Stamp of quality awards for Broad Group

Broad Group, the environmental service providers hoping to create a new energy recovery facility at Buttington, has been awarded three ISO certificates from the BSI.

Adoption of International Standards means that the firm adheres to the world's most stringent quality standards. Conformity of products and services to these rigorous standards provides assurance of safety and reliability for its customers.

The three certificates have been granted for the implementation and calibre of Broad’s management systems in the areas of quality, environmental and occupational health & safety following an extensive audit of the company's management systems.

Each certificate confirms Broad operates its management systems in compliance with BSI requirements for waste services including recycling, reusing and creation of sustainable fuels derived from waste, as well as consultation of renewable waste projects and affiliated services.

Broad Energy is planning to create a new energy recovery facility which could help Powys generate low-carbon energy capable of powering 20,000 homes. 

Plans were unveiled last year for the energy recovery facility (ERF) which could be built at Buttington Quarry, Welshpool, and would be designed, built and operated under an Environmental Permit by Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI), a global leader in delivering energy projects.

It will see up to 150,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste transformed into low-cost, low-carbon electricity.

The proposal followed a top-level report which revealed that more than three quarters of Powys' energy requirements were met by renewable energy last year.

“We’re delighted to have official confirmation that Broad Group, which encompasses Broad Energy, Broad Environmental and Broad Fuels, takes quality very seriously in all aspects of its operations.” said company Director Alistair Hilditch-Brown.

The ISO application process takes considerable time and preparation, culminating in a rigorous review by an independent body. 

“It was a thorough process to go through but essential in being able to show that our standards and processes are up to date,” Alistair said. “Achieving this level of accreditation is essential for Broad as it is a standard which is demanded and expected within the industry.”

As part of its environmental services, Broad has successfully completed the removal and reprocessing of over 520,000 tonnes of abandoned waste since 2016 and is on target to manage the clearance of over one million tonnes of abandoned waste from sites throughout the UK by 2020.
