Total Waste Management Contract with Cummins Romania

 

Directa Plus (AIM: DCTA), a leading producer and supplier of graphene nanoplatelets based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, announces that the Company's subsidiary Setcar S.A. ("Setcar") has signed a contract to supply total waste management services to Cummins Generator Technologies Romania S.A. ("Cummins Romania"), part of the Fortune 500 Cummins, Inc.

 

This is the third major contract win for Setcar since the completion of the acquisition by Directa Plus of 51 per cent of the company in November 2019. The value of the contract to Setcar is estimated to be approximately US$3 million over a period of three years, commencing 1 October 2020.

 

Cummins Romania offers a wide range of new and refurbished Cummins engines and power generation equipment, spare parts and qualified service for a wide range of applications across a broad spread of industries.

 

Setcar will provide Cummins Romania with a total waste management service including collection and management of the different types of waste generated during production - from oil and oil contaminated water to out of spec equipment, packaging, paints and metallic waste - while ensuring traceability throughout the entire process.  Directs Plus's Grafysorber® technology will be used for the treatment of the oil and solvents contaminated waste and water, reducing the environmental impact compared to traditional waste disposal.

 

Commenting, Giulio Cesareo, Founder and CEO of Directa Plus, said: "This third major contract win since acquiring Setcar as a subsidiary illustrates the potential for growth in our key environmental vertical.  We hope to demonstrate further market penetration in industrial and oil and gas markets as we continue to roll out Setcar's services during the remainder of 2020."

 

This announcement has been approved by Giulio Cesareo, Chief Executive, on behalf of the Company.
