Preparation of biological waste and municipal solid waste using the VMpress

Municipal waste has always been considered a problem, something that no one wants to see, something to be removed and hidden as soon as possible. However, the mixed fraction of municipal solid waste (MSW), the materials that remain after separate collection of the recyclable components of urban waste, still contains large quantities of energy.

Municipal solid waste (MSW) or green household waste contains a large amount of energy and exists of three main components:
- recyclable materials;
- organic biodegradable fraction;
- dry fraction with refuge derived fuel (RDF).
Current separation systems create an organic fraction with a lot of non-organics and a non-organic fraction still containing organics. The VM Press, however, is a waste pressurizing machine designed to physically separate waste into two fundamental fractions, an organic wet fraction with hardly any non-organics and a solid dry fraction with almost total absence of organic biodegradable substances. This wet organic fraction can be used in anaerobic digestion plants. Through an additional separation process the dry non-organic fraction is prepared into RDF and recyclables.

Hungarian municipal solid wastes (MSW) management has developed tremendously over the past 15 years. More than 3,000 landfills and dumps had been closed, just to mention one improvement. However, still, lots of work is necessary to accomplish the EU’s ambitious aim of decreasing landfilling and increasing recycling and composting.
