New Planet Energy’s state-of-the-art recycling facility is capable of handling 350 tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) per hour. 

Here's how it works:

  • The MSW arrives at the tip floor and gets automatically dumped by numerous electric hydraulic truck tippers.

  • MSW gets introduced to the system through drum feeders that begin to rip open bags, meter the material for a consistent  flow.

  • Spiked Trommels finish the bag opening process and then start to separate the smaller fractions from the larger fractions.

  • Sorters will positively sort the bulky plastics, bulky metals and hand sort the clean, soiled- free cardboard.

  • Drum magnets remove all the metals, all the way down to a nail, before the Primary Shredder.

  • The primary shredder uniformly sizes the material for further 2D & 3D separation before going to the opticals.

  • Our Optical sorters are capable of sorting the plastics, removing SRF contaminants, provide BTU and moisture content.

  • The secondary shredder sizes the SRF to spec and sends it off  to testing.

  • After testing, the dryers know exactly how much Non-Thermal drying needs to be done in order to achieve the SRF spec.

  • The recyclables are then baled and sent on to their new lives as water bottles, milk jugs, plastic paint cans, new toy boxes, beverage cans and new car parts.
