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.
