ANDRITZ to Boost Fridge Recycling Capacity for Enva Northern Ireland’s New Plant in Toomebridge

(IN BRIEF) ANDRITZ, an international technology group, will supply Enva Northern Ireland Ltd. with an automated fridge recycling plant for their new site in Toomebridge. The plant will process 70 fridges per hour and is set to start operating in 2024. This investment will increase Enva’s capacity and efficiency in recycling household fridges in Ireland. The plant’s ADuro QZ shredder technology enables quick and safe recycling of fridges, producing high-quality output material ready for sale. The project highlights ANDRITZ’s leading position in innovative reject and recycling technology and Enva Group’s commitment to waste management and resource recovery.

(PRESS RELEASE) GRAZ, 4-Aug-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Enva Northern Ireland recycles the majority of household fridges in Ireland. With this investment, the company is increasing its capacity and efficiency. Barry Phillips of Enva Northern Ireland says: “The new ANDRITZ plant, in addition to doubling our current capacity, will also achieve the final shred size in a single step, giving us high-quality output material ready for sale. Another important advantage is that we will be able to process domestic and commercial fridges at the same time.”

Franz Frühauf, Sales Director Reject and Recycling at ANDRITZ adds: “The heart of the plant is our ADuro QZ shredder. It does not use any cutting tools, but gently and quickly breaks up the input material by using the effects of impact forces. It is a breakthrough technology because it makes valuable waste material quickly accessible without potentially harmful substances emanating from individual parts – all at low operating costs.”

The scope of supply comprises the complete dismantling and sorting plant for simultaneous processing of CFC and pentane fridges from domestic or commercial markets in any ratio.

This project once again confirms ANDRITZ’s strong market position as a leading supplier of innovative reject and recycling technology and services, as well as ANDRITZ’s expertise especially in critical waste streams.
