Seerdrum technology is the sustainable alternative to landfilling and incineration with maximum recycling.
The Vickers Seerdrum will process household trash (municipal solid waste MSW) and separate the organic material, contained within the waste, from the other inert products. The valuable, organic material may exceed 50%
The recovered inerts including the metals, hard plastics etc can be further, hygenically separated on a clean MRF for sale to the recyclables market.
The raw organic fraction, when refined, is a medium calorific value, high percentage biomass suitable for conversion to renewable energy subject to approvals or for a compost like material for land remediation.
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) varies by region and country in terms of analysis, moisture content and bulk density. Therefore, the outputs of the Seerdrum will also vary; these outputs being the raw organic fraction and the inert fraction.
Seerdrums are supplied in three capacities of up to 3, 7 and 10 tonnes per hour throughput depending on the analysis of the feed MSW.
Municipal sold waste destined for landfill or incineration, as shown above, is processed by the Seerdrum and separated into the organic and inert fractions delivering useful products shown below
