SSI Shredding tackles tough scrap in Japan

SSI Shredding Systems, which has shredders operating in more than 65 countries across all seven continents, has highlighted its global strategy in a new video series.

SSI’s offering showcases its equipment installed at Kayama Kogyo in Japan. The nation’s recycling leader was established in 1961 and has a portfolio covering waste collection, transportation, disposal and recycling.

The video features the Toyokawa Plant, one of many SSI shredder installations that Kayama owns and operates. At this facility, an SSI Quad Q100SD steals the show, acting as both a primary and size-reducing powerhouse. The robust low-speed, high-torque, four-shaft industrial shredder processes a variety of materials and produces a small, consistent particle size.

‘For Kayama, the main goal is not only landfill diversion by processing a wide mixture of material, such as mixed waste, fishing nets and super sacks, but also to create an environmentally friendly fuel material,’ comments company ceo Junichiro Kayama.

‘With SSI as a partner, we can achieve this goal with ease. We currently have three SSI shredders in operation. They are capable of processing extremely difficult materials, which makes them very useful. Also, the customer service has been amazing, which has given us peace of mind.’

Rich Ellis, SSI’s Asia market sales manager, adds: ‘We very much enjoy working with Kayama. It is a progressive company working to make the world a better place.’
