Collection, Treatment and Recycling of Waste Panels for the Construction and Demolition Industry

eSynergy collect, treat and recycle all kinds of foam insulation panels. This includes panels removed from buildings and from cold room installations (food, pharmaceuticals and data rooms) and refrigerated display equipment.

We offer a low cost treatment and recycling service that provides you with all the paperwork you need to be legally compliant. Our ‘Best Available Technology’ uses an innovative system for safely removing and disposing of all hazardous substances contained within panels.

HOW WE PROCESS INSULATION PANELS

Step-by-Step

1

Pre-Shredding

Large commercial fridge units are lowered into an encapsulated shredding chamber subject to process gas monitoring, inertisation by gaseous nitrogen and activated carbon abatement of solvent blowing agents.

2

Secondary Shredding

The pre shred material is delivered to an encapsulated cross-flow shredder subject to process gas monitoring and cryogenic condensation of solvent blowing agents. Any ODS, high GWP and flammable gases are liberated and captured during this stage.

3

Air Classification

Metal and plastic fractions are separated by density then transported via a series of screw conveyors for bagging. The suction cleans the materials of any remaining dust residue.

4

Magnetic Separation

A overband magnet separates ferrous from non-ferrous metals. An eddy current system then classifies the non-ferrous metals.

5

Thermal Decomposition of Residues

A pyrolysis system thermally converts the non-recyclable insulation foam residues into heat and power.

6

Materials Export

Plastics and metals are sorted into separate containers and shipped off for reprocessing into new products.
