Completion of Equipment Installation

14th August 2020

The final piece of plant equipment – the plasma converter tap hole drill – was installed this week. Construction will be completed in the next few weeks once the remaining control wiring is tested. ABSL is now focused on commissioning the system and bringing it into operation.

The tap hole drill is used to drill a hole in the plasma converter to release melted ash from the waste feedstock in to the slag pot shown in the picture. The ash will then cool to form an inert vitrified material that can be used as an aggregate.
