Waste to energy as part of the solution

In order to reduce the climate wrecking greenhouse gas emissions that drive global warming, waste to energy acts as a grand part of the solution toward carbon neutrality.

Shredding energy from various waste materials

There are several things to consider when the attempt is to master recycling for circular economy in an environmentally feasible way, waste-based fuel production following suit. Each waste stream has its own specific characteristics, treatment methods, recovery and recycling possibilities and for an individual waste management operator, the waste streams may change constantly. Therefore, the waste shredding process needs to be adjustable, to adapt as the quality of the source and end material vary. Commercial and industrial waste, tyres, construction and demolition waste, and other types of waste can be crushed one after another and even mixed after shredding.

Shredders in the energy business must be flexible and efficient. The high torque of the TANA Shark makes it extremely versatile for handling any type of waste from mattresses to waste wood. An optional magnet helps remove metals from the material flow. A single TANA Shark shredder is often sufficient to replace two shredders or a shredder and a screen. The TANA Shark is one of the heaviest shredders in the market, meaning a solid structure, robust components and long service life.

TANA shredders

Alternative fuel production

TDF – Tyre Derived Fuel

Tyre Derived Fuel is composed of shredded or cut end-of-life tyres with most of the metal wire removed. The new TANA 440DT with its 44-knife rotor is ideal for shredding tires down to 50mm pieces in just one pass.

SRF – Solid Recovered Fuel

Solid Recovered Fuel is produced by shredding and dehydrating solid waste, such as construction and demolition waste and commercial and industrial waste. Producing SRF requires extremely versatile shredders.

RDF – Refuse Derived Fuel

Refuse Derived Fuel is typically produced from construction and demolition waste, commercial and industrial waste, and municipal solid waste. Plastics are a typical compound of RDF and an easy material for TANA Shark shredders.

Reduce operating costs. Optimise the shredding process.

The cost of energy in shredding process is typically larger than the profit. To meet the higher recycling targets and to keep shredding costs to a minimum, the process must be more efficient than ever. To get more savings, it is time to optimize operational usage, fuel/energy, operators, and maintenance. Getting one versatile shredder is a way to create a more efficient shredding process with fewer machines and labor costs. Optimize your process with in-built intelligence and mobile real-time view of operational data.
