New opportunities for the waste and recycling industry are being opened in Poland thanks to economic growth and major investments in construction projects, according to Danish recycling equipment manufacturer, Eldan Recycling.
According to the company inquiries show that an increasing number of companies want a piece of the valuable “recycling cake”.
“The past five years we have noticed a steady increase in requests from Poland” commented Toni Reftman managing director at Eldan Recycling. “Within cable recycling we have noticed an increase in both quotes and orders for small and medium capacity systems, as well as for solutions for further recovery of fine copper from insulation.
“Also within tyre recycling we notice a trend in further improving the end-product,” Reftman. “A further cleaned steel fraction with a density of up to 0.7 is very desirable with European steel works.”
The company’s local representative, Tomasz Kajzer at Rub-Met agrees: “The recycling industry in Poland has for a long while consisted of a few key players – mainly within large capacity tyre recycling and cable/electronics recycling.”
However, he said that Eldan is now being contacted by investors looking for equipment in those areas, as well as others such as the production of Residual Derived Fuel [RDF] and aluminium scrap processing.
Processing of Off The Road (OTR) tyres was also said to be generating more interest than in the past years.
“So far sales have been really good this year,” continued Rub-Met. “On top of that we still have a few projects which we expect to be finalised before the end of the year.”
“The recycling industry in Poland is certainly blooming!” he concluded.
