Inashco - Joost Böggemann, VP Business Development
Inashco was founded in the Netherlands in 2008 to offer a unique patented technology developed by the Technical University of Delft for recovering and up-grading ferrous and non-ferrous metals from municipal waste-to-energy ash for sale to global metal markets, while preparing the remaining minerals for beneficial re-use.  Inashco North America was founded in the US in March 2012. The US subsidiary’s head office is located in Annapolis, Maryland. Since its start, Inashco North America successfully started two plants, has one under construction, several projects in permitting, and also founded a 50/50% JV with the US’s second largest waste-to-energy operator/owner Wheelabrator. Inashco is the missing puzzle piece for public acceptance of waste-to-energy and it’s improved economics.
