Major Swiss order for BHS Sonthofen

Germany – Recycling company DHZ AG of Switzerland has chosen German recycling technology provider BHS Sonthofen to build a complete plant for processing concentrate from incinerator bottom ash. The plant will also be capable of processing and refining a wide range of metal-bearing materials.

Based in Lufingen, DHZ AG operates a recycling facility which is used to sort resources and contaminants from materials destined for its adjacent landfill. The unit for processing ash from waste incineration plants, which can handle more than 100 000 tonnes per year, takes up ‘a major portion’ of the recycling facility.  Also, each of the plant’s lines can process up to 10 tonnes per hour.

In order to further process the highly-concentrated metals delivered by the Supersort plant, DHZ is setting up a new facility in the nearby town of Oberglatt that will operate under the banner Supersort metall. This will process non-ferrous metal concentrates originating from both customer facilities and the Supersort plants of DHZ. In addition, fine metal fractions derived from shredding vehicle scrap and electronic devices will be further processed there. 

BHS Sonthofen also presented a total of three new products at the IFAT trade show in Munich this week. More details on its novel universal shredder and other innovations will be included in the two-part IFAT report in the upcoming issues of Recycling International.
