Vecoplan to showcase shredding tech up close and digital

German shredder specialist Vecoplan is hosting a series of exclusive live presentations at its state-of-the-art technology centre from 27 to 29 May. During the ‘360-Degree Days’ online visitors will learn all about recycling and processing technology.

On the first day Vecoplan’s experts will present solutions for sustainable waste treatment and flexible, economical handling of refuse-derived fuels. Many cement manufacturers use refuse-derived fuels to reduce their costs, because production is very energy-intensive.

‘After processing, the material must be homogeneous and have a specific particle size range,’ Vecoplan notes. Viewers of the live presentation will see how this is achieved. Next Vecoplan will report on successful systems for plastic recycling.

The second day will feature a number of other interesting topics, starting with advanced waste shredding solutions for extraction of recyclable materials and production of gas, electricity, heat and refuse-derived fuels from various fractions. ‘Correct processing is very important here,’ Vecoplan argues.

Afterwards, its experts will describe new requirements and solutions for mechanical pre-treatment in plastic recycling, which allows plastics to be returned to production in a closed cycle.

On the third day the experts will give a demonstration of efficient shredding in real-life practice and explain the solutions offered by Vecoplan.

The presentations on the first two days will be in German in the morning and English in the afternoon. During these times the participants will be welcome to ask questions, which will be collected and answered in detail at the end of each segment.
