A medium-sized RS60 four-shaft shredder is the latest machine to be added to the company’s fleet. Working alongside an UNTHA RS50, the technology will process up to 500 tonnes of e-waste per week.
Elsewhere on Polska Korporacja Recyklingu site, a 22 tonne RS150 – the largest four-shaft shredder in the UNTHA fleet – and a compact Untha RS40, have been supplied by German engineering partner URT, to handle 60 refrigerators per hour.
UNTHA says the four machines collectively process a wide range of electronic waste “to liberate the recyclable materials, including steel, aluminium alloys, copper and plastics that would otherwise remain locked inside”.
After being shredded to 15-mm particles, the waste is separated before being recycled, compliance tested and reused in the manufacturing process.
Shredder reject is used for energy recovery.
