Product Portfolio
  • MARKETS

  • What drives us at Bollegraaf is a thorough understanding of our customers’ business, and the desire to contribute to their success. Improving the world of recycling inspires us to get the absolute best out of a recycling system. As a global authority in recycling solutions, we know our customers’ markets and add value to their business.

    We understand that the composition of the waste received for processing is always variable, so versatility is of paramount importance in a recycling system. Bollegraaf’s market-leading knowledge and expertise, results in turnkey solutions that are flexible, reliable and deliver the lowest operating cost per tonne.
      • Municipal Solid Waste

      • Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), or household waste, consists of discarded everyday consumable items. This general waste is normally put into a black bag or bin and contains a mixture of wet and dry recyclables, organic, inorganic and biodegradable materials, including food waste, containers, cans, cartons, product packaging, newspapers and card.

        As one of the world’s leading system integrators, Bollegraaf knows what it takes to separate MSW into valuable recyclables on the one hand and high-quality RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) on the other. With increasing regulatory pressure on landfilling untreated MSW and the active search for alternative energy sources, energy-from-waste has become an important solution.

        At Bollegraaf, we build high-end turnkey installations that focus on recovering both valuable recyclables and energy from MSW. The purpose of the installation is to separate, sort and process valuable commodities, such as RDF, plastic containers, PET, Tetra Pak and glass, along with minimising the waste fraction that is sent to landfills.
      • Single Stream Waste

      • A single stream installation separates, sorts, and processes valuable commodities, such as newspaper, mixed paper, plastic containers, PET, Tetra Pak and glass, which are then baled and shipped for reuse.

        While most EU countries still have a policy that favours source separation, Single Stream waste processing is increasingly becoming an alternative for recycling mixed MSW. Based on our experience in the United States and the United Kingdom, Bollegraaf is certain that Single Stream waste recycling is an effective, efficient and sustainable alternative to the way most European countries currently collect and process waste.

        Optimising economic value with the lowest possible costs per tonne is the short-term goal for every Bollegraaf installation. The long-term goal is to ensure permanently low operating costs for a fast return on investment.
      • Plastic Waste

      • A plastic waste installation separates, sorts and processes valuable packaging materials, such as PET, PE, PP and Tetra Pak, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, which are then baled and shipped for reuse. Bollegraaf’s effective and innovative solutions remove plastics from waste, minimising the amount going to landfill. Our equipment can work with existing combined waste streams and in specialist plastic only sorting installations.

        Optimising economic value with the lowest possible costs per tonne is the short-term goal for every Bollegraaf installation. The long-term goal is to ensure permanently low operating costs for a fast return on investment.
      • Construction & Demolition

      • Bollegraaf design and install specialist equipment to process construction and demolition (C&D) waste into valuable materials, such as wood, RDF, paper, ferrous and non ferrous metals in order to minimise the waste fraction that is sent to landfills. Construction and demolition waste constitutes one of the largest waste streams in the EU, with an annual production of 1 billion tonnes. Increasing landfill tax rates and growing environmental awareness make recycling C&D waste a solid business opportunity.

        Bollegraaf provides effective solutions for recycling C&D waste that are tailored to your requirements, such as local fees, labour costs, regulations and the opportunities to sell the recovered materials. As one of the most experienced suppliers in the world, we have an installed more than 300 C&D recycling solutions worldwide.

        We know there is no single specification for the composition of C&D waste; it varies by country, region, city and even suburb. The requirements for the separation system also vary, depending on the available markets for the recycled products. Our market-leading knowledge and expertise, inspires us to engineer, build and deliver tailor-made solutions, that are easy to use, have a low cost of ownership, perform to your specifications and offer an excellent return on investment.
      • De-Inking Waste

      • The purpose of this specialist installation is to separate, sort and process printed paper and cardboard from an input stream of mixed paper. The output is then baled and shipped for reuse.

        Better separation is the key to a higher value output, thereby increasing the quality of the end product. At Bollegraaf, we build and provide high-end turnkey installations that combine a range of effective separation technologies to improve the quality of the output and its intrinsic value. This will substantially reduce de-inking costs for your clients, the paper mills.

        Optimising economic value with the lowest possible costs per tonne is the short-term goal for every Bollegraaf installation. The long-term goal is to ensure permanently low operating costs for a fast return on investment.
      • Confidential Shredding

      • Significant savings can be achieved at many offices by freeing up valuable office space that is occupied by filing cabinets or boxes full of documents. However, when it comes to classified and confidential documents, out of sight doesn't necessarily mean out of mind.

        That's why at Bollegraaf we invest a lot of time into offering products and installations that meet the required legal standards for the destruction of such confidential documents. The result of this effort: your peace of mind. The purpose of the installation is to separate and shred confidential document archives. The remaining mixed paper is then baled and shipped for re-use.

        Optimising economic value with the lowest possible costs per tonne is the short-term goal for every Bollegraaf installation. The long-term goal is to ensure permanently low operating costs for a fast return on investment.
      • Waste to Energy

      • Bollegraaf customers are able to produce high-value Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) from the combustible components of municipal solid waste (MSW). The waste is shredded, dried and baled and then burned to produce electricity, thereby making good use of waste that otherwise might go to landfill. MSW and commercial & industrial (C&I) wastes are increasingly seen as a resource, largely driven by legislation and the increasing scarcity of some materials. As the input of most MSW and C&I waste varies, it is essential for reliable systems to be able to handle various input streams with control of the calorific value and size of the RDF output. The system must also be well equipped to recover the valuable commodities, such as plastics from the waste stream. Differences in physical properties, such as the size, shape, density and weight of different objects allows ferrous and non-ferrous, plastics, glass, stones and fines to be effectively separated from the wastes. These valuables are then fit for reuse. This is why Bollegraaf provides customer-specific solutions, which enable you to be versatile to optimise profitability.

