Komptech is a leading international technology supplier of machinery and systems for the mechanical and mechanical-biological treatment of solid waste and the treatment of biomass as a renewable energy source.
The company was founded in 1992. Even the reason behind it was innovative, since that was the year that the Austrian region of Styria became one of the first in Europe to introduce the separate collection of biodegradable waste. 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.
