Spanish Facility Uses New Shredder

Spanish waste management company Madegan has commissioned a new shredding system that will enable the family-run business to process up to 20,000 tons of waste per year.

The new machine is to boost the capacity and flexibility of its Madrid facility. Following an extensive three year research project, Madegan headed to Austria to visit the global shredder manu­facturer Untha and procured the XR mobil-e – a new shredder that has quickly become renowned for its ability to efficiently process a variety of wastes. When fully operational, the shredder will allow Madegan to process a number of waste streams down to a homogenous particle size of 30-40 mm. Supplied on tracks and with an in-built conveyor, it can easily be moved around the Madrid site and plugged back in.
