MRF takes sorting duo

Equipment manufacturer Machinex has provided two advanced sorting systems for Shanks’ waste treatment facility in South Kirkby, West Yorkshire.

The first system is a mixed dry recyclables sorting plant that segregates plastic, glass, metal containers, paper and cardboard at a capacity of 19 tonnes/hr. A purity rate of 95% will be achieved by Machinex’s screens, optical sorting and a glass clean-up system, an air capture system for plastic film, ferrous magnets and a non-ferrous eddy-current system.

The second system segregates materials from residual waste to produce refuse-derived fuel, with a priority of maximising organics and metals recovery.
