Mixed Waste Processing
All of New Planet Energy’s processing and storage is managed indoors in a modern state-of-the-art facility using the most effective equipment to increase quality and uptime while reducing processing costs.
New Planet Energy’s recycling facility initially will process up to 2,250 tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) per day.
The system can be sized to meet the needs of the municipality.
The processing of MSW begins with the liberation and separation of material using a specialized spiked trommel.
Sorters positively separate the bulky plastics, metals, and clean cardboard. A series of advanced magnets are then used to remove all metals before the primary shredder.
The primary shredder uniformly sizes the material for further 2D & 3D separation before going through the optical sorters.
NPE’s optical sorters are capable of sorting plastics by type and removing any contaminants affecting the value of SRF. (see Solid Recovered Fuel)
The secondary shredder sizes the SRF to specifications before it is tested for quality and moisture. Any excess moisture is removed using non-thermal dryers.
Once the process is completed, all recyclables are baled and sold into re-usable markets to help create a sustainable environment for future generations.
