An investment supported by Norway Grants was implemented, in which ferrous materials are recovered from bottom ash of the hazardous waste incineration plant of ÉMK Kft. (EMK North-Hungarian Environmental Protection Limited Liability Company) in SVIP Sajóbábony Industrial Park, Hungary, in order to decrease the amount of generated waste.

EMK Ltd.’s core activities are waste management and waste water management services. The enterprise carries out collection, transportation, pre-treatment and disposal of hazardous waste. During the incineration of hazardous waste, 2-30 % of bottom ash is generated depending on the type of the incinerated waste. This amount must be landfilled. However, in the bottom ash significant amount of recyclable ferrous metals can be found. The aim of the project launched in 2014 was to elaborate and accomplish recovery technology of the up-to-now non-utilized ferrous metal fraction of the bottom ash at EMK Ltd. With the help of the introduced technology less amount of bottom ash is disposed to the landfill of EMK Ltd., therefore, its lifespan is lengthened while the environmental impact is decreased.

Under the frame of this project new waste/hazardous waste separation technology has been installed at the EMK Ltd.

Due to the building, the new equipment and the air extraction system, safer and green work environment has been created for the operational staff of bottom ash treatment.

Measuring the indicators of this project will be possible from the end of first year of maintenance period.
