A Recycling Plant for the Dominican Republic

In September last year, Cibao Metal Recycling (CIMER) Srl, a subsidiary of the Yeyo Ochoa Group in the Dominican Republic, announced the startup of its new three-in-one recycling plant.

It is designed to process up to one ton per hour of oil filters, two tons per hour of electronic scrap, and approximately five tons per hour of car parts and metal sheets, the provider Andritz MeWa informed. The oil filters would be shredded down to a particle size of less than 30 millimeters and separated into the three output materials metals (about 40 percent), centrifuged motor oil (20 percent) as well as rubber and paper (40 percent). The plant will allow future enhancements to process further materials.

According to Andritz MeWa, the plant will be the first multi-functional and comprehensive recycling plant for metals and metal compounds in the Caribbean and Latin American region. The scope of supply comprised a compact package solution for the processing of the three different input materials: car and truck oil filters, automotive parts, and electronic scrap. The equipment consisted of a Universal Rotary Shear UC 1300, a Universal Granulator UG 1000H, a Universal Cross-Flow Shredder QZ 1200 and the complete materials handling and separation technology.
