The amendment of the German Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Managment Act obliges the German households from 2015 to collect their organic waste in a separate bin. The European member states have to implement the stipulations of the underlying EU revision of the Waste Framework Directive into national law.
Domestic waste consists by up to 40 % of organic material. The German Federal Association of the German Waste Management Industry (BDE) expects a volume of approx. 12 mio. tons organic waste per year. Throughout Europe, BDE expects approx. 150 mio. tons of organic material to accumulate annually. A challenging situation for communities, cities and councils with regard to planning and investment strategies. No matter how the organic waste will be collected and treated, it is at any rate inevitable to separate these materials completely from residual waste and other material fractions. The CRACK-O-MAT Bag Opener is expert for opening and emptying of small bags filled with organic waste. This unique machine opens and empties the waste bags by virtually 100%. In contrast to using a shredder, the pieces of foil or packagings remain quite large so that they can easily be distinguished from the organic waste. A rotor screen can separate these materials reliably from the organic material. CRACK-O-MAT is also attractive from the economic point of view. Purchase and operating of the BRT machine is much less costly than using a shredder. CRACK-O-MAT helps you to enhance the long-term value and profitability of your waste treatment plant.
