Inpress Plastics has signed a new agreement with Rabbit Waste Management which runs an ISO 1400 certified waste management plant.
“This is another important step in our commitment to a sustainable environment. By working with Rabbit we are ensuring that our waste is either recycled or used for responsible energy generation.”-Henry Powell (Commercial Director)
Rabbit delivers an eco-friendly waste management solution by the following process;
All waste collected by Rabbit is processed through a fully automated materials recovery facility to remove all recyclable substances: soil, bricks and hardcore go to the construction and aggregate industries; metals are sent directly to metal merchants and plastics are baled prior to going to specialist plastic pre-processors
The remaining, non-recyclable materials are then finely shredded and screened to remove any additional metals before being burnt, in a fully automated and closely monitored process, to generate super-heated steam which drives high-pressure turbines which, in turn, drive a generator to produce up to five megawatts of green electricity
The exhaust from the combustors is treated through a cooling process and filter plant, with all emissions being maintained below permitted levels and monitored 24/7 – even the ash produced is recycled into aggregate.
