As part of Rotherham’s Council’s Regeneration Plans for the area which was formerly the Coking Works at Orgreave. It is adjacent to the successfully growing Advanced Manufacturing Park there is consent for 10,000 New Homes, A new Waverley Primary Academy, with further plans for new Retail and Leisure Facilities.
Meeting the Local Authority’s exacting Technical standards for an adoptable road, Incinerator Bottom Ash Aggregate (IBAA) Type 1 subbase used an alternative to a primary material and covered with asphalt.
IBAA is an extremely cost-effective material when compared to Primary Aggregates and BP UK is working towards a verified Carbon Footprint. There are also advantages logistically when using IBAA due to the low density of the material allowing for fewer vehicle movements as this gives volumetric advantages over primary materials.
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. The use of manufactured aggregates from IBA prevents landfilling, mining of virgin raw materials and contributes to the circular economy.
