Oricol sponsors plastic waste clean-up in Durban

Oricol helps fund Durban storm clean-up

As a responsible corporate citizen, Oricol Environmental Services is always looking for ways to help keep the environment clean and free of waste.

In the wake of the massive storm which swept through Durban last month, we partnered with the Durban Partnership Against Plastic Pollution (DPaPP) to help fund the clean-up of the plastic waste that had collected in the waterways around the city and had found its way into the uMngeni River.

IWMSA Waste Conference in Port Elizabeth

Oricol to talk alternate fuels at waste conference

Oricol Environmental Services has been included in the list of speakers for the Institute of Waste Management South Africa’s Eastern Cape regional conference.

The Oricol delegation will deliver a presentation on new developments and solutions for diverting waste from landfill, notably, wastes to be used as alternative fuels for cement kilns.

The conference, scheduled to take place on 2 August 2017 at the World of Windows venue at the iconic Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, aims to enhance the local networking efforts in the drive toward waste minimisation.

High calorific waste to be used as alternative fuel for cement kilns

Waste as Alternative Fuel for Cement Kiln

Press Release: InterCement South Africa (also known as NPC) has entered into an agreement with Oricol Environmental Services to co-process liquid and sludge waste in its cement kilns near Port Shepstone in KwaZulu-Natal.

This involves the recovery of energy and minerals from the waste whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions, fossil fuel consumption, raw material consumption and diverting waste from landfill.

“Oricol Environmental Services sees this as an important step in diverting high calorific and liquid sludge wastes from landfill or incineration which can be used as alternative energy source while protecting the environment,” said Richard Sanders, founder and chief executive, Oricol Environmental Services.

The Positive Cup - Coffee Capsule Recycling

Ecollaboration and sustainability targets are transforming how coffee is sourced and produced worldwide and Nespresso is making headway into becoming an industry leader that is looking full circle at its impacts and involving its consumers in its ambitious recycling initiatives; changing coffee culture, one cup at a time. Melissa Baird reports.


Recycled polystyrene for building and construction

Based on the concept of the LIV Village that was founded by Tich and Joan Smith in KwaZulu-Natal in 2001, the new 20,850m² Village of Hope, nearing completion in Kosmos in the North West Province, is being built entirely from a new building and construction method that incorporates recycled polystyrene.

There are over 5-million orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa, mostly due to HIV/AIDS and poverty, with 12,000 added to this every month. Like the LIV village, the Village of Hope will exist to raise the next generation of leaders in South Africa by placing orphaned and vulnerable children into a family environment with a trained foster mother to love them, a school to educate them, and where all their physical needs are met,” says Hennie Snyman of the Mobile Education and Training Trust (METT).
