An Italian SME specialised in innovative solutions for waste valorisation has patented a new system to reduce the volume of inorganic waste which could be applied to industry, commercial activities and private users. This is a low cost production technology which allows to reduce waste volumes over 95%. Partners for license agreements or technical cooperation are sought.
An Italian SME specialised in innovative solutions for waste valorisation has developed and patented a new system to reduce the volume of inorganic waste. The system can be applied to industry, commercial activities and private users and therefore the Italian company is looking for partners interested in adapting the technology to their needs or might be interested in further development through technical cooperation. The company is also interested in license agreements for their patented technology.
The technology patented by the company allows to cut plastic bottles, aluminium cans and glass bottles in pieces of 1 centimeter of diameter and consequently the volume waste can be reduced by over 95%. The system might be adapted to other machines treating waste or it might be used as a separate machine. The system can be used at home as an household appliance, near drink vending machines for minimizing this kind of waste, in the horeca field as a support for kitchens in restaurants or hotels or for ships and caravans because of their low space availability for waste.
The system is the result of years of study and research and it has been actually patented at international level and industrialized, so it is ready for the market.
The system represents an alternative to other expensive systems known today as the compaction one.
Comparing the cost of compactors with the cost of the presented system, the latter is 30% lower. This technology also allows to insert in the same machine different materials, for example glass, plastic, aluminium or paper to obtain waste volume reduction and dramatically decrease the frequency of delivery of waste for collection. Consequently, there are several benefits resulting from the technology use, starting from the needed space reduction for waste storage up to the environmental benefits resulting in a smaller amount of travels that collection means must perform. Furthermore, all recovered waste will be already pre-processed and will suffer less processing to become a new product, so there will be an evident overall lower production of pollutant emissions.
Normally, industrial cutting technologies are expensive and it is necessary to use very large engines to process waste. Other used technologies are compaction systems which allow anyway limited volume reduction.
The cutting technology proposed by this company combines the possibility of using small engines with a more effective waste reduction (the initial volume can be reduced by more than 95%).
For example, in a bag waste of 120 liters size, by using a compaction system, it is possible to contain about 290 0.5 liters plastic bottles, whereas this technology allows a 120 litres size bag waste to contain about 600 plastic bottles.
Another important feature of this technology is related to the one centimeter pieces resulting from this cutting system. These pieces are raw materials ready to be reused for new products. Without performing further processing it is thus possible to create a short, economic and environmentally sustainable recycling process.
