Company secures long-term contract to produce incinerator bottom ash aggregates for Viridor
RAYMOND Brown Aggregates have won a new long-term contract to process incinerator bottom ash (IBA) for one of the UK’s leading recycling, waste-management and renewable energy companies.
Raymond Brown were chosen by Viridor to build and operate a new IBA processing facility to produce a secondary aggregate (IBA aggregate) at their new Oxfordshire plant.
The 15-year contract will see Raymond Brown, one of the country’s leading IBA processing companies, invest more than £2 million in new processing equipment.
‘We are delighted to have secured the IBA processing contract,’ said Steve Cole, Raymond Brown’s environmental and development director. ‘It’s a great achievement as part of our plan to become the leading producer of IBA aggregate in the UK.
IBA aggregate already has an impressive track record for use as a sustainable sub base in the construction industry.
‘By introducing IBA processing into the Oxfordshire market, we will be making a major contribution to the county’s mineral plan and will reduce the reliance on primary aggregates.’
The contract secured with Viridor will produce around 75,000 tonnes of IBA aggregates each year at the new Ardley ‘Energy from Waste’ facility, near Oxford. The new custom-built IBA processing plant is scheduled for operation by August 2014.
