During the incineration of our municipal waste which converts waste-to-energy, an ash is produced called Incinerator Bottom Ash (IBA). A unique set of processing companies are able to recycle this ash rather than sending it to landfill. The ash is processed using highly specialist plant into a sustainable aggregate (IBA Aggregate) which can be used in construction as an alternative to primary aggregates. MIBAAA represents the processors of over 2.5m tonnes of IBA each year which would otherwise have gone to landfill, and instead has been processed into over 2.25m tonnes of IBA Aggregate for use within the construction industry as a sustainable aggregate rather than primary resources.
Welcome to Mibaaa
IBA Processing plays a key part in preserving natural resources and reducing the need for quarrying primary aggregates, as well as protecting land by recycling ash which would have otherwise gone to landfill. MIBAAA are proud to represent sustainable processing and high performing recycling operations that are preserving the environment and vital in creating a more circular economy.
WHO WE ARE
The aims of the association are to promote high standards of IBA management, including raw IBA storage, processing, storage of products prior to dispatch and environmental protection through members who have proven professional standards for the sale of IBA Aggregate products.
WHAT WE DO
A Code of Practice has been developed by members of the association in collaboration with specialist consultants and with the knowledge of the Environment Agency, for MIBAAA members use. The Code of Practice ensures that IBA Aggregate is produced to harmonised and UK aggregate specifications and also ensures that our products are supplied to appropriate locations across the UK.
