Vantage Waste Processor stirs international interest

Reclaim Resources has developed a continuous-feed waste processing system, which processes municipal waste into biodiesel, bio-ethanol and sanitised materials.

The companys Vantage Waste Processor (VWP) treats waste with high temperature steam, then the materials are separated into different materials streams and reclaimed.

Developers are keen to emphasise that although it has air lock doors, this process is continuous and is not anything like an autoclave, which is slower and has to be loaded and unloaded.

The prototype began operating this year, on a site near Bournemouth, and its results suggest an expected commercial volume of 20 million litres of biofuel could be produced from its 75,000 tonne capacity.

A patented odour removal system within the process aims to make the VWP more attractive to users and the local community.

Local authorities are being invited to consider the system and the company has said it has had encouraging international interest from the US, Canada, India, Russia and the Ukraine.

Company managing director Philip Hall said: The VWP is the culmination of two years of development and provides a more efficient and cost effective solution to dealing with waste than existing technologies.

We believe we have created the worlds most technically advanced waste processing system.
