The Enval Plant

Enval can design and manufacture plants according to our clients’ individual requirements. As a modular process, the plant can be economically operated at a variety of scales, allowing for local treatment.

How it works

A typical Enval plant operates at a feed rate of up to 350 kg per hour, which equates to a nominal capacity of 2,000 tonnes per year, and will pay for itself within three to four years. The high efficiency and minimal emissions associated with the process mean that the plant requires minimum planning and environmental permitting.

Enval can handle assembly, installation and commissioning. Our turnkey solution includes full training to operate and maintain the equipment. Maintenance and engineering support is provided throughout the lifetime of the plant. Where required, we can also assist in identifying long‑term outlets for the aluminium and hydrocarbons generated.
