Plant description

In order to operate an integrated management of municipal solid waste, the designed plant is aimed to both maximaze the recovery of materials and prepare a fuel from waste, the refuse-derived-fuel (RDF). The maximum treatment capacity amounts to 300,000 t/y.
The machinery layout is arranged in three lines for the mechanical sorting of municipal waste, having a total treatment capacity of 365 t/d; the system comprises: a wide storage area for incoming waste, a hopper and two pre-shredders that make the material dimensions adequate for the following sorting phases (dimensions less than 200 mm) and two vibrating screens to separate two flows of materials, the underscreen one, that is smaller than 30 mm, and the upperscreen one, from which ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals (e.g. aluminum cans) are also separated. The upperscreen fraction is also subjected to air separation, optical separation and manual sorting in order to select plastics for recycling (PE, PET, etc.). Lastly, the driest fraction separated from the incoming waste is sent to a fine shredding section for producing the RDF, a high-calorific-value fuel, which is baled and sent to thermal plants. A fourth line, consisting  of a rotating screen, is also set up to treat the roadside waste from the urban roads weeping activities.
The factory shed is constantly kept under negative pressure in order to ensure the health of the workplace. The air treatment system is constituted by a wet scrubber system.