        We are well aware that performance is key, which is why Bollegraaf’s waste processing systems have an excellent track record of low downtime. They also give you full control of the calorific value and size of the RDF output, so that you can provide your customers with on-spec RDF.

        The flexibility and performance of our bespoke systems makes us the partner of choice for major waste processing companies worldwide. We have been engineering, building and implementing sorting systems worldwide for more than 55 years, working in partnership with our clients to produce an excellent return on investment.

                        • Safety First with B.O.S.S. 2.0

                        • Recycling company workers are exposed to significant health and safety hazards in the workplace with heavy machinery such as balers, conveyors and shredders. By taking additional, precautionary measures, dangerous situations and potential accidents can be avoided.

                          B.O.S.S. 2.0 ensures your sorting and recycling system complies with the European safety standard EN 16252:2013, and that safety requirements are met. The standard states that horizontal balers, fed by conveyors, require additional emergency stop devices to be fitted to protect a fallen person on the conveyor. B.O.S.S. 2.0 provides a very good solution to make your system EN 16252:2013 compliant, especially if the horizontal section of a feeding conveyor is placed in a pit. The system is certified according to the EN ISO 13849-1 PL c safety standard.
                        • Lubo Water Bath Separator

                        • The water bath separator is a stationary, or mobile, installation for separating the light fraction from construction and demolition pre-screened material.

                          The water bath separator consists of a water-filled tank that features an integrated STARSCREEN® to separate floating materials, and a conveyor to discharge non-floating material. The dimensions feeding the water bath separator are generally > 10mm and < 250mm. Due to an upstream waterflow, the lighter materials are removed and travel over a double-deck fine screen where the water is taken out and the materials fall into a residue bunker at the end of the screen. The heavier material is transported by an incline chain conveyor to the granulate bunker, or can be sent over a quality control sorting line, for a final check for materials, such as PVC etc.
                        • Lubo Vibrating Feeder

                        • A vibrating feeder is a heavy-duty bunker with a vibrating gutter to gradually feed the sorting system. The transport speed of the feeder can be altered by changing the vibrating frequency of the drive – the lighter material moves more slowly forward than the heavier material.
                        • Lubo Glass Cleaning System

                        • The system consists of a vibrating screen with a flexible screening deck, which removes the 0-10mm fraction out of a dirty material stream. This fraction can contain a lot of fine glass, which causes enormous wear to the air system and should be removed from the material stream before it reaches the wind shifter.

                          As the wind shifter does not clean the 0-10mm fraction, there are small pieces of paper in this stream. Behind the vibrating screen there is a covered conveyor with a wind shifter positioned at the end with an integrated reception chute.
                        • Lubo Glass Breaker Screen

                        • The Glass Breaker Screen was developed to break glass and screen it at 50mm. An optional second screening deck that screens at 120mm is also available to remove tin cans among other things, in preparation for separating metal.

                          The Glass Breaker Screen is basically a 2 deck star screen which is designed for breaking and screening the glass fraction in a waste stream. To break the glass, the first deck comprises shafts with steel flower stars. The flower stars are made from very wear-resistant Hardox steel and have a diameter from 330mm. The second screening deck comprises conventional Lubo 235mm rubber stars, as standard. The optional second screening deck has solid steel axles with 330mm diameter rubber stars.
                        • Bollegraaf Drumfeeder

                        • The Bollegraaf Drumfeeder was specially designed to optimise waste paper sorting systems. The Drumfeeder ensures that your sorting system, baler or shredder has a constant flow of material.

                          The Drumfeeder can also be combined with a special version of the HBST steel belt conveyor with a 2000mm high side wall - the so-called bunker belt. For easier loading of material into the system, the Drumfeeder can also be placed in a recessed or concrete pit.
                        • Bollegraaf PaperSpike

                        • The PaperSpike® is a system for removing A3 to A5 sized cardboard residue that has been left behind in the paper flow after the screening of cardboard and used paper. The PaperSpike® is manufactured exclusively for Bollegraaf by Grumbach.

                          The principle is astonishingly simple and yet totally effective. The material is spread out into the thinnest possible layer and fed into a rotating disc roller that is equipped with spikes. The paper, which has very little strength, is not retained by the spikes and falls through. The cardboard on the other hand, is spiked, transported to the cardboard extraction belt and removed from the spikes by means of a striker shaft.

                          The PaperSpike® is a unique machine in combination with the sorting systems from Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions and the STARSCREEN® manufactured by Lubo Systems (part of the Bollegraaf Group).
                        • Bollegraaf Filmgrabber

                        • Films such as shopping bags and wrappings make the recyclables sorting process more difficult and more time-consuming. The filmgrabber has been developed to solve this problem.

                          The Filmgrabber removes films from a recyclables stream at the beginning of the separation process, with the removal of more than 70 percent of the fraction larger than A4 size. The machine consists of a revolving drum with a variable speed motor and inward and outward moving pins. The recyclables are moved up by air, which allows the films and foils to be picked up by the pins inside the revolving drum.
