This is where the cycle begins. At the Swedish company Veolia Recycling Plastics Sweden AB, waste bins, HDPE pipes and other contaminated hard plastic waste are turned into new raw material with the help of a WEIMA PowerLine 2500 shredder and downstream wash line.
In Exeter, UK, Devon Contract Waste recycles a wide variety of hard plastics. This includes not-so-everyday items such as fuel tanks, kayaks and road cones. The central component of the recycling plant is a WEIMA WLK 1500 single-shaft shredder.
Producing paper products generates a lot of waste. In the classic recycling cycle, the production waste or surplus is shredded and then returned to the production process. The Munich start-up company easy2cool has a different but equally sustainable use for paper waste. Using a WEIMA WLK 1500 Shredder, revolutionary and sustainable insulating elements are made from corrugated cardboard packaging.
The first IFAT impact business summit celebrated its premiere from Sep 8-10 2020 in Munich, Germany. With success from the very start: approx. 2,100 people participated online in the course of three days. And WEIMA played a key role in this program. Sales director Patrick Henzler, representing the recycling and size reduction industry, explained innovative shredding solutions for the handling of post-consumer plastic waste.
Recycling specialist WEIMA has been playing its trust in the cooperation with the hydraulics experts from Hägglunds for many years.
At Sucker Holzbau GbR a lot of wood waste accumulates over time. With the help of a WL 6 single-shaft shredder and a wood chip oven, this is used to heat the workshops and offices as well as three single-family homes.
See for yourself the full spectrum of WEIMA’s shredding capabilities. From the typical applications like wood, paper, and plastic to the extraordinary applications like kevlar or paper money.
