    Shredders and crushers for refrigerator recycling

    Erdwich reclaims even Pentane and CFCs with 99% purity! Several million scrap refrigerator units are disposed of every year in Germany alone. The proportion of refrigeration units recycled by volume totals about 40% and is the most significant segment after consumer electronics. One particular challenge in this recycling process is presented by chlorofluorocarbons such as R 11, R 12 or R 141b, which were used for decades as foaming agents for insulation materials. Since these substances damage the Earth’s ozone layer when released, they must be removed and collected securely in a closed-system pre-processing plant. The fact that pre-processing of legacy refrigeration units always needs to be carried out in accordance with the latest technological standards means that plant operators gain a decisive advantage when working with an innovative and experienced plant manufacturer.

  • Waste management for dangerous wastes

    A wide variety of wastes are too hazardous to be disposed of by traditional means. Hospitals, clinics, laboratories, nursing homes, funeral homes, dental offices and veterinary clinics are just some examples of places that produce potentially dangerous bioactive waste, often referred to as biomedical waste. Proper disposal of biomedical waste is a complex process that must be carefully controlled to avoid serious public health risks. The waste must be placed in special bags, stored separately, transported in refrigerated trucks and carefully disposed of to eliminate potential exposure. In many cases, the waste must be autoclaved before it is land filled. This complex process results in exceedingly high costs for the disposal and treatment of biomedical waste.
