UNTHA UK recently appeared in a construction and demolition feature, in the Waste Management World publication. If you missed it, you can read the article in full here…
Construction and demolition (c&d) waste comprises some of the toughest materials that many operators not only consider difficult to process and reduce in volume but, in many cases, economically ‘unshreddable’.
From problematics skip waste to demotion material – such as wood, non-ferrous extrusions, composite panels work and structures, and more – this is typically unsorted, which can add an additional dimension of complexity for operators.
Following 24 months of rigorous industry research and development, UNTHA’s new two shaft shredder the ZR made its official UK debut in September 2021.
The high-performance ZR series comprises two machines – the ZR2400H and ZR2400W – which have been specifically engineered for multi-shift, continuous pre-shredding, even when handling difficult materials.
Additionally, the machine’s low speed, high torque drive means it can process severe duty applications with ease, for a high level of plant availability. And the modular, quick-change cutting table design presents versatility at the core.
Both pre-shredders are also supplied with the UNTHA Eco Power Drive with water-cooled synchronous motors – an energy-efficient concept which has become globally renowned for its ability to reduce energy consumption by up to 75%.
UNTHA UK is the UK division of the Austrian-headquartered globally renowned industrial shredding specialist, UNTHA.

Further information about the machines (if needed)
The ZR2400H has been engineered for the high throughput, rough shredding of bulky waste, C&I waste, waste wood, MSW, mattresses, carpets, railway sleepers, bales and rolled goods. Available as a static or mobile machine with crawler tracks, the goal for this model is volume reduction (90% <300mm), material breakdown for further treatment, and alternative fuel production. This cutting system is therefore perfect for cement plants, operators in the biomass and energy recovery industries, MRFs, sorting and waste disposal firms.
The ZR2400W is the perfect metal scrap shredder and excels also in the processing of WEEE and large domestic appliances. Again, the goal is to achieve a rough material breakdown (90% <300mm) for downstream sorting, making this the ideal machine for metal processors, recyclers, and aluminium and metal manufacturers.
