Glass in many shapes and colours are omnipresent in our society – and it keeps returning over and over again. Its recycling plays a crucial role in the sustainable value chain. With passion and teamwork, our Competence Centre manages the process in which new glass for the »next round« is created from innumerable tons of old glass. Here’s to the environment!
In our Energy Plant Bernburg, action is hotting up. In three boiler systems, refuse-derived fuels are burned at a temperature of more than 805 degrees Celsius. With the combustion heat, water is heated up and steam is generated, which then is either used as process steam or for the generation of electric energy. It is methods like this one that help to go easy on natural resources.
In Paderborn-Elsen (Germany), household waste as well as commercial and construction waste is processed in a complex procedure. The recyclable materials are separated and returned to their respective material cycles as secondary raw materials. Fractions with high calorific value are processed to excellent refuse-derived fuels, non-recyclable materials are prepared for thermic treatment. Nothing remains, not even questions.
In the case of light packagings, being organised makes all the difference. In automated processes, the different materials are separated from each other by means of magnets, screen drums, flow and ballistic separators. After removing composite materials, aluminium and tinplate, near-infrared systems are used, which can even distinguish different types of plastics.
As a specialised and certified family business with 30 years of experience in the field of plastics, Tönsmeier offers comprehensive competence to its clients.
