$1,598,589

The project will recover metals from light fraction shredder residue through the use of screens and sorters with potential to utilise the remaining waste as fuel for an energy from waste plant in the future.

Sims Metal Management

Sims floc diversion project
$1,600,000

This proposal will introduce a sizing, metal recovery process and baling system resulting in a by-product having a high calorific value suitable for use as a processed engineered fuel in a transportable and saleable form resulting in a 20 per cent diversion from landfill of the generated floc.
