WRAP Protocol amendment delivering recycling benefits to Road Sweeper Waste and Gully Waste processing.

Wrap has announced that the mineral fraction recovered by Mechanical and /or Biological Treatment (MBT) can now be used as feed stock for aggregate recycling, therefore allowing recovered material to be removed from the waste chain for the first time and achieve ‘End of Waste Status’.

The revised WRAP protocol states that End of Waste status will only be achieved if the treatment processes involves washing the input waste material with the design recovering the mineral as a ‘clean product free from organics’ and other contaminates. Therefore, simply screening the material without further treatment will not achieve the required separation.

This amendment plays very well to Sweeptech’s new 75,000 tonne per annum washing facility that breaks all input waste into fractions including sand, aggregate, plastics metals and organics.
