Averda wins three-year waste disposal contract with Arcelor Mittal

Dubai-based waste management company Averda has won a three-year contract with steel producer ArcelorMittal South Africa for the collection, transportation, and disposal of complex waste streams, including sludge, coal tar, oil and grease, effluents, borax and phosphates in a facility that stretches over 97km2 in the Vaal Triangle’s Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark areas, just south of Johannesburg, and adjacent to Averda’s hazardous treatment and landfill facility, Vlakfontein.

As part of the contract, Averda will utilise specialised equipment to ensure material recovery is maximised and non-recoverable material will be efficiently and safely managed to world-leading environmental standards. 

Commenting on the contract win, managing director of Averda in South Africa, Johan van den Berg, said: “This is an excellent win for Averda, demonstrating our ability to secure technical waste service contracts with prestigious client such as ArcelorMittal South Africa and expand our market share across South Africa.”

According to the company, the project began a week earlier than planned, due to criticality, which required additional focus from the Averda South Africa team to prepare the equipment and manpower to ensure operational readiness from Day One.
