vanced plant may be used to produce a third stream either a primarily biodegradable waste stream which can be sent for Anaerobic Digestion or In-vessel composting or a relatively high calorific value stream for conversion to Refuse Derived Fuel.
Fully-Automated MRF’s - automated systems offer higher throughputs and reduced operating and sorting costs and consistently higher recovery levels.
Super MRF’s - feature larger conveyors, large automated sorting screens, high-capacity balers and multi-bay shipping docks for outbound industrial feedstock harvested from curbside bins. Super MRF’s handle and sort high tonnages of waste and use high degrees of automation to reduce operating costs and give high recovery levels.
