There is little doubt that the waste industry is experiencing an increase in demand for more purity in recovered waste products according to Con Gallagher, Head of Global Sales at Kiverco Limited. “Projects we have on the table in 2020 clearly show that companies are looking for better segregation and want to ‘future-proof’ their processing capabilities to give them a much cleaner product for recycling/use.”
There are a number of factors driving this demand. Businesses buying recovered waste products are insisting on cleaner supply, mainly driven by tighter regulations on quality. Waste to Energy plants are also demanding cleaner RDF/SRF fuel from waste management companies to reduce harmful emissions. Finally, a ‘greener, more sustainable’ future is gathering momentum globally with people insisting that we need to live within our natural resource limits to protect the earth and reduce the harmful impact from mineral exploration.
“More and more we are discussing the ‘cleaner products’ requirement with potential customers around the globe. Co-mingled waste needs better segregation and to do so requires more technologically advanced systems, which is something we have been offering here at Kiverco for many years. We have the knowledge and ability to design a process that will provide up to 97% waste recovery and separate each waste type effectively with little to no contamination. This is what our customers want and they are prepared to invest in the right kit to do so.”
