Ecomaster - Solid Waste Mixed Sorting Technology
Mixed municipal solid waste include many different components, which may be separated by means of various specific processes, chosen in each case according to the required results.
Primary shredders are used to open the bags containing waste and to reduce its original size. This equipment usually has a low rotation speed in order to avoid pulverizing glass.
In addition to separating metals, the process always includes a screening phase in order to separate the portion containing large components, such as cardboard and light plastic, from the portion having a high content of organic material and inerts.
