PRM Waste Systems redesign AD Plant to improve efficiency. The objective was to provide a reliable system for the separation of plastics from food waste.
With CO2 emissions in the UK at approximately 18 million tonnes and almost half of the UK’s annual food waste coming from domestic sources, AD is a cost effective and environmentally responsible system of waste management, which helps to lower the UK’s carbon emissions.
This busy plant takes in domestic food waste from local authorities, plus food waste from the hospitality and retail sector, as well as from manufacturing.
The plant required updating as their previous separation system was no longer reliable or efficient. PRM designed the reconfiguration of the front end equipment as below and provided the following equipment:
2 x Runi SK370 Screw Compactors for AD, 2 x conveyors, plus a platform support frame and all required hoppers.
The commissioning stage is almost complete:
