“With our focus set firmly on sustainable policies of
re-use and re-processing, we now lead the environmental waste industry by embracing new zero to landfill technologies”
Refuse Derived and solid recovered fuels
The use of cement has significantly contributed to worldwide economies, and is considered to be the Second most-consumed substance in our society. The amount used in construction is more than double the total of all other building materials, including wood, steel, plastic and aluminium.
Environmental responsibilities are high on the cement industry’s agenda because the Manufacturing process requires extremely high temperatures, which consume about ten times more energy than the average amount required by other manufacturing processes.
The average amount of energy required to produce one tonne of cement is equivalent to the combustion of approximately 120 kg of coal.
Using RDF as alternative fuel has greatly helped the cement industry to manage its environmental impact.
Today, many plants derive up to 70% of their energy from alternative fuels. In the past cement companies have traditionally burned coal, petroleum coke and other fossil fuels in cement kilns. But many of them have turned to alternative fuels which substitute approximately 3 million tonnes of coal every year.
Materials Suitable for RDF
Waste materials which are generally reusable as RDF include rubber, paper, textiles, wood, plastics, and industrial waste. Cement kilns require a homogeneous RDF composition which is uniform not only in shape and size but also in calorific value. To achieve uniform size, it is generally required that waste has to go through an adequate process of size reduction to make it reusable as a quality RDF. The material has to be uniform in size to facilitate transportation, and in many cases must be selected by a screen to obtain the optimal final size for the kilns.
Plasterboard and gypsum Recycling
We can recycle 100% of all plasterboard wastes, gypsum wallboard and gypsum based products.

- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Sustainable and responsible
- Nationwide auditable collection service
- 100% recycled achieving "Zero Landfill"
- Fully licensed and bespoke facilities
- Sustainable & environmentally sound process
- Reduced waste disposal costs
Composting is nature's way of recycling biodegradable waste such as such as food waste, garden waste, cardboard, wood, crop residue and industrial by-products and turning it into an organic compost or soil improver for application back to land
We specialize in diverting the biodegradable fraction of waste from landfill and transporting it to a network of composting facilities for processing at a reduced cost to the customer and the environment.
Below are other wastes that we recycle through sustainable technologies
- Mattress recycling
- Food wastes
- Hazardous wood
- Road Sweepings
- Gully Waste
