Balers and plants for waste treatment

Sorting and baling of municipal solid waste, industrial waste, refuse derived fuel

Macpresse plants and balers for waste treatment were designed to sort municipal solid waste (MSW), unsorted solid waste with organic material, industrial waste, refuse derived fuel.

Our machines efficiently recover and enhance the materials contained in the waste. This applies to PET, HDPE, cardboard, paper, aluminium… In a recovery process, these materials are not destroyed, but collected and processed to generate new raw materials: “secondary raw materials”.

Waste baling provides advantages in terms of logistics, of landfill lifetime and environmental safety.

Our balers can also be equipped with wrapping machines that reduce odor and leachate spilling, increasing environmental safety of landfills.




Thanks to special measures adopted, Mac balers are able to recover most of the leachate in the humid fraction of MSW, in order to reuse them for production of electricity.
In an important plant in South East Asia we have installed a unit of eight balers with an ambitious goal: removing 40% of the liquid fraction and using the leachate for production of biogas and the dry part for incineration, with an output of 600 ton/hour

Landfill Remediation

In South East Asia we have installed modular plants for rapid, efficient and economical landfill remediation: abandoned waste in landfills is processed by a disc screen which separates the bulky fraction from the soil. The screened waste is baled, wrapped and then transferred to a new landfill, while the soil is used for covering the new landfill. Thanks to baling and wrapping operations, landfills are now compliant with the regulations in force and all problems regarding leachate, break-downs and fires have been eliminated.

Mac balers are not only used for removing the wet fraction of the waste meant for incinerators. Very often they are also used for volume reduction and storage of refuse derived fuel. This method has two advantages: by compacting the humid fraction of the waste, the calorific value of the material increases, and the reduction of the volume occupied allows to generate significant reserve stocks in limited spaces.
