Municipal solid waste is everything generated from normal households, like food wrappings, diapers, carpets, plastics, small metal pieces, stones, food waste, and many other things. It can also be textiles that need to be downsized to remove foreign objects to recycle fibers.
Municipal solid waste recycling is the process of downsizing the waste to sort out materials for recycling and/or produce RDF (Residual Derived Fuel), which is a fuel substitute with a homogenous fraction size <50 mm and a high calorific value.
RDF as an alternative fuel uses the energy content of the traditional household waste in order to substitute fuel. The production of RDF is the optimum solution both environmentally and economically. To optimize the process, it is important to reduce the waste volume into a homogeneous fraction size of e.g. <50 mm.
The Eldan Recycling System is designed for size reduction of MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) such as plastic wrappings, plastic films, paper, madresses, carpets etc. System capacities range from 5,000-15,000 kg/production hr. The final setup of a recycling system for processing of MSW will depend on the requirements of the customer and the specific input material.
