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)...
The growing demand for high-value secondary materials renders high quality recycling increasingly attractive. Thousands of tons of recyclable materials from construction and demolition (C&D) activities are sent to landfill every day, resulting in increasingly higher costs - and lost profit.
Waste-to-energy through incineration of waste is an effective way of producing electricity and heat, at the same time getting rid of the possibly hazardous or unrecyclable waste. The waste can be incinerated at specific WtE plants or at plants with permission for co-incineration of waste at biomass boilers or cement kilns. The waste incineration plants are, however, governed by strict emissions regulations.
Mercury is widely used in chemical industry, electronic s, electric engineering, instrument making, medicine, pesticide and explosives production, etc. A number of techniques and equipment are developed for reclaiming mercury-containing waste, such as soil, sludge, stillage botto ms, slime sediments, fluorescent lamps, mercury-containing batteries.

HSM has many important and longstanding relationships with many global leading waste management and recycling businesses, supplying balers around the world. We share their visions and understanding of their operational needs.
Abattoir & Slaughterhouse waste is a potential incubator of bacterial, viral, prion and parasitic pathogens, capable of infecting both animals and humans. A quick, cost effective and safe disposal method is essential in order to reduce the risk of disease following animal slaughter.
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the marine industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets such as engines, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, generators and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.
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.
PET and other rigid plastics are usually made from either PET, high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) or polystyrene (PS) – the hard, not expanded type. Recovered items such as bottles, pots and containers can all be baled sold on to recycling companies. If you’re unsure which type of plastic waste your business generates, we can help you identify it and recommend the best solution for your needs. HSM provides balers for use with plastics in many different scenarios from small volumes,...
Optimizing output in terms of economic value against the lowest possible costs per tonne. This is the short-term goal for every installation that Bollegraaf provides. The long-term goal is to ensure permanently low operatingcosts and achieve an optimal return on investment.
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.

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...
Our organic waste shredders process biological and biogenic waste to generate an optimal substrate for further utilisation in your biogas plant or in your disposal business. The application area ranges from green or garden waste to food waste and expired goods including packaging to slaughterhouse waste. Non-homogeneous or organic waste in pieces including packaging must be shredded to prepare it optimally for fermentation. Our low-speed organic waste shredders are ideally suited for this application. These...
Parts cleaning in the automotive industry; In view of the growing variety, shorter delivery times and continuously rising output volumes, short cycle times ensure both manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive industry remain competitive on the international market while safeguarding high parts quality and manufacturing precision at the same time.
