Zero Waste Era for UAE Food Processing Plant

Dubai, UAE

MARS Inc has 2015 zero waste plan and 2 tonnes of waste which cannot be recycled. Being such a globally recognised company, they needed an alternative waste management method with a company they could trust to sustain its reputation of excellence. That’s where Addfield comes in.

The Importance of incineration

  • Landfills are quickly reaching full capacity since the land has limited space.
  • Buying an incinerator from a reputable company, such as Addfield, allows the possibility of waste-to-energy technologies being implemented.
  • Pollution control is also a contemporary system which prevents incinerators from being the ‘smoking, smelling pollutants’ they have previously been known as.

Fitting into the plan

A prototype machine was manufactured, and a program of emissions monitoring testing was performed at the Addfield manufacturing facility by a MCERT’s accredited, independent emission monitoring company. The results gained were used to measure its performance against stringent legislation.

The machine was delivered late in 2014 and has a load capacity of 1000kg. It was supplied with a high-temperature ash ejection vacuum system for ease of de-ashing.

Due to its success, the machine has been used as a pilot scheme, which has now been rolled out to other sites in Saudi Arabia.

Which incinerator?

After an extensive research and development phase that focused on the specific types of waste generated on-site, including (but not exclusive to) food waste, packaging and laboratory waste, a bespoke machine was proposed and developed to deal with the waste generated.

The proposed bespoke machine had an: Increased after-chamber size, designed to deal with an increased emission flow rate and 1100C after-chamber temperature. PLC after chamber upgrade allowing for more control over a mixed waste stream Magnetic door interlocks to prevent unauthorised access.
