Austrian shredding specialist, Lindner Recyclingtech has supplied the shredding equipment for a project at the Technical University of Munster, Germany.
Founded in 2008, the 875 square metre technical center of the laboratory for Waste Management, Water Management and Environmental Chemistry of the University in Munster, Germany (LASU) runs experiments for research and development projects.
According to Lindner this can involve the treatment of heterogeneous mixtures such as alternative fuels, electrical waste and residues from the waste paper recycling to the determine particle size distributions as well as the chemical and physical composition of waste.
In most cases the company said that the centre's customers are waste management companies, processing companies and research ministries.
In addition to the new Type VEGA S600 supplied by Lindner, other equipment at the centre includes a vibrating screen and a mobile drum screen, a mobile sliding spark spectrometer and a near-infrared spectrometer, and various hopper scales.
"Shredding technology is in the center of many waste treatment plants," explained Professor Dr. Sabine Flamme from the Department of Civil Engineering of the Technical University of Munster and Head of LASU technical center.
According to the professor shredding is the only way to separate the various composite materials and then recover the various valuable components. Another research is the determination of quality of the waste," she continued.
The evaluation of heterogeneous and coarse-grained waste at the centre requires sample sizes of up to one cubic meter to produce representative results.
