Our Waste Processors

Waste Processor

Utilising our waste processor technology we can transform non-recyclable waste streams into uniform solid fuel which can then be processed in our advanced thermal treatment systems to generate sustainable renewable energy.

Our Waste Processors achieve 100% sterilisation, up to 70% reduction in waste volume and 50% reduction in weight. The process output is an inert, safe and sanitised refuse derived fuel (RDF), a valuable source of feedstock for further processing to energy.

Typical applications:

Waste Processor Advantages

Our Waste Processor range efficiently process from 20kg to 2,000kg per hour and include three types:

The Waste Processors meet European and New Zealand safety standards and allow the statement "Zero Waste to Landfill" to be achieved.

Waste Processors can be installed at the point of waste generation or incorporated into a Material Recycling Facility with all non-recyclables processed through the Processor into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) for further processing to generate sustainable renewable energy.

For a city or council application, a hub and spoke model is established utilising Satellite Waste Processor stations located at Waste Transfer Stations to process waste in local areas and reducing the volume and weight for transportation to a central Advanced Thermal Distillation Process plant for renewable energy generation.

Waste Processor 'Process'

step 1

STEP 1 – WASTE LOADING

The waste is loaded into the sterilisation chamber (by hand in small machines or by means of an on-board automatic loader) in its original packaging, in plastic or cardboard bags or boxes, and the lid is closed.

step 2

STEP 2 – CRUSHING

The rotor starts and accelerates gradually while the material becomes finely ground and the temperature rises quickly to about 100 °C.

step 3

STEP 3 – EVAPORATION

The heat generated by friction in the material causes the evaporation of the waste moisture as the temperature remains constant around 100°C.

step 4

STEP 4 – SUPERHEATING

Once all the moisture has been eliminated, the frictional heat causes the temperature of the material to rise up to 151°C.

step 5

STEP 5 – STERILISATION OR PASTEURISATION

The temperature of the material is held firm at 151°C for 3 minutes, under moist heat conditions, by means of controlled water dosage.

step 6

STEP 6 – COOLING DOWN

The waste is sprinkled with water in order to lower the temperature of the material to about 100°C. A vacuum pump then lowers the temperature further down to 60°C adiabatically.

step 7

STEP 7 – UNLOADING

The treated material is unloaded by centrifugal force through the opening of a servo-operated valve positioned at the bottom of the treatment chamber.
