Processing technology for the Energy from Waste industry
The basic treatment of bottom ash from municipal solid waste incineration can be explained in a simple way. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are separated from mineral elements by means of different sieving techniques, multi-stage sieving processes and the use of magnets and eddy-current separators. In addition, organic contaminants are removed by wind sifters. Manual sorting is also part of the process. This all sounds relatively straightforward, but of course these processes involve a much higher level of complexity. What makes REMEX special in comparison to other industry players are the innovative additional techniques such as MERIT® that we develop and apply to optimise the recycling results. Our 3D animations give an impression of all our pioneering solutions.
The dry processing MTF is used for fine non-ferrous metals at the HEROS Sluiskil B.V. site. With the acquisition of Dolphin Metal Separation B.V., HEROS has expanded its metal processing capacities. In Harderwijk, the coarse non-ferrous metals are cleansed of mineral impurities and separated into light and heavy metals using state-of-the-art sink-float techniques. more
