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.
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.
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...
Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology has been used for years in various industries to separate dissolved solids from water by forcing the water through a semi-permeable membrane. RO is also commonly used to purify drinking water and desalinate seawater to yield potable water. The water and other molecules with lower molecular weight (specific weight of molecules allowed to pass through is dependent on the selected membrane) pass through the micropores in the membrane, yielding a purified water stream called the...
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.
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.
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.

SRF Manufacture is an alternative fuel produced by shredding and dehydrating solid waste, typically consisting of combustible components of solid waste, including paper, card, wood, textiles and plastic. It can be produced to a range of specifications to meet customer requirements.
Solid Recovered Fuel Manufacture
The materials used to produce Solid Recovered Fuel pass through a series of shredders, screens, air classifiers/density separators and magnets.
Inert materials, recyclable plastics and metals are...
We can treat the air streams from waste management plants, MBT (Mechanical Biological Treatment) reception and composting areas, Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP), Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) Plants, gasification of waste, syngas, torrefaction, gas engines and biogas upgrading.
In waste management plants and WWTP, we remove the odors that may be causing a nuisance to neighbors, with bioreactors using Biomass to degrade odorous components and where odors are particularly intractable or VOC emissions higher,...
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.
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.
