  • Wood waste product

    A landfill needed a way to reduce their waste stream volume, increase the life of their landfill, and recover a recyclable, marketable product. Wood and yard waste material comprise up to 20% of their entire waste stream volume. Processing and recycling this material will extend the life of the landfill by 20 years. They chose WSM's Model 4864BH Horizontal Hogging System with a customized feed ...

  • Valuable Products From Tannery Wastes

    Abstract We proved the viability of enzymatic dechromation technology, proceeding under mild reaction conditions, by the daily capacity of 3 metric tons for processing chrome shavings. The advantage of the enzymatic reaction is producing protein hydrolyzates of relatively good quality and chrome sludge. The quality of both is increased by using organic bases to form an alkaline reaction mixture. ...

The experience with the first months in operation as well as with the quality of the products and the influence ...

  • Food manufacturers: Include waste in final cost of product

    Over the past year, the momentum of food waste reduction has become a forefront concern on a global, national and industry level. In the United States, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched the U.S. Food Waste Challenge “to lead a fundamental shift in how we think about and manage food and food waste in this country.” ...

  • Composite construction products from waste tyres

    The construction industry consumes approximately 420 million tonnes of products per year, and therefore utilises large quantities of raw materials. Alternatives to primary materials in construction products are already widely used; examples include the use of construction and demolition wastes as aggregates, timber wastes in composite board products and by-products from steel-making in the ...
