AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Italy – Recycling Plant

Construction of a TetraPak recycling plant

Ecoplasteam is currently building the world’s first plant for the production of EcoAllene through the recycling of polyethylene and aluminium polycomposite recovered from food packaging (POAL; commonly known as TetraPak).

The loan of €4.2 million is being obtained by the Banca Popolare di Milano, with assistance from Swiss Merchant Corporation. The project is being implemented by Amut.

Once completed, the plant will enable Ecoplasteam to recycle 7,000 tonnes of waste coming from this particular packaging disposal, mainly from the polycomposite part (up to now only cellulose can be recovered).

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Bosnia and Herzegovina – Landfill & Recycling Yard

Construction of a solid waste landfill and a recycling yard

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) have announced plans to partly fund the Živinice Regional Solid Waste Project (No: 49631); which involve the construction of a solid waste landfill and a recycling yard in Živinice.

The loan of up to €6 million will be provided to the newly established regional solid waste company, Eko-Sep doo Zivinice.

Construction works will take part in 4 stages and include a 5.5 hectares landfill body, for the disposal of municipal non-hazardous waste; as well as a regional waste management centre consisting of a recycling yard, facility for mechanical and biological treatment of municipal waste and composting unit for treatment of biodegradable waste.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – China – Plastics-to-Fuel Plant

Construction of a plant to convert non-recyclable plastics into fuel

Integrated Green Energy Solutions (IGES) and Beautiful China Holdings (BCH) have announced plans to build a new plant in Weifang, Shandong Province, which will convert non-recyclable waste into fuel.

The plant will convert 200 tonnes of waste plastics per day – totalling 70 million litres of fuel for the transport sector per year.

Overall, IGES holds a 51% share in the project, while BCH will have a 49% share.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – UK – Waste-Co-Product Plant

Construction of a waste-to-co-product plant

ReNew ELP have announced plans to build and operate a new plant in Teeside, which will convert end-of-life plastics into valuable oils and chemicals using hydrothermal upgrading technology.

The plant is initially expected to recycle 20,000 tonnes of end-of-life plastic per annum; however ReNew ELP also have plans for a further three units, which could see the plant’s capacity expand to 80,000 tonnes per annum.

The technology used at the plant, which has been developed over the last 10 years in Australia, uses water at high pressure and temperatures to chemically recycle a wide range of materials, including end-of-life plastics and tyres, into synthetic oils and other chemicals. This technological development is particularly exciting as it uses water as the ‘agent of change’; meaning the plant can operate at far lower temperatures, making it more efficient.

Operation is expected to start in late 2019.
