Styrian know-how for China’s waste 

REDWAVE has received a further major order from China to supply a mechanical-biological waste treatment plant (MBT). The plant will process over 650,000 tonnes of household waste

annually. The client is a Chinese engineering group which has been active in the waste disposal and waste incineration for many years. The order is worth some € 24 m. The plant will be built in Shandong Province and is scheduled to go into operation in early 2018. The initial order for an MBT near Shanghai was awarded at the end of 2015.

REDWAVE based in Gleisdorf, Austria, specializes in sorting plants for the recycling industry. Since the German subsidiary was founded in Wetzlar, Hessen, last year, greater focus has been given to the field of mechanical-biological waste treatment plants. REDWAVE is a division of the Austrian plant engineering company BT-Wolfgang Binder GmbH, in Gleisdorf.

The two treatment plants in China offer a solution to a problem that is specific to the country: Namely that the domestic waste is very wet and often will not burn in a waste incineration plant (WIP) without added combustion fuel. In the mechanical-biological waste treatment plants, the waste is first biologically dried and then treated mechanically. Through the drying process, recyclable materials can be recovered such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals and inert contaminants such as glass, stone and ceramics can be separated out during the mechanical treatment. All combustible components such as plastics, wood, cardboard, paper and organics are processed into fuel, which the client uses in a power plant using fluidised bed technology to generate electricity and heat. Fluidised bed furnaces are very efficient, but place greater demands on the homogeneity of the feedstock than conventional waste incinerators with grate firing systems. The fuel is comparable with local refuse derived fuels (RDFs). Both of the waste incinerators operate fully automatically.

REDWAVE is one of the leading suppliers of sensor-based sorting machines and turnkey recyclable material sorting systems.
