Leading to MSW Solutions

Municipal Solid Waste (also known as “household waste") is a waste stream that consists of everyday consumable items that are discarded. This general residual waste is normally put into a black bag or bin and contains a mixture of wet and dry recyclables, organic, inorganic and biodegradable materials. This includes food waste, containers, cans, cartons, product packaging, newspapers and card.

As one of the world’s leading system integrators, we know what it takes to separate Municipal Solid Waste into valuable recyclables on the one hand and high-quality RDF on the other. With the spread of legal limits on landfilling untreated household waste and the active search for alternative energy sources, energy from waste has become an important topic. At Bollegraaf, we build and provide high-end turnkey installations that focus on recovering both valuable recyclables and energy from MSW.

The purpose of the installation is to separate, sort, and process valuable commodities, such as RDF, plastic containers, PET, Tetra Pak, and glass. And to minimize the waste fraction that is sent to landfills.
