EnVar open state-of-the-art waste-composting facility
Green waste operators turn to Kiverco for new high-performance processing plant
KIVERCO and EnVar, two waste and recycling experts in their respective fields, have joined forces to help to protect the environment and create resources for future generations; as a new Kiverco waste screening plant has been installed at EnVar’s Woodhurst waste-treatment site in Cambridgeshire.
Unveiled last month, Kiverco were given a brief to design and install a static custom-built composting plant as opposed to the five separate systems that were currently being used. It was also important for EnVar that the new plant could easily cope with the increasing volumes of waste being handled on site and be flexible in terms of the different fractions that can be sifted.
JP Devlin of Kiverco commented: ‘When engineering this recycling plant, we were not afraid to do something different to ensure the client had the best solution for their specific needs. This involved us working closely with third parties throughout the process to ensure every element of the plant was perfect for EnVar.’
The plant comprises eight different systems to ensure maximum uptime and output. These include: a dosing feeder that provides a consistent and metered flow of material; a waste screen separating material with measurements of less than 150mm; a picking station; and a combi station that screens out 0-10mm products and splits material (10-30mm and 30-150mm) using a vibrator screen.
The screening plant also features density separation, in-line magnets (for the removal of ferrous metals) and a de-stoner that removes stone from two fractions. Now operating fully, the Kiverco plant is expected to process over 100,000 tonnes of green waste and other related materials per year.
John Lines, sales and marketing director of Kiverco, said: ‘It is always a pleasure to work with our customers and see in action the differences that our plant can make to the waste-management process. As a company, we strive to minimize the amount of waste that is sent to landfill and we hope to help EnVar continue to reach its full potential in the composting industry.’
