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 to simplify the recycling process as much as possible, whether that is the separation of the organic fraction to be transformed into compost or biogas, or the separation of the light fraction for the production of RDF (Refuse-derived fuel). To further improve the process, Ecostar developed a technology that drastically reduces clogging and wrapping phenomena by long, filamentous parts. 

The advantages of Ecostar solutions

Thanks to the patented technologies used for organic-plastic separation, Ecostar screens can process shredded and non-shredded municipal solid waste, with maximum efficiency, reliability and energy savings.

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.
