Ftmmachinery Accelerates the Recycling of Municipal Solid Waste

Author : Fote | Last Updated :

Ftmmachinery offers the Mobile Crushing Station to process the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), in order to convert it into the valuable and environmentally friendly raw materials more quickly and effectively.

Yearly 2.1 billion tons of Municipal Solid Waste is produced, but only 16% is recycled

BBC shows that Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) production has been steadily climbing yearly.

However, countless dumping and landfilling cannot handle all the trash efficiently, because it usually takes one thousand years or more to decompose. Plastics, for example, cannot be biodegradable thereby they will stay in the landfill site forever.


“China and India account for more than 36% of the global population, and garbage accounts for 27%”, says BBC, “The U.S. produces 12% of the world's trash, and it ranks No.1 in per-capita waste, three times the global average of waste and seven times that of Ethiopians.”

In terms of recycling, the U.S. only recycled 35% of MSW. Among all the countries, Germany is the most efficient country as it recycled 68% of the trash.

Recycling is a long-term project.

Due to the decreasing natural resources and sustainable development, accelerating the recycling must be put in an important position.

“Crushing is the key to accelerate recycling”

Noah Thompson, the chief expert of Ftmmachinery, says “Municipal Solid Waste of different shapes and sizes, such as rocks, coke cans, glass bottles, and newspapers, are mixed and piled together.

Before being fully utilized, the trash is required to be crushed to the right grain size first, and then screened and sorted.”

Obviously, the crushed trash is much easier to be processed, which effectively speeds up the whole recycling process.

The quicker and more efficient the recycling process is, the more valuable Municipal Solid Waste turns out to be as raw materials.

What can be recycled?

Over the past 40 years, Ftmmachinery is always keeping the faith in Reducing, Reusing and Recycling.

Here is a newest recycling list. Remember that everything with a recycling mark on the bottom can be recycled separately.

What can be recycled?

  • Papers

    Example: Cardboard boxes, newspapers, etc.

    Recycling 1 ton of paper can save 17 trees, representing a 64% reduction in energy consumption, a 58% reduction in water usage, and a 60-pound reduction of air pollution.

  • Metal cans

    Example: Aluminum cans, steel cans, etc.

    Recycling 1 ton of coke cans can save 2 tons of bauxite. And 3 tons of bauxite can produce 1 ton of aluminum. Learn about Bauxite Processing.

  • Glass

    Example: Glass jars and bottles.

    Glass bottles and jars can be crushed to produce new bottles and glass sand, which can help you obtain a pretty good benefit. Learn about Glass Recycling.

  • Construction and demolition waste

    Example: concrete, asphalt, gypsum wastes, etc.

    Construction and demolition waste can be crushed and processed in the factories. After processing, they are widely used for paving the driveway. Learn about Learn about Recycling of Construction waste.

  • Plant waste

    Plant waste can be used as the soil fertilizer. Besides, rice husks and coconut shells can be used to produce pure natural charcoal briquettes for BBQ. Learn about Charcoal Briquette Making Process.

  • E-waste

    Example: Batteries, iPad, computers, mobile phones, etc.

    The recycling of E-waste may cause some unknown dangers for workers and communities. Thus, great care should be taken to avoid unsafe exposure to lead, cadmium, beryllium, and other metals.
