ANDRITZ MeWa – German engineering, Chinese manufacture

ANDRITZ MeWa develops and manufactures recycling machines and complete solutions for the recycling of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), refrigerators, oil filters, household and domestic waste (RDF), used tires, and much more.

ANDRITZ MeWa has been playing a leading role in the recycling industry for almost 30 years.  It supports its customers in realizing their plans and meeting their individual requirements economically, efficiently, and accurately. The goal is to re-use the recycling material as new raw materials, like pure metals and plastics, and to substitute fuels with bioenergy.

The ANDRITZ MeWa machine range consists of special different units that perform specific tasks in the complete recycling process: primary shredding, secondary shredding, and fine granulation, as well as breaking up of material composites and also making recyclable material accessible at the same time. All recycling machines are characterized by their flexibility, efficiency, and reliability, processing the input material to obtain pure, valuable substances, all at a high throughput.

ANDRITZ MeWa recycling plants: profitable, efficient, and reliable

The ANDRITZ MeWa plant range offers recycling solutions for a wide variety of applications: Electronic and electrical waste, refrigerators, cable scrap, aluminum scrap, automotive parts like oil filters, motor blocks and tires, as well as domestic and industrial waste. All materials contain valuable parts, e.g. copper, aluminum and iron, which become available again and can be sold as secondary raw materials when processed properly.
