Cranes For Waste Management

We supply solutions worldwide for refuse processing and recycling. We leverage our many years of experience to offer operators of refuse processing facilities industry-specific expertise. Demag crane installations are used for automatically serving stores and bunkers as well as supplying material.

Fields of application

  • Refuse incineration facilities
  • Facilities for refuse-derived fuels
  • Sorting/recycling

Refuse incineration facilities

Demag process cranes are used for the storage and blending of fuels and to serve furnace lines, which means that they make a major contribution towards the management of the rapidly growing amounts of refuse all over the world. The crane installations can be exactly tailored to meet each customer’s needs:

  • as manually controlled cranes
  • for semi-automated processes
  • as fully automated installations operating 24/7

Facilities for refuse-derived fuels

Fully automated Demag process cranes play a key role in facilities for recycling refuse-derived fuels, such as plastics or sludge. They ensure that the material is effectively stored and blended and that the furnaces are continuously supplied.

Sorting and recycling

We also supply the technology needed in facilities that are used for recycling domestic and industrial refuse. Demag process cranes perform the handling operations between the individual process steps, such as automated cranes which store incoming refuse and feed it to shredders and composting boxes.
Complete industrial drive solutions provide for precise operating motions in our crane installations. Demag motors are also used to drive the conveyor belts that are used in recycling facilities to separate the useful materials.
