A Belfast based recycling and waste management company has developed a new and innovative plant which will divert recycled waste for use as a fuel in the cement industry.

Wastebeater has established a Solid Recovery Fuel (SRF) Plant which will divert almost 100 per cent remaining residual waste from the commercial and industrial sector for use in the cement industry as a coal replacement fuel.

Managing Director Kieran Byrne said: “Our dual focus over the past 5 years has been recycling to the maximum level and making efficient use of the remaining waste through the creation of a coal replacement fuel for effective use in the cement industry. The aim at Wastebeater is to successfully develop a technology which enables us to totally divert the waste which remains away from landfill and using it as an energy source. We want Wastebeater to be the company that turns ‘energy from waste’ from being a high level concept into an industry reality.
