We provide a recycling solution for all types of fly ash using the most suitable method. Depending on the type of fly ash and its hazardousness, we have, in addition to conventional recycling methods, our own innovative, state-of-the-art technology available. Regardless of the selected method, we are working to reduce the CO2 emissions of ash recycling for our customers.
Fly ash recycling
Fly ash is a hazardous by-product and the very last remaining waste type originating from the incineration of waste in waste-to-energy plants. At Fortum, we strive to be among the first companies in the world to recover and recycle all valuable raw materials from waste-to-energy fly ashes.
Using the best technology for fly ash recycling
Be part of the circular economy
Currently, our novel ash refining process reduces CO2 emissions remarkably compared to traditional treatment methods. In the near future, we are embarking on the next steps to recover salts, metals and minerals from fly ash. Our ultimate target is to utilise all the materials which are fed into recycling process.
Fortum and circular economy company Westenergy are developing waste-to-energy solutions to be even better for the environment. Fortum's new ash refining method significantly reduces the carbon dioxide emissions from Westenergy’s operations.
