Following the agreement from the local council, Redditch Crematorium installed two new cremators and associated mercury abatement equipment in 2013.

The heat being recovered as part of this secondary process would normally be dissipated to the atmosphere via the air blast cooler and as a result, could contribute to climate change.

As a result of investigations, it was concluded that the best use for the reuse of this excess energy is to heat the leisure centre, including the swimming pool.

This process of ensuring all available waste heat is used sees flue gases exiting the cremator at circa 800 degrees and, following the recovery process, exiting the stack at around 40 degrees. This way, the gas produced is used to its maximum capacity, leaving little waste behind.
