Eldan on hand to talk recycling at Reifen 2012
According to Ulrika Persson, global marketing coordinator at Eldan Recycling A/S, at Reifen 2012 the Danish company intends to focus on its new system for recycling mining tyres and further improved systems for steel cleaning. “Last year we also introduced a combi-system for recycling of tyre, cable and electronic waste, which we also plan to focus on,” shared Persson. “As always we will also present our standard equipment, which is always popular to discuss.”
Speaking about the company’s tyre sector activities, Eldan managing director Toni Reftman stated “within the field of tyre recycling we have developed new techniques for making black crumb from car tyres. We have also developed steel cleaning lines that make it possible to efficiently increase the value of the steel wire component. These newly developed systems, in addition to our existing solutions, all make Eldan the most competitive supplier of tyre recycling solutions in the world.” Reftman added that last year the company began promoting various solutions for tyre chip production for tyre derived fuel (TDF), and over the year sold several large TDF installations, including to the largest cement factories in Pakistan.
“We are also proud to say that we’ve now introduced our Heavy Granulator series for alternative fuel production,” Reftman continued. “The introduction of the product onto the market has been a great success, and we are doing well against the traditional German and Austrian alternatives. Over the year Eldan has sold and installed equipment and complete recycling lines all over the world, and we can proudly say that we are stronger and larger than our main competitors.”
In its 56 years in the business, Eldan has delivered some 830 complete systems and 7,100 single machines to customers around the world. Recent projects the company has been involved in include delivery of a fully automated tyre recycling plant in India: In January, Gujarat-based S&J Granulate Solutions started production in its new automated Eldan Recycling tyre recycling plant. The plant has currently the highest capacity of any such facility in India and is capable of processing up to 5,000 kilogrammes of shredded used tyres per production hour. The resulting granulated rubber is 99.9 per cent free of steel and textiles. “Tyre recycling in India is a very interesting market for Eldan Recycling, and we are happy that S & J Granulate Solutions also see the same potential in this area within the coming years,” shared Henning Nørgaard, territory manager at Eldan Recycling.
