Recovering and recycling the waste we generate conserves our precious natural resources, reduces environmental impact and supports the development of a more circular economy. Enva converts as much waste as possible into new materials, products and energy sources, diverting it from landfill and helping our customers realise both commercial and environmental benefits.
We strive to provide closed-loop recycling solutions whereby waste materials are separated and recovered as secondary resources or used in the manufacture of new products. Where this is not possible, they are used as a fuel in the production of sustainable energy.
Whether it’s producing recycled glass cullet for new bottles, aggregates for the construction industry or energy from waste oil, very little of what we collect is sent to landfill. Our continual investment in research and development allows us to recover even more waste materials from a host of consumer, commercial and industrial sources. We don’t simply collect waste - we transform it.
Enva manages a significant volume of plastic and WEEE, from small household electrical appliances to larger items such as fridges. Much of this material is then further processed to produce a range of recycled plastic compounds suitable for extrusion or injection moulding.
The waste wood we collect is inspected, segregated and then manufactured into a range of award-winning products which includes animal bedding, feedstock for panel board and high quality fuel for the biomass industry in both the UK and Europe.
Waste oil is tested, treated and processed at our licenced facilities. We produce used lubricating oil (ULO) for re-refining back into base lubricants, supporting the circular economy. We also produce processed fuel oil (PFO) for use as a high quality fuel in the asphalt industry, industrial driers, power stations, large boilers and furnaces and as a low sulphur alternative for bunkering oil in ships.
Glass is the perfect circular economy material as it is 100% and endlessly recyclable. Enva processes up to 100,000 tonnes of cullet per annum for the glass manufacturing industry.
Enva recycles and supplies aggregate products for a variety of applications such as site restoration and road building.
Enva offers a green waste and food derived compost produced in an in-vessel composting (IVC) system with an additional maturation stage. The finished product is a high-quality compost that meets British Standards specification of BSI PAS100.
Using recycled fibre in the manufacture of paper and cardboard conserves energy and helps reduce pollution. Recycled paper and cardboard is supplied to either paper mills or packaging manufacturers.
Recycling scrap metal is sustainable, diverting valuable material from landfill. Both ferrous and non-ferrous metals are recyclable.
