Recycling electronic scrap and refrigerators

ANDRITZ offers complete plants for processing electrical household appliances, such as white goods and consumer electronics, as well as refrigerators. The ADuro AZ shredder is the heart of an ANDRITZ plant. Without requiring cutting tools, the QZ breaks down different composite materials quickly and gently with rotating chains so that the individual materials, like iron, plastic, printed circuit boards, cables, and copper coils, are exposed and can be sorted easily in the process that follows. Parts containing hazardous substances, such as batteries and capacitors, are left intact and can be disposed of without any negative impact on the environment. The fully encapsulated, single-stage system for processing refrigerators, e.g. recovers more than 90% of the environmentally harmful greenhouse gases from CFC and pentane appliances without any risk of fire.
