In Europe, there are different needs from country to country regarding the processing and the use of IBA. Blue Phoenix Group has developed a suite of solutions to adapt to each situation. We use in-house developed and patented technologies in combination with industry-standard equipment to design and build efficient processing installations.Read more
Processing Incinerator Bottom Ash
The increase in municipal solid waste (MSW) in the past decades is a major environmental and societal concern. Waste management technologies have continuously improved to recycle and manage waste to minimize the impacts on the environment. Nevertheless, a great proportion of our waste cannot effectively be recycled. The incineration of MSW for energy recovery is an effective way to utilize the so called “non-recyclable” portion, reduce waste volume and replace fossil fuels to generate energy for our society. The energy recovery process liberates valuable resources that can now be extracted from the ash residues and recirculated in our economy.
How we do it
Blue Phoenix Group operates incinerator bottom ash (IBA) installations globally and helps the Energy-from-Waste (EfW) sector with an alternative sustainable solution for IBA. We process the IBA and extract valuable resources such as manufactured aggregates and metals that can be used as secondary raw materials.
In the United States, the IBA residue of most Energy-from-Waste facilities is a mix between the bottom ash, boiler ash, and fly ash. Processing this combined ash is more challenging than in any other region we operate. The addition of fly ash in particular causes combined ash to be relatively fine and compact, therefore, making it difficult to process with industry-standard equipment.Read more
In Australia, the landfilling of MSW is a common practice despite its potential to be used as an energy source and secondary materials. The market for waste incineration has just begun with the construction of the first Energy-from-Waste facility. Blue Phoenix Group will assure the safe and responsible processing and handling of IBA to produce sustainable raw materials.Read more
