The VTH 65 is engineered for the single stage size reduction of lineal plastic scrap. It produces granulate that can be reintroduced directly into the manufacturing process. By eliminating the need for multiple machines and multiple processing steps, the VTH 65 not only saves on initial capital investment, but it also saves valuable production time and plant floor space.
Biomass combined heat and power plants (BMCHP) produce electrical energy from biogenic solids – and additional heat which can be used efficiently. In order for the combustion process to run smoothly, the mass must first be processed mechanically to obtain a homogenous unit which is free from extraneous material. Vecoplan supplies systems for storing, dosing and conveying the different material for this purpose. The machine builder tailors and matches these systems to the particular application – for example at Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S. Vecoplan has designed individual fuel charging and processing systems at five sites for the Danish manufacturer and BMCHP operator.

Disposal of plastic waste salvaged from the sea – Vecoplan® supports ghost net recycling with its processing technology
Putting an end to ghost nets
The international recycling company Tönsmeier became a partner of WWF Deutschland (World Wide Fund for Nature in Germany) in September 2015, and since then has been working to rid the Baltic Sea of ‘ghost nets’, i.e. abandoned fishing nets made of plastic. The environmentally-friendly recycling of these polypropylene and polyamide ghost nets is being tested – so Vecoplan® AG was brought in to create an optimum process for transporting, processing and recycling the salvaged material – and the results of initial tests have been positive.
Millions of bags filled with household trash arrive at material recovery facilities daily. Much of this trash is recyclable, but first you have to open the bags. The new VSA 250 T Bag Breaker from Vecoplan does this on an industrial scale.
