The new shredder from the Andritz Aduro shredder line can produce up to 10 tons of RDF (refuse-derived fuel) per hour and features a brand-new rotor design specially developed for high throughput and demanding single-stage applications. It will replace a machine from another supplier and process pre-sorted, pre-consumer plastic waste to a particle size below 40 mm in only one step. The ADuro P3000-F shredder is a slow-speed, single-shaft shredder with a hydraulic pendulum pusher and an electric motor drive.
Andrea Bertorelle, industrial technology and mechanical engineer as well as manager of the RDF plant, Energie AG Südtirol, says: “With the new shredder, we have seen enhancements in all areas – in terms of input and output material, logistics and material flow. Everything has improved significantly.”
Hans Glawischnig, President of the Supervisory Board, Energie AG Südtirol, continues: “The collaboration with Andritz Recycling was exemplary. We were able to run tests at another company where an Andritz shredder is operating before the project even started.”
Energie AG Südtirol was founded in 2001 and is part of Energie AG Oberösterreich, with headquarters in Linz, Austria. The company is specialized in the collection and disposal of waste and operates in Neumarkt near Bolzano, Italy, as one of 28 disposal plants located in Italy and Austria.
