Until a few years ago, in Italy and Europe , non-hazardous ashes and slag from incinerators were sent to the landfill. In the last few years, the introduction of restrictive European laws in the sector of waste collection and management has imposed to maximise the recovery.
When this kind of waste is put in an appropriate recycling plant , the slag from incinerators has remarkable recovery properties. From the treatment process is possible to obtain copper, brass, aluminium and other metals as output materials. Inert dusts are very abrasive components that can be sent to cement plants at the and of the the treatment.
With Panizzolo refining plant the waste from incinerators are introduced in an End-of-Waste recycling cycle which operates only with mechanic treatment. The Flex 500 Stationary Refine hammermill (with patented cradle) and the patented refiners mills RAF-F and RAF-M treat the waste with only a step without losses of inert.
Thanks to specific castings and processing logic, the hammermills can treat abrasive waste like combustion ashes.
From the incinerators waste, granulated metals like copper, brass and aluminium can be recovered, separating them from inert materials and falling into the “Secondary Raw Material” category. Panizzolo refining plant maximises the metals profitability for sale, breaking down the operating costs and simplifying the maintenances.
