Governor of Bonaire brings a working visit to Riwald Recycling

Last Saturday, June 19, Riwald Recycling received the Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire, Edison Rijna, on a working visit in Almelo. Under the leadership of Ewald Huzink, Gert Huzink and Bart van Kessel, the Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire and the Mayor of Almelo, Arjen Gerritsen, were shown around the high-tech complex of Riwald Recycling and proudly showed its latest innovations in the field of metal recycling.

''As one of the leading metal recycling companies, Riwald Recycling plays a pivotal role as a supplier in the circular chain of sustainable material use worldwide. Thanks to our experience, our wide range of recycling options and our commitment to environmental, social and corporate governance criteria, Riwald Recycling ranks among the most advanced, respected and trusted recycling companies in the Netherlands and the rest of the world, says Ewald Huzink. ''

We would like to share our vision and knowledge within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, including Bonaire. Bonaire faces significant challenges in the field of (metal) waste processing. Waste processing infrastructure needs to be improved and investments in recycling are a high priority. Due to the urgency and the demand for an even more sustainable waste policy, the Lieutenant Governor of Bonaire, Edison Rijna, visited Riwald Recycling, where Riwald plays an active role in finding solutions to Bonaire's environmental issues. Riwald Recycling links its sustainability strategies to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and integrates innovative technologies for maximum recovery from raw materials. Currently, the first containers with e-waste and scrap are being loaded in Bonaire for transport to the Netherlands, and Riwald Recycling is responsible for the transformation of complex products into pure raw materials with the objective: ''that the Dutch economy would run on recovered raw materials and that no more 'new' raw materials are needed'', says Ewald Huzink.

Riwald Recycling experts in firefighting

Riwald Recycling has been using the PYROsmart system since 2020. The PYROsmart system is an infrared system which can detect fire at an early stage. Where many other systems assume flames or extreme temperatures, the PYROsmart can detect a starting fire. Furthermore, the software works so well that it can effortlessly detect the difference between a fire and the hot parts of a transfer crane, e.g. the engine, exhaust or brakes. The software analyses the heat sources which are warmer than the alarm sets. On the basis of the temperature, movement and spot size, the software determines whether it is a disturbing object, heating, or a (starting) fire. Riwald Recycling uses the PYROsmart detection system in combination with extinguishing guns, which immediately fire when a fire starts. Thanks to these technological innovations, we stay a step forward in the recycling industry.
