Shredding commercial and industrial (C&I) waste

Commercial and Industrial Wastes are typically collected separately based on the variety of different materials referred to as C&I waste, but it contains extremely valuable components that can be liberated and separated to produce raw materials that can be re-introduced into their respective manufacturing processes or can be processed into high BTU substitute fuels. 

The ability to customize the configuration of the UNTHA XR Shredders provides you with the most efficient and flexible machine to successfully process this waste stream.  Whether you need a primary, secondary, or tertiary shredder, the XR can be built to give you the best processing options.

COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE SHREDDING

characteristics & challenges

Many commercial and industrial companies accumulate various types of waste during the production process:

  • Paper and wood

  • Metal and plastics

  • Glass and films

  • Biogenic waste

Many of these waste streams have governmental rules regulating the collection and processing methods that can be used.  There are also programs being introduced to help increase the recycling rates on these particular types of waste. 

The ability of the UNTHA XR Series of Shredders to be configured to process specific waste streams, and its ability to produce a specific size end product makes this the perfect solution for this waste category. 

Regardless of the make-up and moisture content, the XR can be configured to process any specific waste stream down to the required particle size for reintroduction into a production process or to produce a specific sized end-product for use as an alternative fuel.  This versatility can turn an otherwise un-recyclable waste stream into an extremely valuable alternative!

  • Waste shredded to < 6" (< 150 mm) is suitable for co-generation power plants with a standard solid fuel grate fired furnace design, for Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) fired plants, for material recovery facilities (MRF), and for mechanical biological treatment. Untreated commercial residential waste achieves an approximate calorific value of 3,870-4,730 BTU/lb. (9 – 11 MJ/kg.).

  • Substitute fuel sized to < 3" (<80 mm) is mainly used for co-incineration in the calciner end of the kiln in cement plants, for fluidized bed combustion, and for energy recovery in power plants. The calorific value of this sized fuel is determined to be approximately 6,450-7,740 BTU/lb. (15 - 18 MJ/kg.).

  • For injection furnaces in cement works and in substitute fuel plants, on the other hand, a substitute fuel size of less than 1-1/4" (30 mm) is ideal. The secondary fuels in the mixture for co-incineration in cement rotary kilns must have a calorific value of at least 7,740-9,460 BTU/lb. (18 - 22 MJ/kg.).

The XR Series’ versatility and ability to be configured to a specific shredding job makes it the perfect solution to satisfy a variety of alternative fuel markets.  Whether you need it as a primary, secondary, or tertiary shredder, we can configure your XR to process your waste stream to meet even the most strict fuel specifications.
