impression on the composting and waste management industry. Their new technology and innovative facilities represent a significant directional turn in the future of waste recovery and recycling.
I am delighted to be joining such a highly committed, enthusiastic and pioneering team, and for the opportunity to contribute to the continued roll out of facilities nationwide. We are unanimously resolute that quality client service is maintained as the business moves forward into the next phase”.
Says Bill Riddle,”Our team ethic and dedication to providing an optimum service for all our clients is second to none. Peter has an exceptional track record, genuine ethics, tremendous knowledge, and high calibre expertise. We are thrilled to have him on board”.
Gillatt's arrival will take the number of staff members at New Earth to a total of eighteen. The firm, which is committed to helping local authorities reduce the amount of biodegradable waste that is sent to landfill, has proven that their biological treatment process can reduce the biodegradable content of residual waste by up to 80%.
New Earth technology is bespoke for the UK waste sector and is underpinned by proven technology developed in Germany and Austria. Each New Earth facility is comprised of a fully enclosed biological treatment system, resulting in no outward emissions of odours or bio-aerosols due to a sophisticated automated air handling and treatment system.
A New Earth facility was the first of its' kind to test diversion rates using the methodology recently published by the Environment Agency, which administers waste regulation on behalf of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).
