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.
The purpose of composting is to decompose organic substances as efficiently and odourlessly as possible, to convert them into a stable, plant-friendly, high-quality humus product in a controlled rotting process that is as efficient, short and low-emission as possible.
Energy from organic waste: Fermentation is the most economically and ecologically viable treatment method for a range of organic waste. Clean energy is produced from the decomposed organic material and compost and liquid fertiliser from the fermentation residue. But packaging, contaminants and inert waste prevent direct introduction into the fermentation process.
Waste to energy: The use of refuse derived fuel (RDF) is part and parcel of today`s regulated waste disposal. Using a selective treatment process, fractions high in calorific value are separated off from commercial and industrial waste, creating a marketable product. Depending on calorific value, composition and particle size, this fuel is used in industrial fluidised bed firings, in cement kilns and in RDF power plants.
Large amounts of hazardous waste, contaminated waste and dirty laundry are handled in modern hospitals, and so hygiene and staff safety are important. This is why it is important to find sustainable waste solutions which do not require waste to be physically touched. This is achieved with the Envac vacuum system.

Dürr MEGTEC automatic match-speed splicers help manufacturers increase productivity and reduce waste. Dürr MEGTEC delivers a full system from the wrapped roll converted to a web at the right tension and lateral position, along with high splice success rates, fewer web breaks, simple splice preparation, and low maintenance.
Sludge by-products from the metalworking industry have a high potential for recycling. Prolonged grinding processes can generate large amounts of highly valuable, alloy-rich sludge; consisting of metal powder and cooling lubricants. Inside our VacuDry system, the thermal separation of the liquids (hydrocarbons, eventually water) and solids (metal powder) takes place in an oxygen free atmosphere. This absence of oxygen ultimately eliminates material degradation by oxidation, and self-ignition or explosion risks....
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.
How does the Curotto-Can system handle bulky items, such as appliances, in order to meet the "take-all" requirement of residential contracts?. Haulers are sometimes concerned that by using an automated system they cannot meet the “take-all” requirement of residential contracts - this is not so with the Curotto-Can system. The robust arm and lock-sure grabbers of the Curotto-Can enable haulers to load all the typical take-all items including bulky furniture and appliances.
The volume reduction of food scraps is operated for an optimization during the handling and transportation. The two-shaft shredders used for this application allows a reduction in the volume of more than 60% of the initial one.
The contamination of soils as a result of prior chemical production can often be unpredictable and diverse. The majority of such pollutants will require an ex-situ treatment method. Many of our VacuDry units can be used for direct-feeding contaminated soils. To reduce the input amount for thermal treatment, the VacuDry units can also be used in combination with soil-washing plants: In this case, customers only feed the high polluted fractions and screened fines (e.g. below 10 mm), as well as the filter-cake from...
Made of polyethylene raffia fabric (PE) or polypropylene (PP), as well as in jute or non-woven fabric, this kind of containers are used in different industries: from material handling (raw materials food, building construction material, just to name a few). Once finished their life cycle, the big bags are reconditioned and reused or recycled in order to retrieve the polypropylene. The SatrindTech shredders are used in the different phases of the recycling process in order to prepare the material for the further...
A solid solution for solid waste odors. All areas of solid waste handling are, by nature, odorous affairs. Municipal sludge, municipal solid waste, landfills, composting and co-composting facilities all generate odors that can be offensive to workers and the community at large. The process is a complex one, with multiple drops, collections, transfers and sortings of recyclable and non-recyclable material. Combustible materials are then incinerated for energy production.
Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large...
Retailers are increasingly challenged with meeting EHS regulatory compliance obligations and an intense consumer demand for safer, more environmentally-friendly products. Nearly every aspect of a retailer`s business is impacted by EHS compliance, which requires knowledge and expertise that is far from a core skill set possessed by most of a retailer`s workforce. From sourcing products, to distribution and logistics, to employees handling regulated products, to the proper disposal of hazardous waste, a long list...
Mercury-contaminated wastes are a major challenge for many industries including the chlorine industry, oil & gas drilling, oil & gas refineries (catalysts) and fluorescent lamps recycling. Due to strict legal restrictions and HSE requirements, mercury-contaminated waste is required to be handled with special care. We at econ industries have the best solution for each specific mercury waste stream, with plants that are recognised as being state of the art from approval authorities worldwide.
