Mechanical biological treatment plants use municipal solid waste, commercial waste and industrial waste as raw material. Waste is screened and sorted, and all valuable materials are recovered or used in energy production.
There are two fundamental issues in mechanical biological treatment (MBT): firstly, how effectively valuable materials can be retained and impurities sorted out; secondly, how much energy is generated from the processed material by composting, anaerobic digestion and biodrying.
Improving both the mechanical and biological parts of the process can have a significant impact on the efficiency of the whole plant. A straightforward way to improve productivity is to tailor the waste material to the optimal size for both separation and energy production right at the beginning of the process. Increased capacity is good news for both the environment and profitability of the plant.
Proper pre-shredding turns mixed waste into an easy-to-process grain size, regardless of whether it is packed in plastic bags or contains bulky objects. It is quicker to screen and sort pre-treated material, and if the process is well designed and the equipment properly adjusted, the material will also be the right size for biological treatment to generate the maximum amount of energy.
