The intention of the toner cartridge recycling plant is the safe separation of the toner powder from the solid fractions to ensure a safe further treatment of the fractions. Our main focus with this concept is on explosion safety. To ensure this, we have integrated three safety levels into the system.
The long-standing business relationship between URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH and GEM High-tech Co., Limited from China developed into a friendship some years ago. In a crisis friends are helping each other. URT has offered GEM its help in the crisis. When Prof. Xu, CEO of GEM, heard from missing protection equipment in Germany he did not hesitate to offer URT to donate over 30 000 protecting masks, gloves and protection suits. This equipment is delivered to medical facilities in the area where the URT factory is located.
In the second quarter of 2020 URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH is delivering a fridge disposal plant to their Polish client Terra Recycling (Elemental Holding SA). Currently the pre-assembly takes place at the URT factory in Karlstadt, Germany. The plant is able to recover all kinds of blowing agents and refrigerants. By sorting, solid fractions with highest purity will be achieved. The plant will be able to reach all parameters of the present CENELEC standard.
The in Karlstadt based URT Umwelt- und Recyclingtechnik GmbH was again able to achieve a positive energy balance in 2019. With our own photovoltaic system on the assembly and production halls, significantly more electricity was generated than was consumed during this period. In addition to self-consumption, approx. 75.000 kWh were fed into the power net. This means that not only the plants built by URT make their contribution to environmental protection worldwide, but also the company's own photovoltaic system.
On January 22 and 23, 2020, URT will be represented again with a stand at the IERC (International Electronics Recycling Congress) in Salzburg, Austria. Mr. Peter Heßler (Managing Director), Mr. Bernhard Biener (Technical Director), Mr. Gerhard Gerne (URT - Representative Spain and Africa) and Mr. Florian Heßler (Sales Engineer) are looking forward to welcome you on our booth No. 7.
