Torxx Kinetic Pulverizer Limited Introduces Revolutionary Waste Processing Technology

Torxx Kinetic Pulverizer Limited will showcase its  Kinetic Pulverizer (KP) at the annual Canadian Waste and Recycling Expo in Mississauga, Ontario on November 19 and 20, 2014 at the International Centre. The KP is a tested and proven high-efficiency technology revolutionizing waste processing for both government and private sector businesses. With the growing need for sustainable waste management practices, the KP provides significant benefits for a wide variety of industries including landfill management; transportation; construction and demolition; recycling; product destruction and waste-to-energy systems.

The KP is a robust, powerful system capable of destroying the most demanding of waste materials. In fractions of a second, large volumes of waste and other materials are deconstructed into a fine homogeneous fluff or shattered into small predefined particle sizes, depending on the feedstock. This innovative self- attrition process allows for greater compaction, extending the life of landfills by up to four times, and providing for more waste to be transported by fewer trucks. Both ferrous and non-ferrous materials are better processed for recycling; wood is more effectively prepared for waste-to-energy applications, and asphalt shingles are more readily repurposed for road surfacing. With the demand for higher throughput/ more efficient recycling technologies, the KP facilitates the process by pulverizing metals, glass, plastics and electronics for more efficient shipping and storage. In waste-to-energy applications, the KP processes waste to optimal particle sizes and maximum surface area;, producing feedstock that delivers more complete combustion, higher heating values, and lower emissions.
