O.C.O Technology are very pleased to announce the completion of a 5-year agreement which will see us receiving and recycling over 18,000 tonnes of Air Pollution Control residues (APCr) per year from the new Rivenhall Integrated Waste Management Facility being built and operated by Indaver.

Indaver is a leading waste management service provider for industry and local authorities, with facilities and operations in more than 30 locations across Europe including Belgium, Germany, Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Portugal. In total the Indaver Group manages around 5 million tonnes of waste every year.

The agreement will see O.C.O continue our partnership with Indaver following the successful launch of the Aberdeen Ness facility last year. The APCr from Rivenhall will be recycled using our pioneering Accelerated Carbonation Technology (ACT) to turn the waste APCr into a carbon negative aggregate – known as Manufactured LimeStone (M-LS).

O.C.O will manage the APCr at our new Larkshall Mill facility in Wretham which commenced operations at the end of 2023.

The ACT process enables the permanent capture of CO2 and will assist Indaver to meet their zero waste and sustainability goals. 

Karl Sheehan, O.C.O’s Business Development Manager, who has been leading the negotiations, says the agreement marks another major milestone in the growth of O.C.O.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with Indaver who have recognised the huge potential that our technology offers for a none landfill solution for APCr, offering a 100% recycling solution with carbon capture.

“It demonstrates the faith that the waste sector has in O.C.O’s abilities to make a tangible difference to the way APCr is managed and enables us to continue to invest and expand our network of UK facilities.”

John Tatton, General Manager for Indaver Rivenhall, said: “I am really pleased to sign a contract with O.C.O for a sustainable solution for our APCr.  I look forward to working with the O.C.O team whose flexibility and pragmatic approach during contract negotiations leads me to believe we have found a fantastic partner to work with.”

Due for completion in 2026, the Rivenhall Integrated Waste Management Facility in Essex will provide sustainable treatment for up to 595,000 tonnes of residual waste per year and will generate up to 49 megawatts of low carbon energy – enough to power around 60,000 homes.
