Municipal Solid Waste
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), or household waste, consists of discarded everyday consumable items. This general waste is normally put into a black bag or bin and contains a mixture of wet and dry recyclables, organic, inorganic and biodegradable materials, including food waste, containers, cans, cartons, product packaging, newspapers and card.
As one of the world’s leading system integrators, Bollegraaf knows what it takes to separate MSW into valuable recyclables on the one hand and high-quality RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) on the other. With increasing regulatory pressure on landfilling untreated MSW and the active search for alternative energy sources, energy-from-waste has become an important solution.
At Bollegraaf, we build 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, along with minimising the waste fraction that is sent to landfills.
