Due to consistent composition, superior physical properties and wide availability, the Ecofill design and technology can process all types of quarry waste including cohesive silty materials and filter cake.
Sub-economic materials currently being held in stockpiles across the UK are defined as wastes as no market currently exists for them and to date, the ability of quarries to convert these wastes into approved structural fills has been hampered by the lack of technology, flexibility, affordability and sustainable techniques available.
The unrivalled & unique Ecofill process has arrived and is readily available to convert your waste material into high end products which can be used for bound and unbound layers, capping and infiltration layers, and as general fill.
Complimenting your own waste management plan, the Ecofill Materials Management Plan (MMP) forms the backbone of operational control, providing the ability to demonstrate materials suitability for reuse, both in terms of geotechnical performance for earthworks reinstatement and environmental compliance.
Our company mission is simple: Build A Better Future
Increased Revenue & Profitability In The Form Of Saleable Products
Preservation Of Your Land / Void Space
Reduced Quarry Wastes & Quarry Fines Generation
Compliance With Planning Process & Regulations
The Ecofill process provides an on-site, ex-situ technology using state of the art machinery and non-corrosive, bespoke proprietary binders to process all types of waste, including: soils, silts, clays and fines.
These wastes, under our mobile waste treatment licence, can be processed into structural fill materials which are fully tested and accredited by our independent industry partners.
Significant Reduction of Waste & Fines
Increased Operating Efficiency
Additional Product Lines
Improved Standards & Practices
Overburden / Interburden
Due to the environmental, social and economic costs associated with storing and managing aggregates, we understand that excess quarry waste can be a source of friction between aggregates companies, local communities and other stakeholders. Equally, the need to minimise fines is driven in part by the environmental and social consequences of their production and the costs of dealing with increasing volumes.
Many of the potential impacts can be prevented or mitigated by the introduction of the Ecofill technology. Potential impacts of quarry waste can be summarised as:
Quarry waste stockpiles can be a significant visual intrusion
Run-off from quarry waste stockpiles can cause erosion and contaminate local watercourses
Large quarry waste stockpiles can be a source of airborne dust, which can be exacerbated if they are elevated above the original ground level
Reduce aggregates levy & waste taxes
Reduce waste handling, transport and disposal costs
Provide increased land and void space
Offer sustainable use of resources
Improve preservation of the local environment
Reduce risk of breaching consents and prosecution
Improve health and safety for workers by reducing air born dust from stockpiles
Improve company image in the eyes of the shareholders, employees and community
