Instrumentation and process control for waste management & recycling industries
All waste management and recycling systems require some degree of monitoring and control. The more complex an industrial process becomes, the more important it becomes that it is correctly controlled and monitored. This is where instrumentation and control systems are crucial. An instrumentation system is a collection of instruments used to measure, monitor, and control a process. A control system manages and controls other systems or devices. A key area of instrumentation for recycling industries are scrap analyzers used for accurate on-site processing. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in Instrumentation and Control for recycling and sorting industries.

Everyone is talking about Explosion Safety and the associated effects in conventional production plants. It’s also an important issue in other areas. One of them is the recycling industry where, during the separation, shredding and processing of combustible materials explosion-prone dusts are created. The following will provide you with details for an Explosion Safety concept in a recycling plant for printer toners, and also with further information on the safety devices used.Read more
In Europe, the amount of plastics wastes produced amounts to about 25 million tonnes a year. On the average, no less than 37 kg plastic waste a year will be produced by each German, this amount being based on nothing else but packaging waste . Quite often these plastics will end up as micro-plastics in the air, in the soil and in the sea and thus in our foodstuffs. To counteract this adverse impact on our environment and our health, the European Union aims at circular economy  in order to preserve resources as long as possible.Read more
