                                                  The Multistar One makes waste wood and biomass processing highly efficient. An upstream Crambo handles the shredding, and the One then takes care of separating out a defined useful fraction while returning overlengths to the shredder. With a feed hopper for precise material transfer to the generously dimensioned screen deck, a discharge conveyor with 4 m cone height and a return conveyor that can pivot through 220°, the One is ready to deliver up to 200 m³/h throughput.
                                                  The machine is built on a hook-lift frame, making it compact. The conveyors are designed for flexible positioning, while the low-wear screen deck and electric power ensure top economy.

                                                          The Ballistor is used to separate out usable fractions from waste and potential recyclables. By combining ballistic separation with screening, separation is performed in one operation in accordance with the criteria 3/2-dimensional, rolling-cubic-rigid/flat-soft-narrow, or undersized/oversized particles.

                                                          With a choice of separation into three or four fractions, five sizes and many options, the Ballistor separator can be configured to suit the application.

                                                              In a splitting system, various mixed or presorted wastes are screened and separated to get the best possible sorting of material streams. Most of the sorted fractions are returned to the cycle for use as reclaimed material. The usual process sequence is shredding by Terminator, screening of the fine fraction (if there is substantial organic content), and separation of the two- and three-dimensional items with a Ballistor in preparation for sorting.
                                                              Further sorting can be done by automatic sorter (NIR or similar) or manually. Komptech splitting systems are designed and dimensioned to customer requirements. The composition of the input material and the potential sales outlets of the final products are key factors. The process is scalable from low to very high throughput.

                                                            • Waste to energy

                                                              In an RDF plant, various mixed or pre-sorted waste streams are shredded, screened and separated to generate refuse-derived fuels for all kinds of applications. Cement works and heating plants are the major users.

                                                              The typical process starts with shredding using a Terminator, followed by screening of the fines (if there is a substantial organic component), separation of the 2-dimensional (high caloric) and 3-dimensional (material reclamation) fractions with a Ballistor, and final post-shredding of the high-caloric fraction for use as fuel. The use of a Ballistor can increase the amount of material reclaimed for recycling.

                                                              The process is designed and dimensioned to customer requirements. The composition of the input material and the potential sales outlets of the final products are key factors. The process is scalable from low to very high throughput.

                                                              The goal is to stabilize the organic content and bring it into disposable condition, while preparing the remainder for thermal and material reclamation.
                                                              The biological treatment takes place anaerobically (anaerobic digestion) or aerobically (composting). The details of the processing line are configured for the specific customer’s input materials and sales venues for the output fraction.

A gripper crane moves the wood to the feed hopper of the Crambo low-speed shredder. Unlike a high-speed shredder, it is very resistant to contraries. A magnetic separator over the conveyor pulls metals out of the shredded material stream.

                                                              A Multistar 2-SE or 3-SE star screen is used to obtain the screen cuts desired by the customer. Automatic return of the overlengths by conveyor to the shredder reduces filling time and costs. Bypass capabilities and further treatment steps (like non-ferrous separation) make it possible to configure the system exactly for the customer’s needs.

                                                              In countries where separate organics collection is not yet in place or only partially so, the production of “quality compost” from municipal waste is the only way to meet the demand for compost. Even where organics are source-separated, trash can get put in the wrong bins, and improper prior treatment can result in contraries like glass, stones and plastic getting into the material.

                                                              For Komptech compost preparation, the compost to be cleaned needs to be sufficiently cured or dry. Preparation starts with drum or star screening. The material is normally separated into an undersize fraction of 0-15 (20) mm and an oversize fraction. The undersize fraction is cleaned of contraries in one or more air separation steps, and then forms the product. Following cleaning by wind sifter, stone separator or a combination thereof, the oversize fraction can be returned to the rotting process.

Clean energy is produced from the decomposed organic material and compost and liquid fertiliser from the fermentation residue. But packaging, contaminants and inert waste prevent direct introduction into the fermentation process.

                                                                  Processing solutions for wet fermentation

                                                                  The reuse of materials and energy from waste is central to modern waste management. The foundation for it is laid by mechanical preparation in the form of waste splitting.
                                                                  In it, recyclables are recovered from the waste stream and high-yield combustibles are separated out for further processing as refusederived fuels (RDF). The remaining residue fraction can be stabilized and then landfilled.

                                                                  Efficient solutions for complex tasks

                                                                  Following shredding a range of technologies can be deployed, depending on the specific material and conditions. These include all-purpose drum screens, ballistic separators with rotating screen elements to separate flat from three-dimensional fractions, or disc screens that work efficiently even with material that tends to wrap and tangle.

Using a selective treatment process, fractions high in calorific value are separated off from commercial and industrial waste, creating a marketable product. Depending on calorific value, composition and particle size, this fuel is used in industrial fluidised bed firings, in cement kilns and in RDF power plants.

                                                                  The right technology

Preshredding brings the input material to a uniform size, which in some cases is already the right size for fuel, and eliminates overlengths which would interfere with further processes. Separation removes contraries and recyclable materials from the fuel fraction. Fine shredding brings the fuel fraction, now free of contraries, to the right particle size. Optional Post-screening makes sure that the particles do not exceed the maximum size for fuel use.

However, to reach the ambitious goals for heating and energy generation from woody biomass, it will need to be made available in large amounts. In keeping with our slogan, "Technology for a better environment", we have taken up the challenge of finding ways to do this.

                                                                  Additional revenues in a new business area

This way, companies previously operating in the disposal business can transform themselves into energy suppliers.
