SSI builds shredding systems for alternative fuels processing - Waste and Recycling - Recycling Systems

SSI has been designing and manufacturing size reduction systems to prepare solid wastes for thermal treatment or conversion to alternative fuel. SSI has supplied hundreds of systems worldwide for generating energy from many different waste materials—from industrial, municipal, and hazardous wastes to tires, mill waste, wood and other organic materials.


The growing diversity of conversion technologies and feed systems means there is no “one size fits all” system for shredding. With multiple low-speed,high-torque technologies to offer, SSI is able to address each customer’s unique application with systems known for high-performance, low-maintenance, and on-line reliability. From coarse shredding to spec product sizes, SSI offers the broadest line of low-speed, high-torque shredders available for:
