Specialist metal recycler begins construction of new plant

Specialist waste recycler Edelchemie has begun construction on its new treatment plant in Cheshire, which will meet increased demand for its services.

The firm provides recycling solutions for the recovery of metals, ammonia and other components from industrial residues and by-products. It has seen increased demand for its services recently due to stricter environmental regulations, higher disposal rates and high commodity prices.

Edelchemie managing director Leo Neveles said: We have outgrown the Market Harborough site where we have been for 14 years and we are unable to expand any further. As we dont wish to work from multiple sites, we have moved to a much bigger space in Cheshire.

Capable of processing 15,000 tonnes of material annually, the new £3.2 million facility is situated on a site 25 times bigger than the previous Market Harborough plant. Hydro-metallurgical treatments, metal smelting and electrolytic refining for the production of copper, nickel, tin cobalt and molybdenum will also be installed over the next 18 months.

Edelchemie is currently speaking to two potential buyers of the transfer facility in Market Harborough.
