Organic waste and the importance of the screening process

Whether we are talking about composting plants, or integrated aerobic or anaerobic digestion and composting plants, a quality end product depends on screening as part of the recycling process. Ecostar screens guarantee a homogeneous product and the separation of organic waste (wet fraction and green fraction) from plastic or other non-compostable materials, as in the case of the screening of municipal solid waste. 

The advantages of Ecostar solutions

Ecostar stationary and mobile solutions allow excellent organic-plastic separation, ensuring greater efficiency and productivity. In addition, clogging and wrapping are drastically reduced thanks to our advanced technologies.
