Netherlands-based Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions and Lubo Systems (also part of the Bollegraaf Group) are participating at WasteTech 2017 in Moscow. At the event, which runs June 6-8, the firm is introducing the Bollegraaf VR (virtual reality) Experience.


Visitors to the Bollegraaf stand can experience “for themselves the specialist equipment for separating municipal solid waste (MSW), plastics, single-stream [materials], construction and demolition and industrial scrap,” says the firm.


Also launching at WasteTech 2017 is Bollegraaf’s VR iOS and Android App, which can be downloaded here.


WasteTech 2017 is the first exhibition in Russia attended by Bollegraaf since it announced its involvement in building what it calls “a mega MSW installation” in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, for the MAG Group.


That plant has been designed to sort up to 60 tons of MSW per hour and to operate around the clock. The installation also features “the latest and most advanced technologies,” says Bollegraaf, and has been designed to extract “the maximum quantity of useful fractions from waste,” adds the firm.


The first part of the installation will begin in the summer of 2017 and the second part is expected to be finished in 2018.


Visitors to WasteTech 2017 also will be able to see the Lubo Anti Wrapping StarScreen. Bollegraaf says the machine “solves the common problem of wrapping of materials and ‘sausage formation’ by its ‘aggressive agitation’ system, which prevents small waste fractions from sticking to larger ones.” Obstructive sausage formation is prevented because the large fractions are not spun around as they would be in a drum separator, according to Bollegraaf.


Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions has offered separation and recycling technology since 1961. The company

has designed, manufactured and installed equipment at more than 3,500 material recovery facilities (MRFs).
