Northern Ireland company secures Nigeria business

Recycling plant equipment provider EMS Recycle has signed a deal to supply a bespoke MRF to Nigerian engineering company WestAfricaENRG.

EMS Recycle, which is based in Northern Ireland, will provide a waste-sorting station as well as additional specialist recycling equipment to sort waste materials mechanically and prepare it for further recycling.

The facility is expected to process more than 350,000 tonnes of waste per year.

Paul O’Callaghan, chief executive at WestAfricaENRG, said: “Unlike those countries in Europe, the US, Canada and Australia, where recycling rates are climbing with the support of tightening legislative requirements, many African nations still have relatively basic waste management processes, which is why this innovative, state-of-the-art equipment is so strategically important.”

EMS Recycle intends to expand its reach in the UK, Europe, Africa, North and South America.
