How does it work?

Qualification

We review the safety data sheet (SDS) by doing an analysis for calorific value (CV), moisture, and heavy metal content to establish if we can accept the waste at our facility.

Acceptance, quoting, and logistics

Once we have established if we can accept your waste, we develop a disposal solution suitable to your needs, provide you with a quote, and make logistical arrangements with you for the disposal process.

Waste transportation

Our certified Averda vehicle and expertly trained staff arrive at your point of generation to transport your waste to Vlakfontein for processing.

Check-in process

On arrival, our vehicle will go across a weigh-bridge where we will double check all documentation and retrieve a further sample of the waste to ensure that it is in fact the waste that we expected.

Blending platform

Your waste is offloaded in batches into our various mixing tanks where it is processed into a waste-derived fuel using our waste-to-fuel technology, along with other waste generation that compliments your waste.

Waste-derived fuel usage

Once the waste-to-fuel process is complete, the waste-derived fuel is delivered to licensed thermal processes companies, such as cement factories, for usage as a substitute for dirty coal.
