In late 2015, a trial was undertaken to process difficult waste streams, plastic and foil packets containing organic waste, which were being discarded into landfills.
The successful trial reduced the waste volume by 70% and the weight of the waste by 50%. The output was a dry and sterilised high calorific solid fuel. A problematic waste stream was effectively transformed into a valuable energy source.
As a result of this trial, the manufacturer, together with EnviroNZ, are installing a Waste to Energy Waste Processor in Whanganui. This processor will enable the manufacturer to achieve its zero waste to landfill policy.
