As operations continue to expand to more and more remote locations, the need for a safe, effective and compliant waste disposal solution for mining companies is clear. At Inciner8, our range of incinerators are perfectly suited to mining waste.
In recent years, mining operations have been spreading around the world, with attention turning to a wide range of raw materials – including cobalt, uranium and titanium. But as mining has increased, so too have the regulations around it.
To comply with strict guidelines like the EU’s Directive 2006/21/EC, companies need to have a strong waste management plan in place that "ensures short and long-term safe disposal of the extractive waste".
Typical waste generated from mining and exploration sites is usually considered as MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) - which comprises typically of food waste, wood, plastics, cardboard and paper. All of which are safe to incinerate (see "What you can/cannot incinerate?").
