  • Metal-free waste flows with magnetic separator

    The redesigned High Gradient Separator has been specially developed for the recycling industry; and is particularly suitable for a difficult and dirty work environment. The magnetic value of the coil has been increased to 10,000 Gauss. This allows the magnetically weak Iron and RFS particles to be removed from waste and residual streams as well. In the recycling world, more and more RFS is found ...

  • Separate collection of organic waste from 2015

    The amendment of the German Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Managment Act obliges the German households from 2015 to collect their organic waste in a separate bin. The European member states have to implement the stipulations of the underlying EU revision of the Waste Framework Directive into national law. Domestic waste consists by up to 40 % of organic material. The German Federal Association ...

  • Public supports separate food waste collections, new report reveals

    Trials offering separate collections of food waste to over 94,000 households have shown high levels of public support for diverting food waste from landfill, WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) revealed this week. Following these trials, some local authorities have already decided to roll out these collections on a permanent basis. Consumer surveys conducted by WRAP showed 78 per cent ...

  • Rotary Drum Screen Separates Solids from Waste Streams without Clogging

     A new, compact Rotary Drum Screen from Munson Machinery removes solids from industrial and municipal waste streams, and recovers solid product from process streams, at rates from 600 to 2,790 gal/min (2,270 to 10,560 liter/min) without blinding or clogging the screen, while reducing floor ...

  • Three-stage magnetic separator removes all metals from waste streams

    Goudsmit has recently designed and produced a compact unit that combines a conventional magnetic separator, high-gradient separator and non-ferrous separator. This three-stage separator removes normal iron parts, followed by weakly magnetic metal parts (including a large variety of stainless steels), and finally non-ferrous metal parts. This all takes place over a distance of approximately 7 ...

  • Biowaste separation at Olympic Games in Beijing

    The conference centre at the Beijing Olympic Games will be equipped with a negative pressure transfer tube system for biowaste disposal developed by Puzair. In the system, biowaste travels from the conference centre’s 29 waste-collection points to a centralized waste-collection site. The total length of the network is 1.7 km. Thanks to Puzair's technology, biowaste can be separated from other ...


  • ‘Separate collection’ judicial review update

    Clarification on the definition of ‘separately collected’ in relation to the collection of mixed recyclables looks set to drag on. The original concern by a number of large reprocessors was that the UK interpretation of the European Waste Framework Directive requirements would lead to quality issues that would affect the recyclability of materials collected ‘comingled’. ...
