Our project rationale provides the basis to engage an environmental resource management(ERM) approach in our business model. We deploy sorting lines with high speed RDF balers at our Transfer Station to provide us a comparative advantage in our RDF production line. The transfer station sorting facility features a single-line 25-30tph auto-sorting, and waste recycling module which has the capacity to process up-to 700tons/day.

The semi-automatic sensor based sorting facilities presents an advantage to effectively sort MSW for processing into organic fertilizer and RDF for alternative fuel. To achieve our goals for a high speed sorting and baling facility, we engage the Beston MRF collection and auto-sorting technology and the Macpresse MAC 110/1 baler for our transfer station facility.

At our dumpsites and landfill, we engage in the remediation, reclaiming and re-sorting of waste into feedstock, through recycling by separation into Heavy Fuel Oil, Carbon Black, Steel wire, and baling of feedstock into RDF, plastics, paper, metals and reuse through conversion into fertilizer and power.

MACPRESSE EUROPA, our landfill remediation partner is one of the biggest companies worldwide operating in the field of plants for waste and recyclables treatment. The business has primarily been family owned since its set-up in 1875. Macpresse, today is present in over 50 countries worldwide, with an extensive network of service centres. Being on the global market for over 50 years – with more than 15 patents owned – Macpresse invests in innovation and research to enhance production efficiency and optimize costs for its customers.

The establishment of an IWMF is critical to our strategy. Our IWMF features 2-lines 25-30tph auto-sorting, and waste recycling modules which have the capacity to process up-to 1500tons/day. The optimization achievable from sensor based auto-sorting facilities presents an advantage to efficiently sort MSW for processing into RDF, organic fertilizer and power as the case is. At our IWMF, we shall engage the PLAZMA MAKINE collection and auto-sorting technology for our MRF. Consequently, we shall develop a mechanical biological treatment arrangement which will deliver zero waste as MSW is sorted and organic content are converted into fertilizer through a seamless arrangement.

PLAZMA MAKINE is a Turkish based manufacturer of MRF plant which includes machinery production and assemblage. Each Sorting line is designed to process 100,000-150,000tons of MSW per year with two shifts. The MRF facility consists of two alongside sorting lines for which when engaging a third shift it has an annual capacity of 300.000 tons/year.

The MRF at WasteConv shall process recyclable materials for use in its fertilizer and power plants. The MRF takes in a broad stream of solid waste and separates out recyclable materials through manual and mechanical sorting. The recyclables are processed mainly for its use as HDPE and tyres are utilized by its pyrolysis plant to produce HFO for use in its intermediate generating plant to provide power to the MRF and fertilizer plants, as well as the start-up of the gasification plant, while the syn-gas produced is reused in the pyrolysis. The MRF is semi-automated and uses ultraviolet optical scanners and magnet to simultaneously sort paper, cardboard, aluminum, plastics, glass and metals while workers augment the sorting of items by hand.

The state-of-the-arts rapid thermophilic digestor provides an optimum working environment for the enzymes as they are in an enclosed and controlled system.

The waste to fertilizer plant is a mechanical biological treatment facility which uses an in-vessel rapid thermophilic digestor technology. The Biomax breakthrough technology converts organic waste into 100% premium grade organic fertilizer at high temperature within 24hours. The technology employed by Biomax is the fastest process so far in organic waste treatment industry. Biomax is highly committed in its research and development which innovates various enzyme-based solution to support sustainable business operations.

Our IWMF is powered by waste derived heavy oil as we embark on a low carbon footprint at our conversion plants. WasteConv’s IWMF shall engage the Shangqui Jinpeng tyre waste pyrolysis technology. The tyre pyrolysis plant is an environmental protection system which uses the continuous liquefaction technology and catalytic breakdown reaction to convert HDPE plastics and tyre into renewable resources, such as fuel oil, carbon black, steel wire, and combustible gas. The end products can be applied to diesel engines and generators directly, or come into high ranking diesel and gasoline through Shangqui Jinpeng’s pyrolysis oil distillation plant.

With annual sales income of about 180 million RMB and about 16 million USD of foreign exchange through exports per year, Shangqiu Jinpeng Industrial Co., Ltd is at the forefront of research development and deployment of waste pyrolysis technology world-wide.

HaiQi International Holdings (UK) Ltd, specializes in gasification technology which provides us with a comparative advantage to produce 18MW green power. The gasification technology is proven beyond doubt: in 2009 seven operating plants built since 1997 had accumulated a combined total of 400,000 hours. The existing plants achieve outstanding environmental results, with minimal impact on the local community. Henan Haiqi pyrolysis gasifier uses the principle of pyrolysis gasification to treat waste, ensuring the stability and high efficiency of combustion conditions. Our strategy to produce electricity from pyrolysis gasification provides us with a zero waste at landfill model as we are able to completely convert all waste at the dumpsite at Aba Eku into useable products – fly-ash and electricity. Our plan to deploy an efficient gasification technology is predicated on the waste assessment of the existing feedstock at Aba Eku and the design of an effective waste collection program which is being put in place for waste collection in the six LGAs – Ona Ara, Oluyole, Egbeda, Ibadan SE, Ibadan SW and Ibadan NE surrounding the plant location.

PYROLYSIS GASIFIER

The Pyrolysis gasification technology is called “third generation” waste treatment technology. The excellent environmental performance is the biggest advantage of this pyrolysis gasification technology. The most fundamental difference between this technology and waste direct incineration technology lies in its capability to solve the problem of smoke pollution, no secondary pollution, and the smoke reaches the standard by which it suppresses the production of dioxins.
