Northern-Ireland based company Kiverco has installed a new construction and demolition waste recovery plant at Roberts Waste in Somerset in the south west of England.
The plant was purchased to replace an older waste with the objective of processing current volumes more efficiently and increasing capacity, allowing the company to grow the waste business over the next three years.
Roberts Waste has been in business for more than 80 years and this latest investment from Roberts Waste will enable the company to handle more waste each day from the local area.
The Kiverco plant consists of a hopper/feeder, Combi waste screen, five-bay picking station for manual sorting, two overband magnets to remove ferrous metals, an air density separator (ADS) to remove lights material from the mid-size fraction and a powerful fan blower to remove any lights found in the oversize hardcore material at the end of the recovery process.
“The UK has been and continues to be our most important market and we are delighted to once again secure this order from the region,” said Kiverco global sales manager Con Gallagher.
The Kiverco plant is designed to process more than 60,000 t a year of construction and demolition waste. The system will recover fines, hardcore, ferrous metals, non-ferrous, hard plastics, plastic bottles wood and cardboard.
