How Matthews’ innovative incineration technology has opened up the world.
It could have been seen as a serious obstacle, but for Matthews Environmental Solutions the IED Industrial Emissions Directive has opened the door to unprecedented international success. The legislation at first appeared to hamper the sale of smaller scale incineration technology, but after confirming that some aspects of waste incineration; including wood, chipboard and animal remains are in fact exempt from the regulations, Matthews has gone from strength to strength.
The EU regulations are structured to prevent harmful greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, but by incorporating advanced incineration technology features into their Surefire range of waste incinerators, disposing of raw timber is not only legally compliant, but it is saving a fortune for customers who were previously forced to pay exorbitant removal charges. With animal cremation, says Matthews, the bulk of it is water, and therefore emissions are not considered to be harmful when disposing of small amounts of waste.
The other valuable factor that is proving to be so attractive to customers all around the world is that the heat produced by the incineration technology can be recovered and re-used for space heating, hot water or for process heating … all at zero cost.
One customer based in London for instance has confirmed that their Matthews’ Surefire wood incineration technology immediately saved them upwards of £12,000 per year on disposal costs. Not only that, says the firm, but in addition to making an environmental difference they are now also benefiting from free heat.
Today Matthews’ business is around 80 percent export with their incineration technology in demand across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Far East. Surefire incinerators have also been specified for the British Antarctic Survey’s Halley 6 base, where in the world’s most protected environment it is used to dispose of sewage in temperatures that can plunge to minus 50 Centigrade.
The company’s bespoke incineration technology has also been commissioned by the British Army for use in temporary military camps located within war zones.
Far from fearing stricter controls with environmental legislation Matthews has embraced the challenge and has profited from it.
