- Recycling Plants for Electrical and Electronic Scrap



For each type of electrical and electronic waste ANDRITZ Recycling offers individually tailor-made plant solutions, which meet all requirements of the European WEEE Directive. With the Universal Cross-Flow Shredder QZ, ANDRITZ Recycling has developed a particularly effective and environmentally friendly technology, which has led the way throughout Europe, for recovering the recyclable materials and separating out the hazardous substances.

All types of e-scrap can be treated in ANDRITZ MeWa recycling plants.
  • Household equipment
  • Computers
  • Copiers
  • Washing machines
  • Dryers
  • Consumer electronics
  • Small appliances

Key equipment Universal Cross-flow shredder QZ
  • Printed circuit boards
  • Transformers
  • Capacitors
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Stainless steel
  • Plastics

Output fractions after e-scrap treatment
  • QZ with accelerating tools for breaking the material bounds, based on the different material properties
  • Wide range of possible input materials
  • Most of the circuit boards remain intact and available to be sold to a metal foundry
  • Size and form determined by the operating parameters of the QZ
  • Faster and more efficient sorting of the valuable materials and contaminants
  • Materials remain in coarse pieces, mostly separated from each other
  • Easy to sort out valuable ferrous and non-ferrous fractions like motors, transformers, Fe/Cu compounds, copper, aluminum, cables, plastics
  • Less wear and tear and higher availability of the following equipment due to early removal of disturbing and coarse parts
  • Massive parts can also be processed without causing damages to the accelerating tools
  • No release of harmful substances because of gentle dismantling of batteries and capacitors

Key components: Universal Granulator UG

  • High purity degree of output fractions through further destruction of remaining material bounds
  • Homogenized distribution of output size and form
  • Customized grain-size, end products adapted to market demand
  • High efficiency of the separation technique when granulated material is processed, higher recovery rate of valuable resources
  • In-house integrated recycling solution from A to Z for gaining best value from input material
  • High capacity because of higher quality and less quantity of material flow to the granulation step after QZ treatment
