ANDRITZ recycling plants: profitable, efficient and reliable

The ANDRITZ plant range offers recycling solutions for a wide variety of different applications: Electronic and electrical waste, refrigerators, cable scrap, aluminum scrap, automotive parts like oil filters, motor blocks and tires, domestic, industrial and bio waste as well as rejects from the paper industry.

All materials contain valuable parts, e.g. copper, aluminum and iron, which are available and can again be sold as secondary raw materials when processed properly.

Find out more about ANDRITZ recycling industries:

recycling-icon-WEEE-refrigerators

Electrical and electronic waste

Examples:

Household appliances, consumer electronics, computers

Result:

Freed PC boards, cables, transformers, capacitors, aluminum, copper, iron and stainless steel

Short description:

In a single-step process the recyclable material composites are broken-up and sorted into clean fractions.

Refrigerators

Examples:

Refrigerators, freezers with CFC/pentane

Result:

Aluminum, copper, iron, plastics

Short description:
The recyclable material is extracted from the equipment in an environmentally safe manner. Due to the encapsulated system of the plant the harmful greenhouse gases of the cooling agent can be recovered.

recycling-icon-PP-rejects

Rejects from pulping and screening

Result:

Metals, refuse derived fuels, PVC

Short description:
Depending on the strength of the waste composite from the paper industry different systems for the primary shredding and granulating are used, which extract the metals and process the rest to substitute fuel material.

Pulper rags

Result:

Substitute fuels, plastics, steel, other metals

Short description:
Pulper rags are a valuable secondary raw material source. This waste from the paper industry largely consists of steel wire, which can be recovered and re-used if the right shredding technology is available.

recycling-icon-metals-specials

Metals and special solutions

Examples: 

Aluminum waste, steel turnings, fiber-glass, PVC, batteries, spray cans, used beverage cans

Result: 

Broken-up ferrous and non-ferrous metals

Short description:
Special plant solutions for the most varied types of composite materials break-up the valuable recyclable components.

Cable scrap and wires

Examples: 

Household cables, power cables, underground cables, copper/aluminum cables, high-voltage cables

Result:

Copper, aluminum, iron, lead, plastics

Short description:
Recycling the metals in cables and wire requires only a fraction of the energy that must be expended to initially mine and extract ore.

Automotive parts

Examples: 

Oil filters, motor blocks, catalytic converters, shredder-light-fraction, aluminum rims

Result: 

Iron, non-ferrous metals, plastics, paper, oil

Short description: 
For a wide variety of automotive parts our recycling plants extract the valuable components and ensure an environmentally sound treatment of the sometimes oil-bearing parts.

Used tires

Examples: 

Car tires, truck tires, agricultural tires

Result: 

Tire chips, rubber granulate, rubber powder, steel wire, textile fluff

Short description: 
The objective of tire recycling is to break down the used tires into their individual components – rubber, steel wire, textiles. ANDRITZ plants recover raw materials in a multi-stage process that achieves highest purity levels.

recycling-icon-substitute-fuels

RDF production

Examples: 

Household and industrial waste, production residues, bulky waste

Result: 

Plastics, textiles, PVC, paper, metals, minerals, wood, glass

Short description:
After the shredding process and separation of the valuable components the remaining calorific value fraction is processed to substitute fuel.

recycling-icon-wood-waste

Wood waste

Examples: 

Offcuts, veneers, boards, panelboard, saw mill waste, demolition/construction waste

Result:

Wood particles of defined size (10 to 200 mm) for composites, fuels, etc.

Short description:
The slowly rotating ANDRITZ FRX and FRP shredders can process large quantities of wood and even huge logs into manageable sizes.

recycling-icon-organic-waste

Organic waste

Examples: 

Organic/bio-waste, restaurant/kitchen waste, packaged food, corn and whole crop silage, animal manure, grass silage

Result:

Removed packaging, unwrapped organic waste material suitable for pumping

Short description:
The Bio-QZ system breaks down the cell structure of the input waste materials for optimum fermenting conditions in biogas plants.
