Granutech helping US military’s recycling efforts

Global – Major recycling equipment manufacturer Granutech-Saturn has sold three mobile shredders to the US military. The dual-shaft shredders will be used on military bases in the Pacific: on Okinawa, which forms part of Japan’€™s Ryukyu Islands in the East China Sea, and also on Guam and Hawaii.

′The military has over 10 of our mobile shredders so far, and we are pleased to be able to continue to meet the needs for recycling on US bases around the world,′ says Matt Morrison, vice president of Granutech-Saturn Systems.

The Saturn dual-shaft mobile shredder, which employs a diesel/hydraulic drive system, will be used to decommission a wide variety of materials present on military bases. Granutech says it had to innovate to meet specific military goals regarding weight, size, portability and throughput capacity while also satisfying Tier IV emission requirements.
