Smart waste station
1. Integrated waste separation
The development of the compact MT-Waste Transfer Station enables the buildings to be smaller, saving costs for both valuable land and the building. The advanced innovations in MetroTaifun® technology also reduce the necessary waste conveying airflow, sound- and odour level as well as the energy consumption to a third, enabling smaller equipment to be used.
Waste is conveyed via an underground pipe network from MT-Waste collection stations (inlets) to a central MT-Waste transfer station, where the waste is separated from the conveying air. The waste is automatically distributed to separate waste containers for each fraction. The spoiler front shape of the MT-Containers reduces the height in the waste transfer station when tilted. The fuel consumption is also reduced by 10% during truck transport.
