Destroying returned goods with expired date and faulty manufacture to avoid products being resold is necessary for breweries, dairies and other manufacturers of drinks in beverage cartons. RUNI screw compactor is the perfect solution for beverage destruction and the machine handles both compacting and separation of your beverage waste in one process – creating two waste streams. The liquid is pressed through a suitable hole matrix and can go directly into the drain or be collected and used for animal feed or energy production. The compacted beverage waste is now so dry that it can go for incineration or sold for recycling. Recycling of beverage waste is increasing these years as recycling and circular economy is getting more and more important.
Beverage cartons are mainly produced of carton with a protective layer (foil laminate or aluminum coating) on the inside - keeping the cartons dry and the liquid fresh. This has caused problems when recycling the beverage waste to separate these different layers. But an increasing number of specialized recycling plants have the solution for recycling of both the carton and the protective layer.
