Organic Waste Recycling to Land
We specialise in OWRL which translates to the beneficial recycling of organic waste streams resulting from water, food, paper and dredging industries.
This method of recycling provides a valuable source of nitrogen, phosphorus and many trace elements that are proven to improve soil structure as well as reduce the need to apply inorganic fertilisers to agricultural land.
Oran ES conduct extensive land tests, to gauge soil suitability, prior to beneficial recycling taking place. Once shown that the material is suitable for the land in question approval will be sought from the Environment Agency (or SEPA in Scotland). For the operation to go ahead an exemption from the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2007 needs to be achieved. We have a proven track record in this specialist area and maintain an excellent working relationship with the Environment Agency (and SEPA in Scotland). We also have the experience, expertise and infrastructure to treat organic waste streams where necessary, for example dewatering or lime stabilisation.
In 2008, we recycled 100,000 tonnes of organic waste to land in England and Scotland saving our clients significant sums over alternative disposal techniques, such as landfill.
Our Farm Liason Officers (FLO) are trained under the Fertiliser Advisers Certification and Training Scheme (FACTS) to find land suitable for organic waste. Their role also ensures that landowners understand the benefits of organic waste and the rules associated with their use. Once a field and a stockpiling site have been identified, our FLOs ensure that all paperwork including risk assessments and method statements are agreed and that exemptions are made to the relevant body (either EA or SEPA).
OWRL offers a safe, sustainable and environmentally sound solution to recycling organic waste materials.
