MSW is typically collected at the curb side and sent to a transfer station for recycling. This method still sends up 55% of waste to landfill based on US average.
By implementing the Wilson System®, customers will see a drastic reduction in the amount waste being sent to landfill. Rather than burying the waste, 90%+ of the waste is diverted and subsequently treated using our hyper-speed composting autoclave. The organic portion of waste will be turned into Wilson Fiber® and the remaining recyclables such as glass, plastics, and metals are sterilized and ready for resale within the recycling market. After processing, there is as little as 5-7% of waste that cannot be reused or recycled which can safely be put into landfill.
It’s time to modernize the waste sector.
A sustainable practice that transfer
station and landfill owners will profit from.
Start getting paid for the organic fraction of MSW that compromises up to 70% of your waste
Reduce transport fees and only transfer up to 5% of MSW that is not converted by our system
A way to greatly reduce operating costs and extend the life of landfill sites
Recyclables are sanitized and volume is reduced by up to 75%, making it easier to transport and more valuable
The Wilson System® Process
Arrival of waste
Unsorted waste arrives at the reception and physically inspected. Any large or unsuitable items are manually extracted before processing.
MSW from the tipping floor will be delivered via an in-feed conveyor. On average a batch weight of 20 tonnes will be delivered into the body of the autoclave whilst it is rotating in the loading direction. The automatic closure system is manually initiated to ensure all automatic, manual interlocks and several other safety protocols are successfully met.
The central control system engages steam charging and waste is treated at 160 C for 40 minutes for optimal processing. During the charging and processing period, the autoclave will continue to rotate, driven by a hydraulic system.
Processing complete, several fail-safe safety protocols are engaged to ensure depressurization is achieved. Material is discharged from the autoclave and is removed by an out-feed conveyor system.
There are several high level screening processes engaged for a thorough separation of materials. The organic fraction of the waste, now Wilson Fiber®, is easily separated from other recyclables such as glass, plastic and metal which are ready for resale.
After screening, Wilson Fiber® can be dried and refined for sale as a feedstock for renewable energy power generation.
