Chinese Company Treats Kitchen Waste with New Shredders

Austrian manufacturer Andritz has delivered two shredders for kitchen waste treatment to Grandblue Bioenvironment Co., Ltd., which is operating at its mills in Jinjiang City, Fujian Province, and Xiaogan City, Hubei Province, China.

The two new ADuro QZ1600-BIO shredders process kitchen waste at a design capacity of 15 tons per hour each and pulp the organic fraction effectively by means of rotating chains, Andritz informed. “Non-organic material like plastics remains largely intact enabling optimum separation in subsequent process steps. The machines do not use any cutting tools, but gently and quickly break up the input material per impact forces. Compared to conventional cutting systems, the ADuro QZ offers significant advantages in terms of performance and wear.” Grandblue Bioenvironment collaborates with the Austrian provider since 2016. The company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Grandblue Environment Co., Ltd., will soon start up two more ADuro QZ1600-BIO shredders and equipment for compacting delivered by Andritz for additional kitchen waste treatment plants in Hebei and Hubei provinces, China.
