Solid and bulky waste shredder

Shredding bulky waste

The bulky waste shredder is used for volume reduction, to release and recover recyclable materials and to produce alternative fuels (RDF/SRF) for the cement industry.

The low-speed, high-torque shredders are installed at waste management and recycling companies.

Treatment of bulky waste

Benefits of using a bulky waste shredder

Bulky Waste contains many valuable resources that can be liberated and separated from the waste with the proper machine technology.  However, this is only possible if the right shredder is used. 

Bulky Materials are called this because by their very nature, they contain large amounts of co-mingled materials that require an extremely powerful machine to successfully process.  A variety of materials make up this category, so the best units are designed specifically to process any kind of bulky waste. These machines need to be capable of separating valuable recyclables during the shredding process and then collecting them via magnets, air, screens, or by other specialized means.

Before any of this can happen, you must ensure that the machine processing this bulky waste is configured with the right rotor and torque to achieve optimal separation.

Residual waste

In 2019, almost 40 million tonnes of household waste were accumulated in Germany alone. This residential waste is collected and amongst other things sent for mechanical-biological waste treatment at the appropriate plants.

Residual waste
Rubber & tyres

Rubber waste, and scrap tyres in particular, are a major problem worldwide. Every year, around one billion used tyres need to be disposed of, with the lion’s share being dumped in landfill sites. 

Rubber & tyres

Due to their varying material structure, mattresses are difficult to shred and/or recycle. Which is why they are often simply thrown away rather than being put to any further profitable use.
