Recycling plants for refrigerators

ANDRITZ recycling plants for cooling devices can reclaim 90% of environmentally harmful greenhouse gases.

A particular benefit is that even modern refrigerators – in which the insulation materials have been expanded using highly-explosive pentane gas – can be processed at the same time as CFC appliances without a risk of fire.

ANDRITZ refrigerator recycling plants

The completely sealed system of the Universal Cross-Flow Shredder QZ takes in the refrigerators in batches and separates them in their individual components. A subsequent matrix degassing extracts the CFC from the insulating foam. With this gentle and environmentally friendly method of processing, the ANDRITZ recycling plants for refrigerators comply with highest European environmental standards. The extracted individual fractions of iron, copper, aluminum, plastics and polyurethane foam can directly be returned in the economic cycle.
