Viridor to stop landfilling APCr by-products

Viridor has found an alternative to landfilling some of its incinerator residues, which could be timely given a possible ban on the hazardous substances from landfill

Waste management firm Viridor has bought into new technology that treats air pollution control residues (APCr) from incineration and turns them into a useful product.

Viridor signed a ten-year contract with Carbon8 Aggregates for removing, treating and recycling APCr, a by-product of the filtering process to clean exhaust gases that leave the plants through flue stacks.

The move brings the company closer to sending zero waste from its energy-from-waste (EfW) plants to landfill and puts it ahead of the curve since APCrs could be banned from landfill.
