Turmec to Upgrade Recycling Facility in Scotland

Irish waste processing and recycling solutions provider Turmec will support Scottish recycling and waste management business Levenseat Ltd to double the waste sorting capacity at its site at Falkirk.

As reported by Turmec, the international provider of waste processing and recycling solutions has been awarded a contract worth 4.2 million British Pound (converted to about 5.1 million US-Dollar). The company is commissioned to upgrade a materials recycling facility (MRF) at Falkirk in Scotland. The facility was purchased from Avondale Environmental by West Lothian recycling and waste management business, Levenseat. The upgrade program is intended to realize a plant designed to process up to 200,000 tons of waste per year, which will almost double Levenseat’s current sorting line capacity. “The introduction of new technologies and automated processes will upskill the labor input on the line,” Turmec gave account. “The new facility will continue to accept waste from its existing customers and will enable Levenseat to expand its public and private sector business across central Scotland.” Improvements to the upgraded MRF would allow it to process and recover a much wider range of materials, including bulky waste, which has traditionally been difficult to recycle. The Falkirk site also processes mixed household, commercial, industrial, construction and demolition waste. Through its industry experience and investment in the facility, Levenseat says it will introduce new, innovative processes to ensure more of this waste stream is recovered for recycling with remaining un-recyclable materials converted into fuel.
