Shredders make the world go round

In the world of scrap, the shredder is at the heart of any recycling plant. That’s why the 2020 March/April issue of Recycling International will contain a prominent special section on this essential piece of equipment.

Did you know the worldwide industrial shredder market is worth nearly EUR 720 million? Analysts at Global Info Research estimate the international market will enjoy annual growth of 1.3% until 2024 by when it will exceed EUR 780 million.

In the last couple of months, several new types of shredders from big brands such as Lindner, Vecoplan, SSI Shredding Systems, Inc, Danieli, and Shred-Tech have entered to market. With the major IFAT trade fair coming up in May, the string of new arrivals is unlikely to stop.

For example, Terex Ecotec has recently launched the TDS 825, a robust twin shaft, slow-speed shredder. The high capacity, customisable machine is said to be ideal for large-scale operations and is suitable for all types of material including household, bulky and commercial waste.

It would be impossible to list every innovative shredder development in a single article so that is why we are planning an in-depth shredder special for the second issue of next year. And, of course, we want to include as much industry input as we can.
