Lindner & Mach Tech Services Feature
design & manufacturing is done here in-house and we then install the plant working closely with Mach Tech. We have the expertise and flexibility to build any size of plant from simple shredding, conveying and magnetic separation right through to huge multi-line plants with extensive processes to separate the various waste products out. To make sure that we continue to grow with the market we have just invested in a new 10acre site where in 2020 we will begin to build a brand new high-tech optimised production facility, in order to keep up with the continuous growth in the future.
“Every few years
we take around
5-10 new
apprentices on-
board to make
sure we are
ahead of the
game with future
skilled workers,
we also finance a
local school
where the
students are able
to use tools and
techniques that
we have installed
prior to taking them on as apprentices. With our US base we can also offer work opportunity placements in the states to give our people a unique global working experience.”
Lindner have manufactured and installed over 1,000 static shredders & plants around the world and currently manufacture about 100 mobile shredders per year. They have won a Global CemFuels award five times, the latest one being for a complete plant where they won the award for ‘Outstanding alternative fuels project of the year’. Here
Lindner installed an entire facility for the production of refuse derived fuels (RDF) at LafargeHolcim, the world’s largest cement manufacturer in Kujawy, Poland. Thanks to its state-of- the-art technology and well-engineered design, this is one of the most modern and productive facilities throughout Europe. With its customised production line, different fuel qualities can be produced. In addition to being exceptionally efficient, Lindner was also able to meet the highest safety standards required by LafargeHolcim and could therefore secure the internationally coveted award for this project.
We talked with Marco Egger, Global Sales Manager for Lindner “The UK is a very important and growing market for us in terms of both mobile shredders and static plant and we currently have sold around 120 machines into the UK market with Mach Tech. Input material varies from MSW and bulky waste through to production waste and mixed waste and we can integrate our shredders into existing plants or we can design and manufacture turn-key bespoke plants for MRF, SRF and RDF.
“Plastic recycling is a very important market for us today, countries like China are not accepting anymore plastic for recycling so this market has huge potential for us right across the world. We are able to provide a complete solution with our sister company Lindner Washtech and include all required technologies including shredding, pre-washing, friction washing, granulation, separation, washing and drying – so the ideal material for the subsequent extrusion is provided by us.”
Product News
Marco continued “Some more exciting news is that we have also developed a new cooling system that will eventually be standardized across our entire shredder and plant range, this is the detection of heat spots through the system where
