The Challenge Achieved

The TAIM WESER installation consists of a Mechanical-Biological Treatment (MBT) plant for the composting of the organic fraction of the MSW, with 154.000 ton of capacity per year. The waste is stabilized by fully automated trapezoidal stack turning systems in two enclosed fermentation halls with a process aeration system, an infeed system and stack turning machines. The final product is suitable for landscaping or gardening and meets European Standards.
