Joint venture to recover metals from ashes

Inashco and Wheelabrator Technologies have announced the formation of a North American-based joint venture company dedicated to the recycling of ferrous and nonferrous metals from the waste-to-energy process.

The 50/50-owned joint venture company, Eco Recovery Solutions LLC (ERS), will use Inashco’s patented and proprietary Advanced Dry Recovery (ADR) technology to enhance the recovery of ferrous and non-ferrous metals at waste-to-energy facilities. Non-ferrous metals will include copper, zinc, lead and aluminum as small as 0.5 mm in size.
ERS will benefit from Inashco’s specialized, proprietary Central Upgrading Facilities currently located in Europe and planned for the U.S. The recycling process at these facilities produces two streams of high value material – a heavy non-ferrous product and also a light non-ferrous product for sale to Fondel Metals, Inashco’s parent company. ERS also plans to develop aggregate reuse opportunities with the improved ash residue downstream of the ADR process with the ultimate goal of a circular economic solution for ash management.
