Mechanical biological treatment

In UNIWASTEC’s mechanical biological treatment, mixed waste is processed.


In UNIWASTEC’s mechanical biological treatment, mixed waste is processed.

In a first, mechanical step, the recyclables and inert substances contained are isolated and fed into the material cycle. The non-recyclable materials serve as substitute fuel for gasification and electricity production.

The solid waste can be stored by balling. In a second, biological step, the organic part of the waste is isolated. It is either dried and processed into substitute fuel for gasification or recycled into C-humus fertilizer as required.

C-humus is a high quality carbon-based agricultural fertilizer produced by processing organic waste.
