Fire Safety Solutions for Waste and Recycling Management

Fire Safety Solutions for
Waste and Recycling Management

Recycling and waste management facilities are prone to fire hazards due to the presence of combustible materials, heavy machinery, and the continuous processing of various waste types. Fires in these environments can lead to devastating consequences, including loss of property, environmental damage, and potential injuries.

Blazequel fire safety solutions aim to mitigate these risks through a comprehensive approach that encompasses prevention, detection, and response.

case studies

Explore our featured case studies to discover how we’ve revolutionized fire safety across various industries. From cutting-edge detection systems to emergency response strategies, each project highlights BlazeQuel’s commitment to excellence and creating safer environments.

AMGEN CYMRU

Blazequel designed, installed and commissioned a range of fire detection and control systems for all risk areas of this facility.

FORTRESS RECYCLING

This project involved the design, installation and commissioning of a fire protection system for a new-build MRF, processing DMR / C&I waste streams.

WKE

This project involved a full fire protection fit out for a new-build SRF Pelleting Plant. WKE take solid recovered fuel (SRF) and process it through their state-of-the-art facility to produce SIRF Pellets – which are an alternative to traditional fuels for the cement, power, steel and brick industries.

Typical Hazards:

Lithium-Ion Battery Fire Risks

Recycling facilities are at a greater risk than ever from fires, with the influx of lithium-ion batteries from portable electronics to EV’s, and everything in between. These fires can erupt with little warning from almost anywhere around your facility – from the tipping floor, to the process lines, and storage bunkers under your MRF!

About Blazequel

At Blazequel, we’ve been working with recycling facilities for over 10 years.  We’ve made it our business to understand your processes and risks.  Each facility has a different risk profile, which may require a different fire safety approach based on materials, process type and budget. We provide solutions for all risk areas, from WTS facilities and tipping halls to MRF’s.  No two systems are the same.  Oftentimes, the ideal solution is a combination of multiple fire protection technologies.
