The Environment Agency has duly made an application for a new incinerator bottom ash (IBA) recycling facility to be located at Ridham Dock in Kent.
The application for an installation permit was made of behalf of Fortis IBA Limited who are one of the UK’s largest IBA processing companies, operating two plants and currently processing in excess of 220,000 tonnes of IBA per annum.
IBA will be imported to the Site before undergoing dry processing and treatment to remove recyclable material and convert the residue into a marketable product in the form of a sustainable recycled aggregate known as IBA Aggregate (IBAA). IBAA will then be exported from the Site for re-use in construction projects. It is proposed that annual waste throughputs are limited to 400,000 tonnes per annum.
