ClientLarge Waste Management Company

DBD Environmental provided engineering and process advice to a large waste management company during the feasibility, design and approvals process and initial operations phase for a material processing facility at their waste transfer station site. Our involvement included working collaboratively with the client during the above stages to assess plant and material requirements, assist with trials of variations to plant and process and ad hoc technical advice as required.

The outcome was the successful technical, regulatory and financial processing of waste materials that led to cost savings, reduction in waste to landfill and meeting all relevant EPA conditions. The process is set to be rolled out across the board in order to provide the same level of benefit.  

The main disciplines undertaken included the following:  

  • Material handling assessment
  • Trial design and implementation
  • Process design and optimisation
  • Waste sampling and assessment
  • Cost benefit analysis
  • Reporting against regulatory requirements
