Protecting our natural resources for a sustainable future.


We are focused on significantly reducing the quantity of waste materials destined for landfill or mine waste facilities across the globe, processing this waste, and returning recycled aggregates back into the market. At RIG we don’t just process waste we also identify future opportunities at a global and local level, build state-of-the-art facilities and carry out advanced research and development in the waste processing sphere.

Redefining Waste: Transforming Today for a Greener Tomorrow.


The global sand crisis presents a significant challenge due to the rapid depletion of sand resources driven by excessive extraction and environmental degradation. The construction, demolition, mining, and marine dredging sectors are major contributors to this issue, as they heavily rely on sand and generate substantial waste, including construction and demolition waste (C&D), trommel fines, and contaminated sediments. Effective waste management strategies are essential to mitigate environmental impacts and promote sustainable resource utilisation.

In the UK, waste markets are strictly regulated by the Environment Agency, which enforces stringent contamination levels for materials imported into treatment facilities and landfills. These regulations have led to a culture of concealment within the industry. Waste from CDEW, trommel fines, and marine dredging is often hazardous and challenging to dispose of, contributing to significant greenhouse gas emissions as it is transported across the UK due to a limited number of landfill sites.

  • The high cost of disposing of non-inert materials and the geographical impracticality of available facilities often lead to illegal waste operations.
  • Regulatory changes are pushing for a circular economy, with upcoming legislation making it illegal to dispose of contaminated marine dredging at sea.
  • Globally, the shortage of sand is critical as it is the most exploited resource after water, with the pace of construction outstripping supply.
  • Construction, Demolition & Excavation Waste (CDEW) constitutes over a third of the EU’s total waste, generating around 450 million tonnes annually.
  • Recycling rates vary significantly worldwide, hindered by differing definitions among EU nations.

RIG addresses these complexities through engineering innovations, including advanced plant design and bioremediation techniques, enhancing the processing of marine dredging waste.


Our Solutions Explained

Sustainable Management of Natural Resources​ 


RIG is setting the standard for processing CDEW, Mining and Marine Dredging waste with the aim to change legislation on processing globally.

Revolutionary Processing of Complex Waste Streams

Our engineers design bespoke mineral processing plants for each waste stream, with a view to optimise front end material recovery, resulting in high quality products, suitable for global infrastructure. 


Our team holds over 100 years of combined experience in the waste, aggregates, plant and logistics industry. 


Our wash plant facilities remove the need for expensive disposal solutions for the most complex of wastes.

Advanced Bioremediation

Our Process uses fungal and bacterial bioremediation techniques to reduce contamination levels in your waste.

The materials are then screened, separating the material into top-end, mid-size and 40mm down material. The top-end and mid-size are then crushed into capping and subbase materials.

The 40mm down material is then processed through our state of the art wash plants, removing contaminants and silts, resulting in quality, recycled aggregates.
