Recycling Industry Processing Equipment

Recycling is the process of converting waste into new, usable materials. The purpose of recycling is to save raw materials and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling prevents the waste of useful materials as well as reducing energy usage, air and water pollution. KWS belt conveyors, screw conveyors and bucket elevators are found in many recycling facilities throughout the U.S. Belt conveyors are used to convey sorted materials such as glass, plastic bottles and aluminum to crushing and grinding operations. Screw conveyors are used to convey crushed and ground materials to the next stage of the recycling operation. Bucket elevators typically convey materials vertically to storage silos for load out.
