Recycling Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA)
Diverting more material from landfill
MVV has an obligation both under its contract with the South West Devon Waste Partnership and the planning permission granted by Plymouth City Council to recycle at least 95% of the IBA produced at the EfW CHP Facility. MVV has held discussions with potential end users for the processed IBA and submitted a report on those discussions to Plymouth City Council. We will in due course publish details of where and how the IBA will be recycled locally. At the moment, the IBA is shipped to Holland, where it is recycled.
