Yorkshire planning approval for bottom ash recycler

Yorkshire recycling park Beeley Woodhas gained planning permission for a bottom ash recycling facility to be built onsite.

A facility, with the capacity to process about 52,000 tonnes of bottom ash into marketable ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as aggregates for use in the construction industry, will be built by Ballast Phoenix.

Supply contracts for the facility are still being finalised and the company hopes to secure a deal with Sheffields main energy-from-waste plant run by Veolia Environmental Services.

The parks managers, Loxley Land and Property, are pleased with the progress, property manager Eldon Stevens said: This planning approval confirms our early belief that Beeley Wood, due to its scale and strategic positioning, presents an excellent opportunity for locating recycling organisations. Large blue chip recycling companies such as Ballast Phoenix need to adhere to such high levels of Environment Agency regulation and as EDS is also a major blue chip organisation, we are well practised in ethical and environmental conduct.

Pipeline plans for the developmentalso include an educational visitors centre for people to learn about the importance of recycling and the processes involved.

Ballast Phoenix runs similar operations in other parts of the UK in partnership with local authorities and waste contractors.
