The different waste management legislations across countries, also means that the use of IBA must comply with the country-specific environmental regulations. In the Netherlands, the clean aggregates washed with our patented technologies are suitable for civil work and can be used without restrictions.Read more
The extraction of primary aggregates for construction and transport to construction sites places enormous pressure on the environment. Mineral mining accounts for 2.8% of the global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and 52% of the 100 billion tons of materials that enter the global economy each year (The Circularity Gap Report, 2021).
The great majority of the incinerator bottom ash (IBA) consists of minerals including inert brick, rubble, glass, ceramics, and stone that can be repurposed into manufactured aggregates for construction material. It is our mission to reduce the dependency on mining and the depletion of the earth's resources while contributing to decreasing the carbon footprint of the civil construction industry.
How we do it
We bring over 20 years of experience handling IBA and recovery of the IBA Aggregates (IBAA). We produce a constant quality manufactured aggregate from a daily changing and inhomogeneous IBA flow. Our specialists help civil engineering and construction companies to optimize their materials matrix. Blue Phoenix Group performs quality assessments on the IBAA application to limit the environmental impacts and assure a manufactured aggregate that complies with local environmental specifications.
In the United Kingdom, Blue Phoenix UK is the largest supplier of IBAA for use as a construction material. With over 20 years of experience processing and handling IBA, we believe that IBAA can be better used and offer an alternative manufactured aggregate suitable for many applications.Read more
In Australia, Blue Phoenix Group will commence its operations in 2022. We bring our experience and knowledge on IBA processing to Australia. We will ensure the appropriate use of the manufactured aggregates and conduct thorough environmental risk assessments to reduce the environmental impact. We now contribute to the circularity of the EfW sector in Australia.Read more
