Danish bottom ash operator targets UK

A Danish recycler of incinerator bottom ash (IBA) is moving into the British market and looking for partnerships with energy-from-waste operators and local authorities.

Meldgaard offers IBA producers a financial return by cutting waste disposal costs and generating additional revenue from a share in the value of recovered materials.

In Denmark, the company boasts more than 25 operational facilities covering government contracts, local authorities and industry using its triple-eddy current separator.

“The triple-eddy current separator gives us one of the highest levels of non-ferrous metal recovery on the market,” says Martin Bjerregaard of Meldgaard UK.

In addition to designing and building fixed treatment options for specific applications and throughputs, Meldgaard offers a mobile IBA recycling solution that brings feedstock processing, separation and recovery of recyclables to the incinerator location.

“We feel the time has come for the UK to benefit from mobile IBA recycling, because it reduces the need for UK local authorities and waste-to-energy operators to transport IBA across the country,” said Bjerregaard. “It’s more convenient for the operator, and less of a risk to the local authority.”

  • Founded in 1970 as a family business, Meldgaard processes over 700,000 tonnes of IBA annually.
