A new Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) production facility is now fully operational in Wonju city, South Korea, thanks to global shredding firm UNTHA and local partner PERITUS.
Korean waste management specialist Zion built the alternative fuel manufacturing plant, to make smarter use of its residual materials. Now, with the new system in place, pre-sorted C&D waste and C&I waste, is being shredded to produce a homogenous 50mm fuel for the cement industry.
The UNTHA XR3000C shredder with cutting concept was chosen following a series of trials at UNTHA’s Austrian headquarters. Demonstrations showed the technology could comfortably achieve throughputs of 60-70 tpd, with scope to almost double that moving forward.
The XR3000C’s flexibility also means Zion can achieve a 40-50mm particle size from the single step shredding of plastic bales, which has further boosted the company’s SRF production capabilities.
Zion extracts as many materials as possible – including bricks, metal, sands, glass and batteries – for re-use or recycling, prior to them entering this SRF manufacturing stream.
