O.C.O secures enhanced range of materials for carbon capture
O.C.O has received Permit
variations from the Environment Agency for each of our three operational
aggregate manufacturing facilities in Avonmouth, Leeds and Brandon, Suffolk.
The formal variations now list a much wider range of residual and industrial
materials for processing by our Accelerated Carbonation Technology (ACT),
allowing O.C.O to extend our recycling and carbon capture expertise to new
industrial sectors in the UK.
The rapid growth of the O.C.O
business in the UK has historically been built on treating residues produced by
the Energy from Waste sector. Advances in our research & development
activity have demonstrated the ACT process is very effective at treating the
new materials, which offer new opportunities to recycle waste typically sent to
landfill. These advances are complemented by enhancements to the process
plant infrastructure that allow precise control on mix formulations. Many
of these developments have originated in our overseas projects, which involve a
very wide range of novel materials and exciting opportunities to translate our
world leading expertise into large scale carbon capture projects.
Stephen Roscoe, Technical
Director, believes “this is a significant development for O.C.O in the
UK. It reflects our growth as a carbon capture business and will support
our ambition to process new materials in new markets”.
O.C.O is currently evaluating new materials from the motor, petrochemical, steel and power industries. These materials can either be processed as wastes or utilised as by-products, allowing O.C.O opportunities to further minimise the use of virgin materials in our process.

your residual materials, please contact James Ng, APCr Contracts Manager
