American Company Delivers Shredders to Industrial Waste-Power Plant in Thailand

May 2020

SSI Shredding Systems, based in Oregon, US, has delivered three shredders to Thai enterprise SCG Cement-Building Products Co Ltd, which will use the machines for its fuel line installed at an industrial waste-fed power plant in Map Ta Phut, in Rayong Province, handling both hazardous and non-hazardous materials. SCG Cement-Building Products is part of Siam Cement Group (SCG) Thailand’s largest producer of construction materials.

SSI supplied two Quad Q145SD model quad-shaft shredders and one Pri-Max PR4200S shredder. According to SSI, the machines were selected for their ability to process a wide variety of materials, including those with high moisture content and heavy contamination, as well as for their reliability. The Pri-Max model will be used as a primary reducer, allowing for the bulk feeding of commingled waste to produce flowable, sortable output at rates up to 15 tons per hour. The Quad shredders will produce the final product.

The installation of the three shredders started in March 2020, with plans for the industrial waste-powered plant to start full operation in the first half of 2020. It is expected that they will process as much as 65,000 tons of industrial waste each year. According to SGS, the Map Ta Phut plant is the first of its kind in South East Asia to use Japanese-based technology for gasification and ash melting.
