This page provides a profile of CID Resource Recovery's wood waste processing project.
In 2011 CID Resource Recovery Limited was awarded $370,000 from the Waste Minimisation Fund to create a purpose-built wood-waste processing facility in the Auckland suburb of Onehunga.
CID Resource Recovery used the funding to develop the site, construct a two stage shredding and chipping plant and to commission trials for the new equipment.
The facility, which is now operating, accepts pre-sorted and mixed wood waste which it processes into wood chip. This wood chip is used by Golden Bay Cement as a biofuel. The shredding and chipping plant removes steel components which are sent away to be recycled.
The new facility has the capacity to process in excess of 100 tonnes of wood waste per day. It can therefore divert significant volumes of wood waste away from Auckland landfills.
