M&M Waste Solutions has sights on recycling boost with UNTHA shredder

  • PDF

Oxfordshire-based M&M Waste Solutions looks set to boost its recycling recovery rates in 2019, thanks to the installation of a new UNTHA shredder.

The 46-year-old business is a well-known name in the resource sector, with a history spanning coal distribution, skip hire and – most recently – end-to-end waste collection, management and treatment, at the firm’s MRF in Cassington.

Now handling 150,000 tonnes of materials each year M&M sought to further boost its approach to recycling as it looks to the future.

Macclesfield-based Tidy Planet is bringing the latest Waste-to-Energy boiler technology – the Artificial Vision System (AVS) – to the UK business landscape.

The news of food waste expert Tidy Planet’s partnership with Valencian-headquartered Sugimat – being the sole distributor of their industry-leading boilers – was announced earlier in the year. And the next chapter of this relationship is now seeing the firm unveil the new intelligent boiler monitoring and control system in Britain.


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.

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.
