Energy recovery and plastics recycling specialist, Viridor, has appointed AMCS, a global technology leader for the environmental, waste, recycling, and resource industries, as its technology partner to drive forward the company’s digitalisation program and maximise operating efficiency.
AMCS and Viridor have successfully implemented AMCS Platform at Viridor’s two Somerset facilities. This is the start of a journey that will eventually see the solution rolled out to 22 additional sites including Energy from Waste and polymer reprocessing facilities.
Commenting on the successful first phase implementation Viridor’s CIO, Dominic Howson, said: “This is the first step of our transformation journey using the AMCS Platform and will play a key role in the increased efficiency of our tech-driven business. We are looking forward to developing a stronger partnership with AMCS as we reach our milestones for the additional sites.”
AMCS Platform is replacing a legacy weighbridge system with a modern cloud-based solution that also offers significant additional functionality in terms of logistics scheduling, invoicing, driver assisted terminals, automatic weighbridges, and on-demand forecasting. The solution will improve the efficiency of all Viridor’s operational assets and streamline its invoicing process and production. AMCS Platform will be fully integrated into Viridor’s existing Microsoft Dynamics 365 system using AMCS’s REST APIs. As the project progresses, the platform will be extended for use in inventory management, material grading, demand planning and supplier management.
Howson added: “It has been refreshing to work with a business that recognises the need for transparency and has taken the time to understand our business. We have also valued the opportunity to draw on AMCS’s significant experience in the recycling and waste sector both in the UK and internationally. Digitalisation is key to Viridor realising its ambition of a ‘building a world where nothing goes to waste’ and we look forward to continuing this journey with AMCS.”
AMCS’s COO, Freddie Kavanagh, commented: “AMCS shares Viridor’s desire to play a leading role in transforming the waste sector so it can drive the creation of a net zero and circular economy. This model will enable the maximum environmental and commercial value to be realised from the valuable resources managed by Viridor. We look forward to the continuation of our partnership and supporting Viridor in meeting its ESG commitments.”
