Technology provider Turmec has been awarded a contract to design and install a ‘state-of-the-art’ recycling line for Wilton Recycling in Ireland. The processing system will deal with commercial, demolition and industrial waste.
The Irish family-run company’s site in Cavan is expanding operations with the additional line. The updated facility will recover high value recyclates for use in various high-grade applications, with the residual material processed into fuel for cement manufacturers, among others. Wilton expects the new system to come online before the end of the year.
Over the last 50 years, Turmec has grown from a skip-hire services provider into a metal recycling wheelie bin specialist, handling a wider range of materials. These include commercial, industrial and construction waste, which together comprise over 50% of Ireland’s total waste stream.
‘Wilton Recycling strives to provide best in class waste collection and recycling solutions to all our customers across Ireland,’ says ceo Rodney Wilton. ‘Turmec has been a key and supportive partner on our journey and this facility will provide us with market leading processing and recycling capabilities that will recover high value commodities for recycling.’
Meanwhile, ahead of the 2032 Olympic Games in Australia, Turmec has been awarded a EUR 30 million contract to design and deliver a recycling solution for Rino Recycling near Brisbane. This new facility is positioned to become one of the largest construction and demolition waste recovery sites in Australia with recovery rates of up to 99% and a processing capacity of 475 tonnes per hour.
‘The completion of this integrated hybrid plant will be the first of its type around the world and will pave the way for the future of recycling,’ according to general manager Daniel Blaser.
