RUNI A/S is a Danish waste compactor manufacturer, located in a region with a long tradition for eco-technology, machine manufacture and metalwork. Our machines are robust and solid machines built from thick plates. They are made to work in harsh environments, 24/7 for many years. RUNI’s screw compactor compact material of all kinds - like packaging foam, pet-bottles, ALU-cans, household waste etc. The machines are used to add value to a large number of different materials, either by making them suitable for recycling and onward sale or by reducing costs of transport, disposal or energy consumption – this is why we say that we turn waste to value.

At RUNI we develop our machines ourselves on the basis of many years’ experience. This development work leads to constantly improving results and new areas of utilisation, and we are proud to say that we are one of the leading waste compactor manufacturers in the world. To us compaction and recycling goes hand in hand and we know that many more “waste” materials can be compacted and/or dewatered in our machines. Please contact us and let us discuss what we can offer you.

From agriculture to waste and recycling
RUNI A/S was set up in 1973 by mechanical engineer Niels Dysager. The product range has developed and changed over the years. In the beginning, the company’s main product was machines for Danish agriculture. Currently, RUNI supplies machines and turnkey solutions for handling of waste and recycling materials. More than 80 % is produced for export. In 2003 the son, Torben Dysager takes over. However Niels continues to work at RUNI till 2013 and thereby this was the end of a long working life with his 40 years anniversary. In 2014 Søren Rossen Bech joins the company as technical director and co-owner of the company.
The ‘omnivorous’ compactor
Since 1996, the main product has been the screw compactor. Over time it has proved to be almost ‘omnivorous’ and we have now supplied more than 2000 screw compactors worldwide for very different purposes.
Built for hard work
Our history cannot be denied. The traces of agricultural machinery are clearly visible in our compactors. They are robust and solid machines made of thick plates. They are built for hard work and created to operate under difficult conditions for many years. They are so simple and user-friendly to operate that anyone can use them – regardless of training.
The Principle Behind the Screw Compactor
The screw is the heart of all RUNI compactors. A basic mechanical principle which is just as obvious as it is efficient. A screw is used to convert the power of rotational movement into horizontal propulsion which because of its moment is able to provide far greater pressure.
The same principle can be found in countless examples in everyday life. We know how the great force used during a screw movement can be transferred to e.g. a bolt, a bench screw or a meat mincer.RUNI’s Robust Screw Compactor
The powerful metal screw in RUNI’s robust compactor crushes and carries the material to the end of the screw where it is rammed together under great pressure and is thereby compacted.
The counter-pressure is provided by the already compacted material held in place by hydraulic jaws which are primarily controlled electronically.
When the machine is set correctly, the screw will continue to press the compacted material out through the jaws as the required compacting level is gradually reached.The Great Advantages of Screw Compacting
- Continuous compacting of material
- High degree of compacting due to high pressure
- Low energy consumption due to the moment of the screw
- No heat added. Instead is used the friction of the materials
Top Quality In All Areas
At RUNI, business has always been based on developing innovative solutions of exceptional quality.
Tough, Reliable Screw Compactors for Hard Work
RUNI’s machines are made for hard work, even in difficult conditions and demanding environments. Therefore they are built with heavy materials, thick plating and solid raw materials. Meticulous assembly by skilled smiths and craftsmen ensures that each machine is a unique, reliable, high-quality product; able to cope with the most arduous work for many years.
Perfectly Customised for the Job
We always enter into a close dialogue with the customer. We want to be absolutely sure that the machine we supply is just the right tool for the job. Over the years we have built up extensive experience in compacting and managing quantities of different materials, meaning that we can do the job where others have to give up. We never sell a machine which does not precisely meet a customer’s requirements.
Simple Performance of Complex Tasks
Although RUNI’s machines are based on a simple mechanical concept – the screw principle – compacting is often a very complex matter. However, we have built all of our experience and know-how into the every machine, and made operation of the machine extremely simple. Anyone, irrespective of educational background, can be trained to operate a RUNI.
Mission and Values
Our Mission: Turn Waste to Value
Values we would like to be known for
- The best solution for the customer
- A product we stand 100% behind
- Leader in the market
RUNI solutions add financial and environmental value for our customers. We aim at win/win solutions. We consider problems from many angles and through dialogue with the customer we ensure that we come up with the very best solutions; solutions which add value to customers’ waste materials, both financially and environmentally.
We benefit from our size. We are flexible and can exploit the important advantage of being able to customise individual products to the specific task. This makes our engineering skills and independent employees crucial in sales, development and production.
Despite our size, we are global players. Our experience and know-how are unique in the world market. Our product is at the leading edge in operation and quality. We are represented by professional and experienced dealers and distributors in all our important export markets.
Turn Waste to Value
Powerful machinery for compaction and drainage of many materials
When working with RUNI you will meet a team with many years of know-how. We seek to create the best energy-efficient and long-term solution, that will make a real difference for your business and the environment.
At RUNI we think long-term, not least when it comes to our relations with our customers. Many RUNI-customers have machines that are 10-15 years old and still running well. Of course, they need maintenance and the occasional spare part, but here we also strive to always offer fast and competent help – also many years after the delivery and installation of the machine.
RUNI’s screw compactors support UN’s sustainable development goals and make a positive difference, that promotes sustainability and the circular economy.
