UNIQUE FACILITY FOR RECYCLING FLY ASH INAUGURATED
On November 17, Stena Metall, together with Danish Vestforbrænding, inaugurated the world's first full-scale HaloSep plant. The plant converts fly ash from combustion processes into useful resources such as metals and salt, as well as purified fly ash.
The HaloSep technology has tremendous potential in reducing the environmental and climate footprint of incinerators worldwide. The technology has already attracted interest in several parts of the world, and this is not expected to decrease as the demonstration plant is started and delivers results. At the same time, the plant will demonstrate new possibilities for the use of residual products by, for example, using the purified fly ash in construction materials.
Stena Metall has started a new company, HaloSep AB, which has been tasked with commer-cializing and selling the solution on the global market.
“We have no doubt at all that we will be delivering many plants like the one at Vestforbrænding around the world for many years to come,” said Staffan Svensson, president of HaloSep AB in his inaugural speech.
Among the other speakers at the digital inauguration were Dan Sten Olsson, Stena’s owner; Henrik Grand Petersen, president of Stena Recycling Denmark; and HaloSep developer Erik Rasmussen, Research and Development, Stena Metall.
The first plant has been built with the support of EU’s LIFE Programme.
