Meldgaard offers IBA producers such as Energy-from-Waste operators and local authorities a profitable financial return by removing waste disposal costs and through returning additional revenue from a share in the value of recovered materials.

The company's growth during the past 20 years has already allowed it to capture the Danish market with over 25 operational facilities covering government contracts, local authorities and industry.

But it is Meldgaard's triple-eddy current separator that offers UK local authorities and operators a real opportunity.

“This specialised Danish technology we have designed, the triple-eddy current separator, gives us one of the highest levels of non-ferrous metal recovery on the market,” explains Martin Bjerregaard of Meldgaard UK . “What's more, we can bring the IBA recycling plant to any UK facility as a mobile unit, allowing us to process smaller quantities than our competitors.”

Mobile IBA recycling and full plant options

In addition to designing and building fixed treatment options for specific applications and throughputs, Meldgaard offers a fully mobile IBA recycling solution that bring the feedstock processing, separation and recovery of recyclables to the incinerator location.

“We feel the time has come for the UK to benefit from mobile IBA recycling, because it reduces the need for UK local authorities and Waste-to-Energy operators to transport IBA across the country,” Bjerregaard commented. “It's more convenient for the operator, and less of a risk to the local authority.”

Meldgaard designs the mobile IBA treatment plants in-house with their own engineers and then manufactures them as bespoke machinery to ensure reliability and performance.

“We're proud of our experience and success in the Danish market and we are looking forward to arranging treatment and disposal of IBA in the UK in early 2012,” concluded Bjerregaard.
