The Vickers Seerdrum for processing municipal solid waste (MSW). The Seerdrum will separate the organic biological waste from the inert material. The recovered inerts including the metals, plastics, glass and textiles can be separated on a clean MRF for sale to the recyclables market. The organic fraction, when refined, has value as a biomass for conversion to renewable energy.
Seerdrums are available as 5, 10 and 15 tonne per hour capacities.
Waste destined for landfill or incineration, shown above, is processed by the Seerdrum and separated into the organic and inert fractions delivering useful products shown below.
The pulped organic fraction delivered by the Seerdrum, which is typically the food, card and paper in the raw MSW, is typically produced at a rate of about 600 - 1000kg per tonne of MSW processed and at 50% moisture content.
