That meant there were new material flows to be treated, and the company developed its first Topturn compost turner. Nowadays, the company has more than 3.000 customers in almost 70 countries worldwide, with the approach of being a solution provider instead of “just” a machine builder. Today, the product range comprises more than 30 different machine types covering the essential process steps of modern waste treatment – shredding and separation – thus making a valuable contribution to CO2 reduction and to improving the environment.

The low operating costs and high flexibility make the BIVITEC e+ with its reduced dynamic forces interesting for any recyclers who have to deal with fluctuating input material properties like for screening packaging material, PET flakes, compost and waste wood.


ESWET – European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology

ESWET (European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology) is the European association representing manufacturers in the field of Waste-to-Energy Technology.

The purpose of ESWET is to raise awareness of the positive implications of the technology in terms of better waste management, energy and the environment and, thus, to foster the development and the dissemination of Waste-to-Energy technology at the European level.

Technology from ESWET members is the heart in most of the Waste-to-Energy plants in Europe, treating non-recyclable municipal solid waste. This technology is also used by most plants worldwide.
