Riverside Welcomes Interest in RDF

Riverside Waste Machinery

Since unveiling revolutionary new technology for the processing of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) last September, Riverside Waste Machinery has been busy dealing with the exceptionally positive interest shown in its new product range.

“We were pretty confident that the new UNTHA TR series would be well received but are absolutely thrilled with just how much of a stir it has caused,” commented Riverside’s managing director Chris Oldfield.

“Europe has the largest energy from waste market which illustrates that thecapabilities exist to meet EU Landfill Diversion targets. However recent statistics have shown that the UK’s overall approach to waste management is trailing behind, so to see so much interest in a pioneering new concept is very encouraging.

“These are very interesting times for the waste technology industry and companies like ours – who can supply innovative technologies for effectively processing waste – are beginning to see an increase in demand. We generated 150 different leads at the RWM exhibition which means we are now quoting for £17m of shredding technology. This clearly shows that more and more companies are looking for efficient and cost-effective alternative solutions to utilising waste.

Riverside are the UK’s sole distributor of UNTHA’S pioneering waste shredding technology –  the first machines of their kind to be offered to the UK’s secondary shredding market. Showcasing a variety of benefits – many designed to save money and improve profitability – the TR series includes:

  • The satisfaction of environmental obligations – to turn domestic, commercial and industrial waste into alternative fuel sources
  • High reliability and increased uptime – quick change cutting system enables easy replacement of cutters in less than 45 minutes compared to a typical 8 hours repair process for traditional machines
  • Automatic foreign object detection – eliminates damage to the shredder from material not designed to be shredded, reduces down time removing foreign objects and is safer for the operator. With competitors’ machines the operator is required to climb into the machine to scoop out the foreign object
  • Simplicity of maintenance procedures – ease of accessibility to machine parts for fast servicing
  • An energy-saving drive system – one of the most energy efficient on the market
  • Cost and time savings – cheaper per tonne of rubbish giving better return on investment
