​Kreider Mulch leans heavily on Doppstadt machines for organics processing efficiency

Kreider Mulch is the proud owner of the first SM 720SA trommel manufactured by Germany-based Doppstadt , along with multiple AK model horizontal grinders, and most recently, a DW 3060 slow-speed shredder.

Randy Kreider grew up in Lancaster, a quaint small town in rural eastern Pennsylvania. Unless you're inside the urban boundaries of Philadelphia, most of this half of the state is economically driven by agriculture and other natural products. As the owner of Kreider Mulch, Randy has been able to capitalize on those opportunities, turning this once-small bark mulch lot into a successful business that produces more than 150,000 yards annually. He recently built a robust topsoil operation to complement the mulch products.

Canadian wood recycling sector positions itself for growth

The Canadian Wood Waste Recycling Business Group supports the “cascading use” model, whereby wood is recovered for the next most valuable alternative.

There's a lot more to wood recycling than shredding, screening and grinding. The state of wood recycling continues to evolve, according to Jim Donaldson, CEO of the Alberta-based Canadian Wood Waste Recycling Business Group (CWWR). Practices are well established in the forest industry for converting sawmill residuals into fibre applications such as pulp and paper and waste-to-energy, but overall, the development of wood recycling in Canada is still in its infancy.

More power, longer service life and a magnet that attracts everything to it: Doppstadt improves the DZ 750 universal shredder

Doppstadt is now offering its DZ 750 Combi universal shredder with even more powerful components. This combination shredder is designed to handle even the most demanding applications, and now not only has a new, efficient drive unit, but also an even higher metal separation rate and an intelligent hydraulic control system. Its new Volvo  Penta engine provides around 700 HP for pre-shredding and supplementary shredding tasks. This machine really comes into its own when shredding heavily contaminated material. The slow-running pre-shredding process efficiently breaks down the material so that the new main magnet can easily separate out any large iron parts. The fast-running supplementary shredding process then produces a marketable end product. Thanks to its 1,000 litre diesel tank, this machine can even cope with long days of continuous operation.
