Digital and service transformation of business models - the case of ATM Recyclingsystems

The trend of increasing digitalization and servitization affects all industrial companies in all sectors including the waste and recycling industry, as we will present in our case study. In this case, the company ATM Recyclingsystems implemented an IoT platform from t-matix with the goal, to provide customers with products that deliver the best efficiency and optimal cycle times.

Several challenges like shorter technology cycles or the need for customization force companies to transform towards higher digitalization and servitization. The transformation towards Industry 4.0 has an impact on the overall company. Smart connected products allow companies to gather data, for example, about customers and their demands, and to use this information for developing offerings that are tailored to customers’ needs. These offerings tend to integrate a higher share of (digital) services, leading to a transformation of the companies’ product-oriented business model to a service-oriented business model. With the case of ATM Recyclingsystems, we were able to show how a recycling machine manufacturer transforms its business model by implementing an IoT platform from t-matix.

Internet der Dinge – Leben in einer vernetzten Welt
© Universität Kassel (12/2009)
Die Entsorgungswirtschaft beschäftigt sich mit der letzten Station im Lebenszyklus der Dinge. Sie verfolgt dabei die gesetzlichen Zielsetzungen der Wiederverwendung, der stofflichen und energetischen Verwertung und der umweltverträglichen Entsorgung. Für die Erfüllung dieser Aufgaben würde eine völlig neue Grundlage geschaffen, wenn die Dinge ein eigenes Internet hätten. Diese pointierte Ausdrucksweise steht für die technische Möglichkeit, jedes Ding zu identifizieren, Angaben zu jedem Ding zu speichern, die Geschichte eines jeden Dings zu protokollieren und den Zugriff auf all diese Informationen über das Internet verfügbar zu machen.

The AHOY-Project: Waste Wood Sorting with X-ray Technology
© Lehrstuhl für Abfallverwertungstechnik und Abfallwirtschaft der Montanuniversität Leoben (11/2022)
Waste wood is a valuable resource, but is hardly recycled despite increasing demand, predicted supply gaps (Mantau et al. 2010), and galloping wood prices since 2020 (Trading Economics 2022). In Germany alone around 10 million tons of waste wood accumulated in 2016. Only a minor part (1.7 million tons) is substantially reused in the production of chipboards. The majority (7.7 million tons) is fed into energy recovery, i.e., burned in one of the 80 German waste wood power plants (BMUV 2021), and is thus lost, while the supply of fresh wood is limited by slow growth cycles and finite acreage. In view of current environmental regulations, climate change and massive tree mortality, waste wood should be kept permanently in the circular economy as a high-quality raw material in the future.

Fundamental drying experiments with processed residual municipal solid waste materials

Waste management companies and municipalities in southwestern Hungary aim the fulfillment of the EU’s target, namely to decrease landfilling below 10 % and increase recycling above 65 % of municipal solid wastes. However selective collection is continuously improved there is still high amount of residual MSW is generated. A new mechanical RMSW processing plant (20 t/h) and an experimental RDF pyrolysis plant (200 kg/h) had been built (Faitli et al. 2020) and now extensive research is being carried out to solve the local utilization of the bio-fraction and the RDF. This is the reason why this fundamental drying research was necessary. Dryer classification and the selection of the best solid waste drying techniques vary significantly due to the vast range of waste to be dried and the inherent challenges of dealing with non-standardized systems. In general, biomass dryers may be categorized according to their heat transmission technique and the physical qualities of wet particles.

Mechanical short-term and long-term properties of PP recyclate blends

The amount of recycled material in new products should be increased in the next few years. By adding virgin material, the mechanical properties of the pure recyclate can be improved. In this work, 10 % and 40 % post-consumer recyclate was added to a virgin material and analyzed. Both raw materials were also tested. The short-term as well as the long-term properties decrease with increasing recyclate content. The recyclate has a higher influence on the young’s modulus, yield stress and slow crack growth resistance than on the notched impact toughness.
