Municipal Solid Waste screening

Separation quality and top productivity in less space

The Ecostar dynamic disc screen makes the separation of the dry and wet fraction of municipal solid waste simpler, more effective, and economically advantageous. Ecostar municipal solid waste screening systems are capable of separating up to 100 T/H using just 15 kW of power.

Municipal solid waste and the importance of the screening process

In the case of municipal solid waste, screening is fundamental as it helps municipalities and private companies that use MSW shredders and grinders to simplify the recycling process as much as possible. This process applies to both the separation of the organic fraction from the municipal solid waste to be transformed into compost or biogas, and the separation of the light fraction for the production of RDF (Refuse-derived fuel). When the municipal solid waste is adequately separated by innovative screening solutions that guarantee the best results, both can be transformed into high-quality materials and put back on the market. To further improve the process, Ecostar developed a technology that drastically reduces clogging and wrapping of long and filamentous materials such as plastic bags of plastic wraps, thus also reducing maintenance, machines’ downtime and cleaning.

The advantages of Ecostar solutions

Thanks to the patented technologies used for separation of organic materials from plastic, Ecostar screens can process and separate shredded and non-shredded municipal solid waste, with maximum efficiency, reliability and energy savings. Moreover, the Ecostar screening solutions, both mobile and stationary, can operate in limited spaces, whether outdoors or indoors, meaning maximum adaptability and flexibility to operator’s needs.

The best technology for screening municipal solid waste 

HYPER DDS (Dynamic Disc Screening) is the solution developed to process particularly difficult waste containing long and stringy materials, such as bags and plastic straps used for packaging which can wrap around shafts, or plastic bottles that can get stuck thereby obstructing the separation process.
