ReCycled Refuse’s patented eco-friendly thermal hydrolysis technology uses steam within an autoclave to thermally treat unsorted municipal, light industrial, commercial, hospital and agricultural waste and sewage.
The process reduces the size of the raw waste by up to 85% of its original volume and is the core to a renewable energy generating system. The system is self-perpetuating as the biomass fibre is used to drive waste heat boilers producing process steam, together with a significant surplus, passed through steam turbines, to generate green electricity. The company also provides sustainable energy consulting to engineers in the energy, waste and power industries through the RCR Sustainable Energy Team; engineering services of environmental and energy systems through the Engineering Team, and value added construction services worldwide through the RCR Construction Services Team. The company provides solutions for various municipalities globally. ReCycled Refuse’s Chairman is Dr Anthony Hayden-Taylor.
