Asbestos Disposal Request for Information (RFI).
The States of Jersey (SoJ) are currently researching the possibilities of on Island processing and disposal of asbestos waste.
SoJ are currently in the early stages of developing an on Island asbestos strategy and before deciding on how best to embark on a procurement exercise are conducting market research into available technologies.
Any contractor or technology supplier who believes they are able to fulfil the Island's needs as briefly outlined in this RFI are encouraged to respond to this request for information detailing the following;
- A basic description of the disposal strategy.
- A basic process description and design concept.
- Materials reception and storage strategy.
- Materials handling strategy.
- Estimated manpower and operational requirements.
- Specialised skill requirements.
- Overall plant energy requirements.
- Land area requirements.
- Environmental compliance standards.
- Indicative operational costs and indicative capital costs for budgetary purposes. This is not a request for quotation or tender.
There is approximately 1 400 tonnes of asbestos contaminated materials stored on the island. The Island produces 550 to 700 tonnes of asbestos waste per year and of this approximately 20 % is licenced. The envisaged process should be able to cope with licenced and unlicensed asbestos waste.
There is a requirement on Jersey to neutralise and dispose of historic stockpiles of asbestos waste materials and future asbestos waste arising's from the Island. The neutralization and disposal method must be to the highest environmental standards and the residues from the facility must be deemed to be safe for eternity.
The facility is to be regulated to the highest standards by The States Of Jersey Department of Planning and Environment Waste Regulators and the proof of emissions and processes security must be open to scrutiny by members of the public and NGO's. A suitable disposal route for any arising's from the disposal process must be considered in the overall scheme.
The neutralisation process must be capable of dealing with a wide range of asbestos materials and materials that have asbestos attached to them.
Any proposed plant or process must have a low visual impact and must not produce odours, noise or any other effect that may impact on residential or recreational areas.
The proposed method of operation is to build and commission a plant that is oversized for the Island need. This plant will then process the historic stockpiles on a continuous basis until they are safe. The plant will then operate in a batch mode to process asbestos materials collected over short periods of time. It may be possible to implement a solution that has a temporary processing plant and a permanent processing plant with the temporary plant being disassembled and removed when the stockpiles have been diminished.
The requisite Planning permissions and Environmental permissions have not yet been applied for and the preferred contractor or technology supplier will use existing data and reference plants to assist with the submission to planning and Environment for approvals.
Submission of Information
Responses to this RFI are to be emailed to Richard Fauvel Acting Director, Waste Strategy, Transport and Technical Services Department at no later than 17.3.2014.
