Paper and Cardboard

Improve sorting efficiency and energy generation

Paper and cardboard are typically separated from one another early in the recycling process, after which they continue their individual journeys. Efficient pre-shredding makes it much easier to screen and separate the two from each other.

Accelerating the paper and cardboard recycling process

The life cycle of paper and cardboard does not end after they are used once. When they are clean and dry enough, both can be used as raw materials to make new paper and cardboard, while dirty paper and cardboard can be utilized in waste fuels such as refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and solid recovered fuel (SRF).

The energy efficiency of both materials can be improved by reducing them to the right grain size for easier processing and more efficient combustion. Pre-shredded paper and cardboard are easier to screen and separate from each other and other materials. When it comes to energy production, an optimal grain size enables maximum energy generation through combustion.

M&J pre-shredders and fine-shredders reduce the size of paper and cardboard for further processing. In many cases, waste is first pre-shredded for screening and sorting and then finely shredded for energy use, but processes vary depending on the nature of the waste and the required applications.

We know how

Improve efficiency: Shredding accelerates the flow of material and speeds up screening and sorting.

Increase energy output: Waste that has been reduced to a homogeneous grain size generates more energy through combustion.
