Waste management and recycling

Waste’s footprint on the environment can also come from the pollutants generated during the recycling process or waste management. Discover how air filtration solutions can minimize the effects of those processes on air quality.

Keeping contaminated air emissions from waste treatment under control

Waste management can be challenging for several reasons. There can be different levels of harmfulness depending on the waste. Apart from paper, textiles or plastics, recycling electronics or batteries can result in toxic fumes, while some precious metals recovery could be necessary during the process.

The process itself can be harmful to the environment. Incineration or landfilling can cause damage, as well as other techniques used in the separation or waste shredding in facilities.


Cleaner environment, odour elimination, and safer working conditions

Dust and particles can be generated in several mechanical processes in waste management. Rotating trammel screens as well as optical sorting usually release significant volumes of dust during the fall, which in addition to the air blown for ejection, can become a contaminant if not efficiently removed.

Higher dust flow rates are released even during shredding with crushers and in size separations made in waste management facilities. These concentrations require ventilation systems to reduce environmental emissions and to maintain safe working conditions for operators.

Odor elimination is also important, and in this operation dust collectors are also key to remove the dust that can slow down the performance of the odor elimination systems.
