Waste dewatering for waste management industry

by BELLMER KUFFERATH Machinery GmbH     based in Düren, GERMANY

Separation and dewatering of suspensions are important process stages when treating waste and digester output. BELLMER KUFFERATH machines, within an overall waste management concept, divide waste streams into separate streams in an optimal way in waste treatment plants, for which specific treatment methods make sense. Apart from single machines, BELLMER KUFFERATH also supply complete systems for sortation and dewatering of waste streams.

Waste handling in flight catering kitchens

by Envac AB     based in Stockholm, SWEDEN

Large catering kitchens at airports are operational more or less round the clock. They have to deal with enormous amounts of waste from incoming aircraft, food preparation kitchens and staff canteens. Compared with traditional manual refuse collection methods, an automated kitchen waste system is safer, more efficient, more hygienic – and cheaper in the long run.

Reliable Shredding Technology for Refuse Derived Fuels (RDF)

by UNTHA Shredding Technology     based in Kuchl, AUSTRIA

Our shredding solutions enable you to optimally recycle waste into substitute fuels / alternative fuels and ensure high quality by producing a homogeneous granulate free of foreign objects. The goal of recycling is to use the valuable energy contained in the waste and to substitute the use of fossil fuels. During the recycling process the portions with a high calorific value are separated from the commercial and industrial waste and turned into a marketable product. Depending on the calorific value and the granular size, these fuels are used in fluidised bed combustion, cement plants and substitute fuel power plants.

Metal Sorting - Non Ferrous Metals Sorting

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

Modern sensor-based sorting systems are superior to traditional manual or sink-float processes for reasons including that they achieve material purities of up to 99.9% in refining the sorted fractions. TOMRA Sorting’s efficient sorting and recycling technology provides benefits for shredder machinery and heavy media operators, plus aluminum resmelters. Shredder operators can create individual fractions out of mixed product which yield much higher market values. Heavy media operators can produce and sell pure final products themselves, meaning their investment in technology is recouped quickly. After wet processing, the aluminum product still contains impurities and its concentration can be improved further using TITECH technology and sold for a considerably higher profit. For smelters, the TITECH x-tract [XRT] removes impurities in the secondary resource to such a high degree of precision that less primary resource is needed to obtain useful aluminum.

Waste Sorting - Bulky Waste Sorting

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

TOMRA can help you sort the value out of Bulky waste. Bulky waste can contain a high number of valuable materials but this is not easily accessible within regular waste streams due to its bulkiness. This therefore means that in order to streamline the separation process, the initial treatment step has to involve shredding the input material. In order to prepare sortable fractions, sizing of fractions by screening and the separation of light by heavy compartments is inevitable.

Waste Sorting - Refuse Derived Fuel

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

One way in which values within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Megajoule per kilogramm) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material cement kilns to power plants. TOMRA Sorting technology has long been utilized in many plants across Europe to produce an RDF material from different waste streams according to the specific needs of the end users. The main purpose of this area of work is to ensure that the RDF has very low chlorine content, typically below 0.7% in weight. TOMRA Sortingis able to achieve this by either selecting the ‘good’ material (‘positive sorting’) or by ejecting the ‘bad’ material from the stream, such as small PVC parts (‘negative sorting’).

Waste Sorting - CRT Glass Sorting

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

End of life TV sets and computer monitors require to be recycled to maximise the level of material recovery, and to meet the requirements of the EU WEEE Directive. CRT glass is the largest item by weight. However, because of the 2 different types of glass used in CRT manufacture, the glass fractions have to be sorted to achieve a separation of the 2 type of glass, i.e. panel glass sorted from funnel glass. X-TRACT separator is able to sort the panel glass from the funnel glass. It does it by comparing their different atomic densities, and analysing the data from the X-Rays using a bi-chromatic sensor system. X-TRACT is the first industrial application for any dry mechanical density sorting.

Waste handling for kitchens

by Envac AB     based in Stockholm, SWEDEN

Wherever food is handled, waste is produced. Waste food creates hygiene risks no matter where it is transported or stored, and handling it is a time-consuming, non-profitable process. The Envac system does away with all manual handling and transport, and instead waste food is dealt with and turned into an important environmental resource.

Plastic sorting for the plastics industry

by REDWAVE a division of BT-Wolfgang Binder     based in Gleisdorf, AUSTRIA

REDWAVE is a flexible system with applications in a variety of fields, especially for the plastics industry. No matter how complex the sorting task may be the REDWAVE range of sorting equipment can achieve high levels of purity. REDWAVE guarantees high waste throughput with effective recovery of required materials, achieving maximum return on the separated commodities.

Recycling equipment for shredding electronic scrap (E-scrap)

by Granutech-Saturn Systems     based in Grand Prairie, TEXAS (USA)

Processing electronic scrap (E-Scrap or WEEE) presents special challenges. Computers, consumer electronics, and IT equipment need to be destroyed to extract recyclables or ensure the security and complete destruction of the product. Hard drives, tapes and data storage devices must be completely destroyed to provide data security. And, while many electronic scrap items do not require the specific size reduction that hard drives or other data storage devices require, all electronic scrap includes recoverable materials that can be recycled for future use. As a result, separation and recovery are critical elements of the shredding process for electronic materials.

Pre-sorted Material Sorting

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

TOMRA can help you sort the value out of Pre-sorted material. The input material of pre-sorted plastics will usually contain materials such as bottles and foil. Before recycling, any impurities need to be cleaned out in order to sort out any residue of organic matter, metals, PVC or coloured PET. The material is checked for colour and material. In the bottle-to-bottle procedures highest and consistent quality standards are required.

Waste Sorting - Paper Sorting

Waste Sorting - Organic Waste Sorting

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

The total waste volume contains a high percentage of organic material. This fraction is treated in different ways depending on country. Within the organic fraction, the inert material can cause significant problems during the different treatment processes. For this reason, the inert material content has to be reduced to a minimum in such a way that loses as little organic material as possible.
