Treatment of urban wasteSUW - MSW

Solid Urban Waste or Municipal Solid Waste makes up a high percentage of the household and commercial waste produced. The heterogeneous set of this waste is generically called “dry” and mainly consists of various types of plastic mixed with small percentages of metals.

Panizzolo plants are valued for their production performance, low consumption and management costs, and their ease of use. We stand out for our strong experience as direct users of processing systems and, exploiting this know-how, we study all the new solutions focusing on the customer and on the success of their investment.

Discover the dedicated grinding plant

The treatment of solid urban waste includes an initial stage consisting of dividing solely plastic materials from components containing metal. Composite waste follows a primary grinding route, magnetic sorting and density sorting, so as to extract iron, aluminium, copper and brass. The non-metal residues left over can again be treated with specific cycles or handed over to the incinerator.

Here too, like in other recycling processes, sorting distinguishes between general production and quality production which aims at maximising the yield of waste in terms of quantity and quality of the extracted secondary raw material.
