Sometimes waste is unavoidable. Our specialists have industry leading knowledge in waste classification, brokering and regulatory compliance. We deliver high efficiency recycling, waste-to-energy and material recovery projects, from initial feasibility, due diligence, performance monitoring and optimisation, though to full design of waste facilities.
Our technical specialists have designed a range of complex processing facilities including industrial scale composting, household waste recycling centres, material recovery facilities and treatment plant, as well as landfill development and permitting.
