Paper and cardboard screening and separation for a circular economy

Multiple screening sections and optimized separation for best productivity

The volumes of the paper and cardboard that industries need to treat and separate can vary from very small to very bulky, such as large packaging. Thanks to the multiple screening sections available, Ecostar can use either a standard screen or a two-stage screen to maximize the screening efficiency of paper and cardboard, with a processing capacity of up to 20 T/H.

The Italian paper sector is a European leader in the circular economy thanks to the commitment of citizens and the technologies used in the recycling sector. In fact, in the recycling of paper and cardboard it is also essential to use high-performance and economical screens, capable of separating material in various sizes to obtain high quality secondary raw materials. Ecostar screening solutions also guarantee efficiency in the use of space, thanks to the compact and reliable machines.
