Depending on the development of a country the amount of organic in the MSW ranges between 30-70%. Where a lot of effort, labour, energy and resources have been used to produce and distribute these organics (i.e. food), these organics often find their way to landfills or incineration at the end-of-life as they can be too polluted for further recycling.
What if these valuable organics could be put into use to more efficiently create gas, electricity or even use these organics as feedstock for insect breeding farms.
To make this as efficiently possible Royal Dutch Kusters Engineering has developed a new smart organic waste segregation technology that optimizes the processing of waste contaminated with organics. Based on a trusted high pressure technology used by Kusters for over 35 years it has developed the Organic Liquefying Press that gives the users the option to separate the organics from the solid parts in a smart way and energy efficient way.
The self-learning press automatically adapts its’ settings to optimise the output and reduce energy consumption. Generating the best output possible, while adding value to processing organic waste as the biogas potential could increase by almost 30%! At the same time the solid fraction can be used for further recycling or as an alternative energy source.
With a capacity of 18-20 m3 per hour the OLP suits medium to large scale operations and can easily be integrated into existing waste processing lines.Click here for related articles and news
