Derwen commissioned a sophisticated recycling and recovery plant in 2013 which utilises a combination of automated and manual waste sorting technologies, the aim of the process is to maximise the quality and quantity of the recycled materials. The process is a dis-assembly line and incorporates advanced technologies including air and optical sorters to acheive a high quality output material for the end market.
Derwen achieve a recycling rate of 70% on this material. the residual waste from this process is then baled as Refused Derived Fuel (RDF). The landfill diversion rate is >98%
If you have an interest in recycled or recovered output please contact us to discuss.
With the objective to achieve zero waste to landfill the residual waste from the process is baled and transported to facilities in Europe for use in the production of RDF. The bales are sent via road to energy producing plants which produce district heat and water.
Derwen are constantly researching options and exploring opportunities to support the circular economy within Wales and the UK.
