World's first Ash2Salt plant opens soon
Ragn-Sells is currently putting the finishing touches on the world's first facility for the recovery of valuable raw materials from fly ash on a large scale. When the plant is operational at the end of the year, it will be able to process up to 150,000 tonnes of fly ash each year. That corresponds to roughly half of all fly ash produced in Sweden.
– I am both proud and a little nervous right now. The installations are almost complete, the ash supply looks good, and we have come a long way in terms of selling the salts we produce. The recruitment of staff has also been successful, and we have received a good mix of experience and ages, says Mikael Hedström, CEO of Ragn-Sells Treatment & Detox.
The start of operation has been slightly delayed because the installation has taken longer than expected. The work is now in its final stages and the facility are expected to start at the end of the year.
– Of course, it is frustrating when there are delays. In a perfect world, you want everything to go according to plan, but the troubled world situation has delayed deliveries of certain types of material, says Mikael Hedström.
