waste management facilities

Coparm designs manufactures and installs waste management facilities and specific treatments, transport and sorting plants for recyclable materials such as paper, waste collection, multi-material, and industrial waste similar. The success of the treatment of waste fractions is mainly linked to the selection that is made to the origin, greatly improving the recovery rate.

Coparm offers solutions starting from basic systems for manual or mechanical and more complex plants involving specific machinery and equipment more and more ‘sophisticated to get results in full compliance with current regulations regarding waste disposal.

Coparm can offer a mixed recycling service to include cardboard, paper, newspapers, plastic films and bottles and steel and aluminium cans, which can all be put into one bin. There’s no need to separate them, so you can increase your recycling rate simply and more effectively. It not only saves time and hassle, but reduces costs by avoiding disposal to landfill.

Systems for the treatment of W.E.E.E.

Electronic waste is a problem that Coparm can transform into an opportunity for any clients that have to treat from 500 kg/h to 6000 kg/h.

An in-depth knowledge of the destination markets of materials resulting from the recycling process allows us to assist and advise clients on the process most suited to their activity, on the basis of the volumes and the quality of the incoming material.

W.E.E.E. essentially encompasses a vast range of waste that is treated with systems studied in detail according to their features (large presence of metal in the “white” W.E.E.E. as opposed to electronic chips in the W.E.E.E. from offices, etc.).

After an initial phase of manually separating cables, batteries, toner and other easily retrieved elements, the appliances are sent to the first shredding/opening phase. Once again, the outgoing material undergoes a manual search to remove cables, glass, batteries, electronic cards, transformers, electric motors, etc. The remaining material continues along the belt to the shredder, which reduces the material to pieces ideal for the following magnetic, inductive and densimetric separation systems.

Coparm is able to offer a compact solution for the treatment of white W.E.E.E. that permits the material to be developed and used in a single step and with minor investment, or a more articulated solution to obtain the maximum quality of end materials for an even greater yield.

Food Waste Recycling

Food waste, any food substance that is raw or cooked, and then is discarded, has been a growing concern in the recycling and waste industry. With this also comes opportunity. According to EPA, food waste accounted for nearly 14% of all MSW generated in 2010 and is now recognized as the single largest component reaching the landfills. Food waste is often source separated; in this case we shred and remove packaging. The Coparm Group has the right equipment and solutions to turn this problem into an opportunity.
Food Waste Recovery and Recycling

We can offer a series of trommel screens with the right size specifications to separate food waste from a waste stream. We pair our trommel screens with other separation equipment such as magnetic separators if you are using anaerobic digestion or sending food waste to compost, which offers the benefits of resource recovery as well as creating an incredibly beneficial product from organic waste that would otherwise have been sent to landfill. Food waste needs to be separated early from any waste stream, whether it is at a municipal solid waste material recovery facility, composting site, or front-end waste to energy systems; see all of our recycling sorting equipment.

Green Waste Recycling

Green waste is biodegradable waste that is composed of garden or park waste, such as grass or flower cuttings and hedge trimmings, from residential and commercial sources. Green waste can be decomposed and recycled into organic matter that can be used for various applications. Some means of processing green waste are by composting, anaerobic digestion or gasification. Sometimes, green waste is mixed with other municipal solid waste and needs to be separated from the waste stream in order to be processed, Coparm Group separating equipment is the solution.

Green Waste Recovery and Recycling

The Coparm Group can provide efficient and effective durable equipment to separate green waste from the material stream. In the cases where the green waste is source separated, we provide the bulk material handling equipment and shredders while removing metals that may be in the stream. See our trommels and other green waste recycling equipment.

Waste to Energy Systems

There are many different waste to energy systems and processes that create energy from waste streams. Coparm will compliment your process with the most reliable and efficient front end systems.

Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT): MBT plants are designed to process mixed household, commercial and industrial waste. The process combines a front-end sorting facility with a form of biological treatment such as composting or anaerobic digestion.
Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF): RDF is produced by shredding and dehydrating municipal solid waste. Glass and metals as well as other non-combustible materials are removed by mechanical separation leaving only the combustible materials such as plastics and biodegradable waste. RDF is often used in cement kilns and gasifiers.
Pyrolisys: Pyrolisys is the thermo-chemical decomposition of organic materials at high temperatures without the use of oxygen. It is used mainly to produce charcoal, methanol, gasoline, biofuel and other chemicals, and to turn waste into safely disposable substances.
Anaerobic digestion: Anaerobic digestion is a process in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material without the use of oxygen; it is good to use on material with high moisture content. Anaerobic digestion is used to manage waste and produce energy. The end result, after many series of digestion treatments, is methane and carbon dioxide.
Gasification: Gasification is a process that converts organic materials into carbon monoxide and hydrogen, the resultant gas is a source of syngas, renewable energy when it is not derived from fossil fuels. That organic material reacts at high temperatures with a controlled amount of oxygen and without the use of combustion. Some types of gasification are plasma arc waste disposal and fluid bed gasification.
Biodrying: Biodrying is the process where biodegradable material is heated rapidly throughout the initial stages of composting, which removes moisture from the waste and reduces it in size and weight. It is a fairly quick process that uses minimal electricity and aerobic bacteria often in mechanical biological treatment facilities. It can be used in the refuse derived fuel process or applied to mechanical biological treatment plants.
