Job Position: Managing Director
Our client is a waste management company with expertise in mineral waste, demolition and remediation services, stabilisation and back filling of disused mines, landfill site operation and production of secondary construction material.
The company network consists of over 60 business locations and around 500 employees. In 2012 its network of around 20 construction waste treatment facilities produced approximately 2.3 million tonnes of high quality recycled aggregates.
Additionally the company produces around 1.3 million tonnes of quality assured secondary aggregates from waste incineration slag and ash which is marketed for a number of different applications, for example in road and motorway building and noise protection barriers.
The company is a subsidiary of a large English group which is one of the world’s leading water and environmental service companies with approximately 30,000 employees and 500+ locations in 34 countries.
A sustainable solution to the problem of household waste that cannot be recycled is processing it in an Energy from Waste (EfW) plant. The waste is incinerated to produce energy. A by-product of the process is a form of ash known as Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator (MSWI) bottom ash or Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA). One tonne of waste usually produces about 250 kg of bottom ash.
Slag and ash from waste incineration plants contain metal and other materials which must first be removed. Our client offers reliable concepts to ensure that the maximum possible volumes of incineration residue can be recycled. Its waste management system in the form of a “Slag (IBA) processing/treatment plant” offers a recycling process that begins with the in situ collection and transport of residual mineral materials and continuing with closely monitored processing and production stages ending up with a quality recycled material which can be used in a variety of applications i.e. road construction.
Our client is now extending its worldwide activities by building a “Slag (IBA) processing/treatment plant” on Singapore to assist the authorities in dealing with the recycling of the Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA) residue. The plant will go into operation in April 2015 and will be able to process 600.000 tonnes of ash.
For this reason the company is now looking for an experienced
