About this project

In Northwich (in the northwest of England) an ambitious environmental project is under construction: REnescience. Household waste is the raw material for biomass and biogas. The principle is revolutionary: enzymes ensure that the organic fraction is separated from the solid fraction.

Project: filtering waste

REnescience is now being applied by VDL ETG Projects in the realisation of one of the first processing plants in the world. The enzymes used are of natural origin. They know how to deal with different types of waste, as long as organic substances make up the majority. After treatment and filtering, the solid fraction that remains is so clean that plastics and metals can be recovered without any problems using conventional techniques. The project is challenging mainly because of its size: 15 tonnes of waste must be processed per hour.

Vicoma’s role: deployment of multidisciplinary team

Initially Vicoma was contracted for piping work in particular. Eventually a complete multidisciplinary Vicoma team worked on this project, including process and structural engineering. The mechanical engineering team also took care of the layout engineering of the entire installation. The new equipment was classified in the most effective and practical way. Our team also took care of the specification of the required equipment, design of conveyor belts and transport screws, subcontracting, selection of suppliers, quotation evaluations, production and purchase supervision.

Result: successful processing plant

The REnesience processing plant has been successfully built in the United Kingdom. Through the clean processing of household waste and its conversion into biomass and biogas, this project contributes to a cleaner environment.
