3WAYSTE® offers a smart solution to the global garbage challenge.
Despite reduced packaging, segregation at source, recycling and composting, global waste statistics are sobering.
Recycling in the most advanced economies is only 40%, segregation at source even less. Some predict that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans.
Considering that alternatives are often less green and more costly, 3WAYSTE® offers an attractive solution both in terms of environmental and economic performance.
The 90% recovery and diversion rate achieved by 3WAYSTE® means better recycling, less landfilling, less incineration of precious resources and less greenhouse gas emissions.
If all the garbage trucks of a single day lined up, they would form a line long enough to circumvent the earth.
The 3WAYSTE® technology changes the way we deal with the rising mountains of municipal solid waste.
In most settings, more than 90% of waste can be recovered to produce quality end products for the local circular economy.
Our patented bag opener opens garbage bags of any size without damaging materials. The design guarantees safe, robust and energy efficient operation with a diversity of materials and sizes.
The 3-way separation into biodegradable, small non-biodegradable and large non-biodegradable channels occurs with great precision, sorting dirty or sticky objects, objects with tendency to clog as well as objects of various weights.
At the end of the 3WAYSTE® process, you recycle more and get A+ rated compost as natural fertilizer and a high calorific value combustible to meet a variety of renewable energy needs.
The standard processing capacity is 20t/hour (120,000t/year) but can be increased by adding additional channels.
Operating costs are very competitive due to process innovations and automations and low energy and water consumption.
3WAYSTE® is the result of 10 years of R&D. At our Technology Center we continue to invest in R&D to realize our dream that one day 100% of waste can be valorized for benefit of local economies and the planet.
Our technology has been awarded the Sustainable Development Trophy 2017 for its role in permitting the Le Puy agglomeration in Southern France to achieve a waste recovery and recycling rate of 92% (2016), compared to the national average of 40%.
3WAYSTE permits communities and entire
countries to comply with and often exceed
the most stringent policies and rules.
