To increase efficiency in the recycling process of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) ARCO developed a completely new installation for the Coolrec plant in Dordrecht in cooperation with the customer. The installation consists of a receiving hopper, conveyor of 15 meters, sorting cabin with 10 workstations and various small conveyors. Click here to read the full Coolrec business case.
The new process can be divided into several phases:
Phase 1 of the process starts with the receiving hopper wherein Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) will be deposited with a loader. The bulk hopper ensures that the products flow in an equal amount on the conveyor.
In phase 2, the conveyor belt transports goods between the hopper and the sorting cabin, which is 6 meters above ground level. In order to minimize influences of the weather, both the bulk hopper and the conveyor belt provided with covering.
Phase 3 starts in the sorting cabin where WEEE be manually disassembled and durable materials are separated from each other. The sorting cabin is at 6 meters above containers in which sustainable materials such as wood, copper and iron are deposited from the sorting cabin. In this way, an operator can separate durable materials quick and in an efficient manner. The recycled materials are transported by container. Residual waste is discharged from the sorting cabin by means of a conveyor belt.
