FVA Group Pty Ltd administers the Fairview Aluminium Cladding Scheme. The scheme aims to divert 100 per cent of end of life cladding products from landfill.
Fairview collects Aluminium Composite Panel (ACP) waste during building rectification work and recycles it using their ‘Ecoloop’ process. Fairview can also resupply the rectification project with Fairview brand cladding.
Following announcements to ban combustible cladding in NSW, Victoria and Queensland on residential apartment buildings, Fairview estimates 4.2 million square metres of cladding across Australia is non-compliant and requires replacement. Fairview offers a recycling solution to manage this waste.
How it works
When facade contractors remove ACP from buildings as part of rectification or demolition works, the panels are collected by a Fairview backload service and delivered to Ecoloop. The ACP is weighed, recorded and separated into four components: aluminium, polyethylene, ferrous metals, and mixed residuals.
The aluminium, polyethylene, ferrous metals are all recycled and given life as a new resource. The mixed residuals, made up of caulking paint, adhesives and other miscellaneous items are converted into waste-to-energy and used as a coal offset.
After the ACP separation process, the aluminium is manufactured into aluminium pucks which are supplied to manufacturing companies as feed stock for aluminium production. The polyethylene is sent to a plastics recycler where it is blended with other plastics and made into items such as concrete bar chairs, plant pots, and commercial drainage systems. The ferrous metals are sold to third parties for recycling and reuse. Lastly, mixed residuals are sent to a re-manufacturer where they are utilised in a waste-to-energy process and used as a coal offset.
