REDWAVE for Single Stream / Mixed Municipal Solid Waste

redwave5Irrespective of the used collection system and the corresponding task, we design systems that grant the maximum efficiency and flexibility for your plant.

Irrespective of the used collection system and the corresponding task, we design systems that grant 100% efficiency.

Various countries have different waste collection systems, resulting in different tasks for the sorting technology. For example, packaging waste mainly consists of plastics, paper and glass. Single-stream waste mainly consists of dry, mixed waste (paper, cardboard, films, plastics, metals, aluminium, and in many cases also glass). Heavy, mixed waste often also contains bulky materials etc.

The integration of REDWAVE sorting machines into a waste treatment plant grants maximum purity of the sorted fractions.

REDWAVE NIR – for material recognition

REDWAVE C – for colour recognition

REDWAVE XRF – for recognition of chemical composition

REDWAVE For Refuse Derived Fuel

redwave6

REDWAVE ensures that the refused derived fuel has very low chlorine content by ejection the undesired material like PVC parts.

Separation of impurities:

  • Chloride compounds (PVC)
  • Stones
  • Metals
  • Bricks
  • Glass
  • Etc.

Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) are fuels derived mainly from industrial waste, bulky and commercial waste or from sorting residues delivered by recyclable material sorting plants.

REDWAVE Sorting of Wood

REDWAVE ensures the quality of your chipboards by separating plastics, metals and undesired MDF materials.

Remove securely MDF material and plastic contaminations with REDWAVE wood sorter.
