As we come to the end of 2021, we’re looking back on the media headlines for UNTHA UK over the last three months. The nations collective environmental impact has taken centre stage recently – not least because of COP26 – as the sustainability agenda dominates the media and countries start to pledge their commitment to zero waste strategies and drastic carbon reduction. There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the waste management and environmental sector.
So sit back, grab a brew, and review our highlights…
We launched our new two-shaft pre-shredder – the mighty ZR2400
In September, we revealed our new high-performance ZR pre-shredder following 24 months of rigorous industry research and development. This dual shaft machine is specifically engineered for multi-shift, continuous pre-shredding – even when tackling difficult materials that some would consider ‘unshreddable’ – opening up a whole new world of shredding possibilities.
Big news directly from our customer sites
We’ve had some great customer stories hit the headlines too. Most recently, we revealed that Lancashire Waste Recycling had invested in its 10th shredder, making it the largest UNTHA fleet within an independent business in the UK. Materials Handling World alongside Tyres and Rubber Recycling shared the news that four UNTHA XR3000C static waste shredders, an XR2000, three XR3000XCs, and a mobile XR3000C-HT with high torque drive, had now been joined by UNTHA’s new XR3000RC, as demand rockets.
Environmental Expert also announced that hazardous waste specialist Malary, had bolstered its recycling capabilities with the investment in a second heavy duty four-shaft RS UNTHA shredder.
Skip Hire Magazine also picked up the story, sharing that the new machine addition would assist in boosting the environmental and commercial efficiencies of the Malary facility – with the UNTHA shredders at the heart of the operation.
Innovation spotlight on demolition waste
Demolition and Recycling International (D&RI) recently interviewed our managing director, Marcus Brew, on waste innovation technologies – looking specifically at how engineering progress could further transform the demolition sector.
Advancements in ‘waste’ machinery are happening at pace and are changing what is possible when it comes to transforming even the bulkiest and most complex wastes into valuable resources that can be diverted from landfill and utilised with maximum respect for the waste hierarchy.
In October, we also hosted our biggest shredder showcase event ever – a four-day opportunity for customers and industry professionals to come and see what our machines are really capable of. If you missed the action, you can catch-up here…
