„MayRec“– Recycling plant of the Future

Project description

The Projects’ aim is the modernization of the RDF (refuse derived fuel) production plant owned by Anton Mayer GmbH, in which machines produced by Komptech Environmental GmbH are integrated. Focus of the new facility is the production of recycling material instead of the RDF for energy recovery.

It is expected that a process simulation of new treatment paths will change the quality of the output materials, which will be proved with mobile machines.

Focus of the new production site is to extract the recyclable materials, therefor the knowledge of the waste substances is quite important. To achieve this knowledge manual sorting of the waste at several times is required - as pictured in figure 1.

Aims of the project

  • Change focus from producing RDF material for energy recovery, to producing recyclable materials for recycling and reuse.
  • Development of a future based production plant in cooperation with Komptech GmbH and Mayer GmbH.
