Single stream recycling, otherwise known as dry commingled waste, comprises primarily of paper and cardboard, plastic packaging waste, textiles, cans and, in some cases, glass. The demand for these secondary resources continues to rise compared with that of primary resources.
Optimising output in terms of economic value and against the lowest possible costs per tonne. This is the short-term goal for every Single Stream installation that we provide in cooperation with Bollegraaf. The long-term goal is to ensure permanently low operating costs. The result: fast Return on Investment.
Irrespective of the used collection system and the corresponding task, we design systems that grant 100% efficiency. Various countries have different waste collection systems, resulting in different tasks for the sorting technology. For example, packaging waste mainly consists of plastics, paper and glass. Single-stream waste mainly consists of dry, mixed waste (paper, cardboard, films, plastics, metals, aluminium, and in many cases also glass). Heavy, mixed waste often also contains bulky materials etc. The...
Incinerated municipal solids and other waste streams results in a significant amount of ash residue, which often contains valuable metals. The amount of this remnant being created globally is rapidly increasing due to legislation which prohibits landfilling and creates new incentives for incineration. TOMRA Sorting sensor-based systems allow waste management businesses to capitalize on today’s challenges whilst simultaneously enabling them to look to the future with confidence.
Dismantled ELVs (End of Life Vehicles) are sold to shredder operators and are reduced to fist-size pieces by large rotating hammer mills. The Shredder Light Fraction (SLF) is removed from the stream by suction, the intensity of which determines the amount and composition of the SLF. SLF consists essentially of plastics/rubber (~60%), Glass/sand i.e. mineral substances (~15%), Textiles/leather/wood (~10%), Paint dust/rust (~10%) and Residual metals (~5%). Other names for SLF are ASR (Automobile Shredder Residue)...
SSI Shredders and Reducers are an effective solution for high capacity primary processing of mixed wood for metal liberation and recovery, or bulky item reduction. SSI Shredding Systems has a number of customers processing large wooden items. PRI-MAX reducers are ideal machines to turn mixed, bulky wood waste into “floable” material streams that can be sorted and converted into usable products or energy sources for industry.
The recovery and reclamation of recyclable materials in the waste stream is possible through various selection and separation processes.In the case of materials such as PP, PET, HDPE, plastic, paper, aluminium etc. can be put back into circulation creating new raw materials, the so called “secondary” raw materials, produced not by nature but by man.
This level is expected to reach over 4 million tons by 2010. Companies that specialize in recycling carpet require a fast, reliable and accurate means of identifying the carpet face fiber type entering recycling streams. Collection of plastics for recycling is increasing rapidly. Plastic recycling faces one huge problem, plastic types must not be mixed for recycling. Even a small amount of the wrong type of plastic can ruin the melt. Whether it is a carpet or plastic, classification and identification of recyclable...
One way in which valuables within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. Refuse derived fuel (RDF) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Mega joule per kilogram) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material are cement kilns to power plants.
SSI offers a variety of low-speed, high-torque shredders for size reduction and recycling of solid, bulky waste of nearly all sizes and materials. SSI reducers and shredders are widely used to downsize commingled bulky waste as well as commercial and residential waste streams for volume reduction, to liberate and reclaim recyclables, for composting applications, and to create alternative fuel sources for industry.
Product destruction can be a tricky undertaking. Not only do you have a mixed material stream to manage, but you also need to extract and discard the contents of those materials before they can be recycled. Every operation really does require a custom solution that works best for your demands. From deliquifying bottles and cans, to destroying poor-quality or outdated products, OBC has the experience to help you determine the most efficient and effective process to achieve your goals. Keep your workplace environment...
The recovery of valuable paper fractions from a paper sorting waste stream has been common practice for many years. To ensure that paper sorting process detect different paper grades with greater efficiency, TOMRA Sorting has innovated and further enhanced a unique solution based on optical technology.
Landfills are active environments. Through natural processes of rainfall, condensation, and decomposition, landfills themselves produce a liquid waste stream, called leachate. Often the leachate contains hazardous materials, so properly managing a landfill requires handling the waste. ISCO offers products and services to help manage leachate including HDPE landfill pipe, perforated and slotted pipe as well as custom fabricated fittings.
Mechanical treatment as the foundation for recycling: The reuse of materials and energy from waste is central to modern waste management. The foundation for it is laid by mechanical preparation in the form of waste splitting. In it, recyclables are recovered from the waste stream and high-yield combustibles are separated out for further processing as refusederived fuels (RDF). The remaining residue fraction can be stabilized and then landfilled.
IDRAFLOT flotation units are technological solutions which allow the separation of the suspended solids from wastewater coming from gas scrubber blow down (high concentration of SS) but also for the separation of low density compounds (oil and fats) which can be present in the streams collected by collectors. IDRAFLOT units can be easily installed also within small footprint collection centres.
ANDRITZ gives you access to a comprehensive range of technologies for solid/liquid separation, drying, and automation solutions for chemical processing applications. The systems are specifically designed to achieve product purity and plant safety in the most demanding applications. The chemical and petrochemical industries require durable, safe, and efficient technology solutions which place unique demands on suppliers. Whether the application is for chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, coating pigments,...
Many industries are aware of the opportunities to recover valuable resources from process and bleed streams. This combines creating revenues from waste streams with environmental sustainability. Even low concentrations of dissolved base metals can be economically recovered.
Separation and dewatering of suspensions are important process stages when treating waste and digester output. BELLMER KUFFERATH machines, within an overall waste management concept, divide waste streams into separate streams in an optimal way in waste treatment plants, for which specific treatment methods make sense. Apart from single machines, BELLMER KUFFERATH also supply complete systems for sortation and dewatering of waste streams.
