United Kingdom – Horse bedding produced by Eco Sustainable Solutions from recycled whitewood chippings was named Product of the Year at the recent Wood Recycling Awards.
Key to successful processing of the chippings is a metal detector from S+S Inspection that sits at the end of the production line, removing nails, screws and other metal items before the bedding is baled and wrapped.
With the company’s previous equipment, contaminated wood chippings posed a serious problem. Metal could escape final safety checks and the material often had to be reprocessed to ensure there was no threat to horses.
Justin Dampney, Eco Sustainable Solutions’ Business Development Manager who first understood the seriousness of the issue, said: ‘The S+S Rapid has helped us exceed the high standards set by our customers without compromising on operational efficiency.’
