Waste shredding for municipal waste plants - Waste and Recycling - Municipal Waste

There are valuable resources in waste that have to be extracted. Being specialists in the processing of waste of all kinds – first and foremost in the area of refuse derived fuels – we constantly work on the advancement of our solutions for customer-oriented and cost-effective shredding.

Whether single machines for shredding waste or synchronized packages assembled into compact processing lines … our know-how is in every single technical detail that we provide to our discerning customers.


  • Domestic and bulky waste
  • Commercial and industrial waste
  • Mixed construction site waste

RDF is a fuel that is normally produced from waste with high calorific value. The original waste comes from households, industry and commerce and is processed for energy extraction; it is meant for co-incineration plants and replaces standard fuels (e.g. coal) in production plants for cement, power plants or other co-incineration plants.

In order to produce refuse derived fuels with defined qualities and guaranteed specifications, multi-level processing is required that mainly includes the following stages:

  1. Primary shredding
  2. Separation of extraneous material (by e.g. air-steam or ballistic separators)
  3. Secondary shredding
  4. Finalization (e.g. through screen basket)

Processing of RDF usually takes place in the following RDF value categories:

  • low calorific RDF
  • average calorific RDF
  • high calorific RDF

Lindner shredders and the RDF compact systems demonstrate their high performance particularly in the processing of refuse derived fuels, achieving peak economic and ecological values.
