Scales and Weighing Equipment for Mechanical Biological Treatment

Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) plants are used to treat residual municipal waste by a combination of mechanical and biological processes. MBT plants were developed with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of landfilling residual waste, in line with the EU Landfill Directive, putting measurement, sampling and recording of weights at the heart of any MBT operation.

Monitoring and sorting of incoming waste streams, ongoing sampling and monitoring, as well as measurement of outputs such as biodegradable municipal waste (BMW), Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) all rely on having accurate and robust weighing equipment.

Monitoring the weight and profitability of waste has never been more essential and weight data collection is key to operational efficiency. Weighbridge management systems play a pivotal role, acting as critical control points for vehicles delivering and collecting materials from sites.
