What is Material Recovery Facility?

A waste materials recovery facility is a large scale waste material recycling plant or equipment which is capable of recycling and recovering the waste materials through waste sorting and recycling to realize the reusing of waste materials.

What Does Materials Recovery Facility Do?

Usually, waste recycling machine shall both have the abilities to sort all kinds of waste materials and recycling them into useful things.

Sorting and Separation

Using an MSW sorting plant to classify the municipal solid waste into different kinds according to their natures, features, raw materials and following processing ways, etc.

Waste Sorting Process

Processing flow:

1. The truck unloads the waste materials onto the loading platform and workers pick out the large materials like furniture, wood branches and construction waste.

2. The rest materials will go to the plate feeder, where a spreader is equipped at the end of the feeder to make the materials even and uniform on the conveyor.

3. And then the materials will go to the manual sorting platform and the workers pick out large stones, branches and hazardous waste.

4. The rest will go to the rotatory screening machine. Through the bores with a diameter of 50 mm inside the machine, oversize material (≥50 mm) and undersized materials (≤50 mm) will be separated.

5. The undersized materials are usually organisms. They will go to the suspended magnetic separator and the irony matters will be sorted out. The oversize materials will also go to the magnetic separator and get the irony tins and cans out.

6. After that, the oversized materials will go to the bad breaker and the comprehensive winnowing machine. In the winnowing machine, they will be classified into three main kinds: light plastic, heavy materials (bricks and stones, glasses, etc ) and the rest materials (combustible materials like hard plastic, rubber products, fabrics, and wet paper, etc).


Using follow-up materials recycling facility including the waste processing machines like waste pyrolysis machine and charcoal machine. They are used to turn the sorted materials into “treasure”.

Waste recycling process:

Waste Pyrolysis Plant: using the technology of pyrolysis to turn solid waste like rubber tires, rubber products, sewage sludge and plastic into fuel oil and carbon black, etc. You can click the following picture to get more details of the plant:

Charcoal Manufacturing Machine: using the technology of carbonization and pyrolysis to turn all the organisms and green waste into biochar. For example, except for the organic waste separated from the waste materials, coconut shells, palm kernel shells, sawdust, wood chips and sewage sludge can all be the feedstock of this kind of machine.

The organism can also be sent to a composting workshop.

Other Materials’ Recycling Methods:

Metal: recycled in the iron and steel making factory

Bricks and stones: produce new bricks

Other combustible materials (fabrics, clothes and branches): produce RDF (Rubbish Derivative Fuel)
