UNTHA XR shredders aid closed loop recycled paper production

  • PDF

Two UNTHA XR waste shredders are now in operation for VPK Packaging Group in continental Europe, shredding pulped ropes as part of a closed loop paper production process.

Renowned for manufacturing 900,000 tonnes of paper per year from 100% recycled materials, VPK’s mill in Dendermonde, Belgium and Blue Paper Mill, co-owned with Klingele Papierwerke, in Strasbourg, France, naturally generate a waste by-product including complex pulper ropes.

This multifaceted 1:3 metal and plastic material was previously treated off site by a third party. However, the new shredding investment means that both sites can now process the waste themselves to manufacture an alternative fuel for their own energy generation.


Inspired waste solutions

We're already struggling to deal with an annual generation of 2.12 billion tonnes of waste around the world. How do we expect to cope with the estimated 4 billion created in 2100? Despite more and more legislation and processes provided by the world's authorities, there's a limit to their control over the situation. The main deciding factor over environmental damage comes from humanity as a whole.

We are already seeing new and innovative ways to embrace waste as having more potential than just a life at the landfill. Skip hire provider, Reconomy, has the perfect background in responsibly dealing with waste and is here to investigate the ways in which waste can be reused.


Shredder investment reduces fuel consumption by 60% at Waste to Energy plant

  • PDF

Construction and commercial waste management specialist Rabbit Waste Management Ltd has more than halved the energy required to power its shredding line, resulting in cost savings of approximately £60,000 per year.

Rabbit commissioned the UNTHA XR3000C mobil-e shredder in November 2017, in a bid to lower the level of dust, fines, fire risk and noise of its waste processing operation. But the 60% reduced energy consumption has also resulted in significant financial benefits for the Sussex-based business, not to mention a much smaller net environmental impact.

Organisation ‘supporting Britain’s bravest’ turns to UNTHA

  • PDF

Britain’s Bravest Manufacturing Company has invested in a new pallet shredder from UNTHA UK, to enhance the team’s production of materials for the biomass industry.

Established in 1919, BBMC – the social enterprise of charity Royal British Legion Industries - has long strived to support the lives of ex-service personnel, but as the years have passed the Aylesford-based company has gone on to also provide employment opportunities to non-veterans including people with disabilities and those out of work. More than 100 such individuals staff the £5m turnover factory* in which a new UNTHA LR1400 has just been commissioned.
