Untha Supplied Shredders for Plant in Russia

Two Untha XR waste shredders are now in operation in Russia, following a collaboration between the Austrian-headquartered engineering firm and Kaluzhskiy Zavod Kommunalnih Mashin (KZKM).

The duo of machines is set to shred one million tons of municipal solid waste per year for the Russian State. The MSW – which is collected from dozens of neighboring towns and cities – is reduced to a fraction size of 200 millimeters for onward treatment and recycling.

As a municipal machinery specialist, KZKM has historically concentrated primarily on the manufacture, supply and maintenance of heavy industrial equipment for Russia’s road infrastructure, Untha gave account. “However, the company’s growing reputation has led to wider expansion, which resulted in the firm being the main technology provider for a new recycling plant in Kaluga region – part of the country’s nationwide waste collection program, Ecology.”
