The Bottom Ash Washing Installation (BAWI) in the Netherlands takes unprocessed IBA as an input. The washing line consists of multiple washing steps and has fully integrated ferrous and non ferrous metal recovery. The output minerals comply with the Dutch soil degree and can be used freely in civil construction works throughout the Netherlands.Read more
Dry ash processing in FranceDownload Case Study
In France the majority of the IBA is processed with conventional equipment removing ferrous and non-ferrous metals. The remaining aggregates are used on landfill and infrastructure projects accros France.
Blue Phoenix Europe has integrated its ballistic separation technology into the existing IBA processing installation of R.E.P. (Veolia) to further improve the fine non-ferrous metal recovery. The ADR technology enables R.E.P. to process IBA more effectively and therefore deliver a higher quality aggregate for further use as a secondary aggregate in civil construction works.

IBA processing prevents the landfilling of valuable materials, reducing the reliance on the mining of primary materials. The mineral and metal industries disrupt ecosystems and emit greenhouse gas emissions from extraction, refining, and transportation. IBA processing enables cities to be more sustainable by responsibly managing waste and providing an “urban” mine for secondary raw materials.
Landfilling IBA from MSW has major impacts on the environment, including land-use changes and pollution. IBA processing mitigates these impacts, extracting valuable resources that can be used as secondary raw materials, reducing the reliance on mining of virgin materials.
