For recycling processes, which include disposal, collection, sorting and transformation of materials that can be reused, it is important to have the right equipment.
With that in mind, we prepared an article to present TANA, one of the world leaders in manufacturing machines and solutions for the mechanical treatment of solid waste that provide more operational efficiency for companies in the sector.
How much does Brazil generate waste?
According to data from the Brazilian Association of Public Cleaning and Special Waste Companies (Abrelpe), in 2021 Brazil generated 82.5 million tons of solid waste. Of this total, only 2.1% were recycled. Among the main materials that go through the process are various packaging, paper, cardboard, plastic, and glass.
In this scenario, it is important to emphasize that the more these rates increase, the greater the possibilities of generating income and employment. This is because, from the collection of materials to their commercialization, recycling companies need qualified and semi-qualified labour to carry out the various processes. Therefore, the greater the demand for waste recycling, the more job opportunities in the sector.
The importance of waste management equipment
In addition, for recycling processes, which include disposal, collection, sorting and transformation into materials that can be reused, it is also important to have the right machines. In view of this, with the objective of collaborating with this market and with sustainability, Máquina Solo, in partnership with TANA, one of the world leaders in solutions for the mechanical treatment of urban solid waste, industrial waste and bulky waste, has a portfolio of high-performance equipment for recycling.
