Waste Recycling Plant

Your recycling building designed for strength, durability, longevity and sustainability

Are you looking for a cost-efficient building, with adequate geometry, and insulation & ventilation perfectly suited for your waste recycling plant?

The reduction, recycling, and reuse of waste are essential for the sustainable management of resources.

Recycling, especially waste-to-energy, is a growing business that is becoming increasingly important. The demand for recycling buildings has increased dramatically over the last decade with more businesses getting involved in the circularity of their products and process. The regulations regarding waste management and recycling have driven this demand.

Our team will work closely with you to identify and  design your recycling buildings to your requirements with flexible and efficient solutions to get your facility up and running quickly with a tight budget.

>>  A recycling center customizable to your needs

With new environmental policies in place, the need for recycling buildings, waste management centres, biomass buildings and renewable energy buildings is increasing. Not only does the way in which material is recycled play a role, but the recycling buildings in which the work takes place must also meet standard regulations.

Astron is the specialist in the design and construction of storage halls for the recycling sector. Our know-how: consulting, design, engineering and construction

What are the objectives for your waste recycling plant?

>> Improve recycling efficiency

Your building can be designed and protected against damp, humid and corrosive environments, which are often generated within recycling buildings. If needed, to reduce the level of dust and noise created within recycling facilities, specific systems can also be integrated into your building.

It is also possible to integrate building and process equipment considering technical mezzanines, conveyors,overhead cranes.

Our team will focus on analyzing your required building features, systems and equipment in order to achieve the essential functions at the lowest life cycle cost consistent with the required performance, quality, reliability, and safety.

>> A quick, flexible way to create secure waste management

Our building solutions provide robust shelter from all weather conditions and can prevent ecologically harmful substances from leaking into the environment, whilst meeting industry requirements for structural process safety.

With no interior columns, you'll have the entire space to run your operation smoothly and efficiently and design a floor plan and layout that works best for your business.

>> Maximum useable space: large free span without intermediate columns

Benefit from a clear span open space where nothing gets in the way of your operation. With our construction process, we can realize clear spans of up to 100 meters. For example, trucks and front loaders will easily be able to move in and out of your recycling building.

With our large bays you have the possibility of integrating all kinds of large doors for optimum and safe traffic.

A large clear span and a building with a high ceiling, coupled with unlimited building length: get the ideal building for your recycling operations, storage sites, waste-management centres, waste incineration plants, etc.

>> Compliant with environmental regulations

Built-to-purpose for the waste and recycling industry, according to your process, equipment and technology with full regulatory compliance.

The recycling center can be part of an overall policy to control environmental impacts. For example, the installation of a photovoltaic roof can be planned. Your building can be energy autonomous, i.e. produce as much electricity as it consumes, or even produce positive energy.

Sustainable construction can reduce energy costs and raw material utilization, which reduces the total building operating cost.

>> Total Cost of Ownership: Control the overall cost of your facility

Once you have selected the building dimensions, frame type, wall, roof systems and accessories, the building cost is fixed and will stay the same over the project timeline. So you can rely on these figures and take care of other financial aspects of your project.

Furthermore, the optimised building design and layout will reduce your operational costs during the lifetime of your project.

    A fast and efficient process

    # Single source supply
    Astron helps you to turn your ideas into reality – within a fixed timeframe and a fixed budget. We use a system approach and pre-engineered products that perfectly fit together. Usually it takes 10 – 12 weeks for the complete design and production of your building. Construction is carried out by certified erectors in 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project.
    One single contact person handles the process from the beginning to the very end, taking care of all the details and bearing the full responsibility until the finalization of the building.

    # Building smart
    A smart approach to all building components adds up to better quality and durability. Our building systems are engineered precisely to the specifications for a higher-quality building and better building performance.

    # Innovative approach
    Starting from a blank page, we have the ability to configure the building to best suit your needs. From the planning stage onwards, through production to the final assembly, all our employees are fully committed to customer satisfaction.

    # Concept of the large span
    For many years, Astron has built its reputation on free spans, without intermediate columns, from 10 to 100 m. Unobstructed, column-free spaces greater up to 100 metres are required for a variety of usages. These include activities where flexibility is key, where visibility is important, such as some manufacturing facilities, and where large movable objects are housed, such as aircraft hangars.

Energy saving from design to operation

# From A to Z
At Astron we strive to meet all your construction needs with attention to sustainability, providing a simplified and more environmentally friendly way to complete your construction project in every aspect of our business. Astron was one of the first players on the market to provide economical solutions for a «nearly zero-energy building» NZEB for industrial applications.

# Steel promotes sustainability
Because steel building systems start with recycled steel today and can be recycled at the end of their useful lives, systems construction outperforms all other forms of construction for life cycle analysis and least material impact on the environment.

# Certified approach
Astron is assessed by EcoVadis, an international network in the field of sustainability. The assessment focuses on global supply chains, i.e. networks of relationships between production, distribution and procurement. As an example, our optimised use of raw materials and the high recycling rate were rated very positively. The energy optimisation of the Astron buildings and the support of LEED and BREAM certificates were also honoured accordingly. The result is an energy-efficient building that is completed faster, with the highest quality and lowest risks.
