After the energy has been recovered in the form of electricity/heat, a non-hazardous bottom ash (Incinerator Bottom Ash – IBA) is left.
IBAA (Incinerator Bottom Ash Aggregate) is produced from the residual ash left in an EfW (Energy from Waste) plant which is used to incinerate household waste and recover the energy from household waste.
This is where Ballast Phoenix Limited's expertise comes into play, with processing of the IBA, to recover any residual metals, which are sent to metals companies and brought back into use, but more importantly the great majority of the IBA is processed to create a sustainable source of aggregate (IBAA) for use in many construction applications.
As a result of BPL's processing and aggregate expertise, all the IBA is diverted from landfill. Whatever the complicated Euro terminology, by recovering all the IBA, BPL effectively recycles about 20% by mass of the original tonnage of MSW, doing our bit to save the world's resources!
