Ash Recycling

A waste-to-energy plant is no longer the end point for materials. With our innovative technology, we process fly and bottom ash to recover raw materials from waste-to-energy residues as well as other industrial residues and return the recovered materials, metals and minerals, back into circulation.

Built-in sustainability

We help you to reduce the CO2 emissions and to be part of the transition from the linear economy towards the circular economy.

Transforming waste streams back into raw materials with a low CO2 footprint

Our mission is to transform waste streams back to raw materials and we aim to close the loop in the waste-to-energy process. Our ash recycling solutions reduce CO2 emissions and boost material efficiency, while enabling a circular economy for non-recyclable waste through safe and sustainable material recovery.
