LifeCycle works by shredding the wet products to break them down into their component parts and then compressing them to remove the liquid. Any foreign objects are removed and we then chemically treat the waste so that it maintains a stable structure when we make bales of it to be used as RDF. Our process has a worldwide patent.
Most of our business customers are genuinely concerned that they minimise their impact on the environment. Lifecycle will benefit all our hygiene waste customers. Converting the hygiene waste products into a highly efficient fuel in the form of RDF, instead of sending them to landfill, helps our customers to achieve their environmental targets.
LifeCycle also makes financial sense.
Customers sending hygiene waste products to landfill, face increasingly high costs because of the need to hit the UK’s environmental targets.
LifeCycle means that we can divert from landfill
Waste products can be diverted away from landfill and process them in a more economically efficient way.
If you’re a phs hygiene waste customer, we’ll be processing your hygiene waste products at our LifeCycle plant this year. Since November 2016, we’ve began to process the waste from our customers in Wales and England into RDF and we’ll be increasing the amount we recycle as we ramp up our capability through 2017.
