Volume Reduction Technology
Solid waste volume reduction technology innovations
Volume reduction of solid waste is mainly used for diverting large volumes of materials from the waste stream to a manufacturing process. Volume reduction is primarily a pre-recycling operation and needs follow-up. Compacters, balers and presses, the main volume reducers for waste materials, are useful for two reasons. They reduce solid waste volume for efficient transport and prepare waste for further size reduction. Compacted waste also takes up less space in a landfill, and therefor extends the life of the landfill. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in volume reduction technologies for solid waste handling.
