Enva begins equipment installation at fridge recycling plant

Enva has now begun the installation of equipment which will see the site fully operational and capable of processing all Scotland’s waste fridges by spring 2024. ​ The project will see Enva continue its partnership with Andritz, one of the world’s leading providers of material separation and recovery technology providers.

The Andritz solution will incorporate the latest degassing and storage equipment, the ADuro QZ shredder and separation technologies designed to capture a range of materials including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, polyurethane and plastics. ​ Once operational the site will recycle and recover over 98% of a fridge’s components.

​ In addition to the having the potential to manage all Scotland’s waste fridges the ​ facility will also be able to recycle over 10,000 tonnes a year of small domestic appliances such as kettles, toasters, vacuum cleaners, and coffee machines.​

Once operational this new state of the art facility will optimise the recovery of materials from the fridges it processes. In doing so it will maximise their environmental and commercial value and support the development of a more circular economy. ​
