‘First country-to-country waste transportation without using trucks is a success’

Geminor suggests it has a current capacity of transporting up to 50,000 tonnes of refuse-derived fuel by rail per year

Resource management company Geminor has completed the first international transport of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) by train, without the support of trucks.

A two-carriage train loaded with 110 tonnes of RDF arrived at Geminor’s HUB in Landskrona in Sweden, sent from another of the company's facilities in Braunsbedra, Germany.

The firm claims the move is the first-ever waste transport on rails unsupported by trucks from one European country to another, with a railway track directly linking both sites - the transport was mainly conducted by electric locomotives, making the journey highly sustainable.
