OREX - Organic Press Cleaning System
The innovative separation and cleaning system radically improves the quality of bio-waste stemming from Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and separate bio-waste collection. Through this eco-innovative process, bio-waste can be effectively recycled and used in anaerobic digestion to create biogas instead of losing valuable organic material through incineration or landfilling.
The proposed technical solution consists of two innovative technologies working in an integrated system that firstly separates incoming MSW (or other potentially polluted organic waste) with a high-pressure hydraulic press, the OREX, into a biogenic fraction and a dry non-organic fraction with a very high efficiency.
In the next steps, the biogenic fraction is further cleaned in a cleaning system and a sink tank leaving only 0.5-2% of impurities and providing for the absence of damaging parts in the organic material. This represents an almost revolutionary 30% efficiency improvement in terms of separation and purification resulting in high-added value organic material.
The dry fraction undergoes an additional separation process with mainly RDF and recyclables as a result.
