One of the Machinex shredders now in place

Developed as a merchant facility located at our Levenseat site in Central Scotland, we are well placed to process household waste from multiple local authorities as well as commercial waste from the private sector.

Our Material Recycling Facility (MRF) is designed to process 42 tonnes per hour of commercial & industrial waste or municipal solid waste with an annual capacity over 200,000 tonnes.

 

Technology – Maximising Recovery Rates

The MRF will be built by Machinex a world leader in the industry, developing cutting edge sorting, waste management and recycling technology.

Inside the new facility

To maximise recovery rates the facility will be equipped with, a Machinex trammel, a waste screen, three air separators, two Machinex ballistic separators, three Machinex MACH Hyspec optical sorting units, one fluidised bed dryer, four shredders and two Machinex single-ram balers.

The fluidised bed drying technology is a self-sustainable continuous dryer that will use the heat generated by the EfW plant to help dry the wet organic waste used in the production of RDF

Materials such as wood, cardboard, ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, mixed plastics, paper and inerts will all be recovered and diverted back into the manufacturing or construction industries.

 

Fuels Produced

After removing all recyclable material the remaining residual waste is prepared into a Fuel. The residual waste is shredded, dried and baled ready to be conveyed to our Power Plant for energy recovery.

Our MRF is configured to produce both a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) & Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) and will provide a minimum of 100,000 tonnes per annum of high grade RDF as a feedstock for the Levenseat Energy from Waste Plant.
