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.
