The rising success of the plastics recycling sector has turned an environmental hazard – plastic waste – into a valuable resource. The constantly growing industry comes with increasing demands in terms of technology and quality, but also offers enormous potential for those who are ready to strike new paths. ANDRITZ has combined the latest shredder technology from its recently launched ADuro product line with an all-in-one solution for separating, washing and dewatering – the CENSOR ACZ decanter centrifuge. This powerful pair is perfect for processing various types of plastic waste, especially from household waste collection.

Hungarian municipal solid wastes (MSW) management has developed tremendously over the past 15 years. More than 3,000 landfills and dumps had been closed, just to mention one improvement. However, still, lots of work is necessary to accomplish the EU’s ambitious aim of decreasing landfilling and increasing recycling and composting.

Tracer Based Sorting is an innovative approach for waste Management enabling material or product sorting regardless of their physical properties. The technology is based on applying inorganic marker substances in ppm concentrations in or on the objects to be sorted. These substances can later be detected in the recycling process, serving either to remove contaminants or to recover valuable materials from the waste stream. Five German companies along with two universities and one associated networking partner are working on the pilot development of Tracer Based Sorting for plastic packaging recycling in a collaborative research Project.

Simply for its sheer size, the American waste management market is a worthwhile target for export-oriented manufacturers and know-how providers.

Ways for increased material recycling of material flows from MBT
© Wasteconsult International (5/2017)
By implementing modern thermal and non-thermal waste treatment technologies, waste management hast made a big leap forward. In the last two decades, Central Europe has been the motor of the development. The first decade of this century has been a period of development and installation of new processes in numerous locations. This was followed by nearly a decade of minor progress. This article will analyse the current situation and show how higher recycling rates even from mixed and residual waste can be achieved.
