IBA Processing in the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom has a long established Energy from Waste industry, and Blue Phoenix Group began its life offering an alternative from landfill for the IBA (Incinerator Bottom Ash) from this customer base.

The processing of IBA provides a valuable supply of non-ferrous and ferrous metals for further recycling and an aggregate suitable for use in Construction. IBAA (Incinerator Bottom Ash Aggregate) is a true demonstration of Circular Economics and it is a product that we truly believe is a sustainable alternative to natural aggregates.

How we do it

Blue Phoenix UK assures the production of a constant quality aggregate from a daily changing and inhomogeneous IBA flow while assuring maximized metal recoveries.

IBA processing produces a manufactured aggregate that is suitable for road construction and large infrastructure projects. Manufactured aggregates are a great way to reuse the IBA, prevent landfilling and mining of construction materials.
