Binder+Co sells 2100th
BIVITEC screen

The bestseller BIVITEC celebrates a
remarkable anniversary

It is operating on six continents, is used in
mining as well as in recycling and screens
hundreds of thousands of tons of different
products every hour. We are talking about
the BIVITEC flip-flow-screen from Binder+Co.

The BIVITEC screening machine was developed in the 1980s to process difficult to screen coal and is particularly in demand when it comes to difficult tasks that cannot be handled by conventional vibratory screens. To this day, the BIVITEC flip-flow-screen is a bestseller of Binder+Co, with around 100 units manufactured and delivered worldwide every year.

In November 2018, the 2100th BIVITEC screening machine was successfully accepted by its future owner, Ing. Hans Lang GmbH. Hans Lang GmbH, is one of the most important construction companies in Tyrol and is Western Austria's leading producer of construction materials. And as such, the company attaches particular importance to the highest product quality. "This can only be achieved with reliable machines and plants. We appreciate the professionalism with which Binder+Co works," says Hans-Peter Schuler, authorised signatory and business division manager for building materials. The anniversary machine is not the first machine that the Tyrolean company buys from Binder+Co. The Styrian technology is already being used to the customer's satisfaction in several plants.

CEO Martin Pfeffer thanked Hans-Peter Schuler for his loyalty with a spare parts voucher for EUR 2,100. The Binder+Co employees were invited to the traditional “Leberkäsejause” in the round hall to celebrate the 2,100 BIVITEC.

A reason to celebrate - the bestseller from Binder+Co was sold 2100 times! Markus Muhr, Project Manager, Heinz Raith, Sales Austria, Christian Buelacher, Hans-Peter Schuler and Martin Geisler from Ing. Hans Lang GmbH and Martin Pfeffer, Member of the Management Board of Binder+Co AG.

Norway’s container glass
recycled with technology
from Binder+Co

Sirkel Materialgjenvinning AS from Oslo, recently
commissioned Binder+Co for the delivery of a
recycling plant for glass in Fredrikstad. This
installation will be the most modern one of its
type and can process 45 tons of collected glass
and metal per hour. The glass is sorted as of a
size of 5 mm into different coloured products
(clear, green and brown glass), and metal is
sorted into ferrous and non-ferrous fractions.

The recycling company from Norway has used technology from Binder+Co for more than 25 years. Hence, not only was the existing waste glass recovery plant from the year 1992 designed, built and subsequently expanded several times by Binder+Co, but know-how from Binder+Co is also used in the customer’s plant for foam glass production with the DRYON fluidized bed dryer.

The new plant will provide Sirkel Materialgjenvinning with the greatest possible flexibility in the processing of its products. Depending on the requirement, the customer can recover the entire quantity of recycled glass in the highest quality for sale, or use part of the glass cullet for foam glass production. With this concept, Binder+Co ensures the maximum material yield for Sirkel Materialgjenvinning.

“This order substantiates our market leadership in the recovery of waste glass and, at almost EUR 14 million, it is the biggest order awarded to Binder+Co in the recycling area,” says  Jörg Rosegger, Member of the Executive Board of Binder+Co AG. “Through our broad range of machines for processing bulk material, we are able to supply the complete process to Sirkel Materialgjenvinning, from glass crushing, continuing with screening and cullet sublimation up to sensor-based sorting.” In order to optimally prepare the waste cullet for sorting Binder+Co has developed cullet sublimation. The essential process steps are: drying, cleaning, polishing and dust removal.

In Norway, glass and metal cans are logistically collected together. Therefore, both recyclable materials are processed in the new plant. Besides pre-treatment with screening, metal separation, comminution and organic separation, the plant includes metals processing by separation of ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as the so-called cullet sublimation, which is decisive for the efficiency of the subsequent sorting stages of the coarse and fine fractions.

The sorting stages with 16 CLARITY sensor-based systems are the heart of the plant. They produce mono-fractions of flint, green and brown glass cullet. The glass is separated of any interfering glass ceramics and leaded glass with patented UV technology.

In this project, Binder+Co takes over both the machine technology as well as delivery of the complete plant from the structural steelwork up to extensive peripherals such as pipelines, chutes and electrical installations. Acceptance of the waste glass recycling plant is slated for the end of September 2019.

Binder+Co wins 14th
Styrian export award

On June 7, 2018, the 14th Styrian
Export Day took place in Graz.
As a highlight, the Styrian export
prices were awarded for this occasion.
47 flagship companies from all over
Styria applied for the Styrian export
price in the categories "small, medium
and large enterprises". Binder+Co
prevailed against its competitors in the
category "large enterprises" with the
project "ruby sorting with the MINEXX
sorting system" and thus wins the
14th Styrian export price.


Through close cooperation with international specialists, local partners and tailor-made solutions for our customers, Binder+Co is currently one of the leading manufacturers of sorting systems, which are also used in the primary raw material sector. Increasing demand and the associated need for the sorting of optically similar and optically indistinguishable material placed the focus of the research and development department on sensor-based sorting. In 2017, Binder+Co sold the first MINEXX sorting machines for sorting rubies to one of the world's largest suppliers of colored gemstones.

For 124 years, Binder+Co has been active as a mechanical and plant engineering company in the primary and secondary raw materials industry. 370 global employees contribute to global success and ensure an export ratio of well over 90 %. In 2017 alone, deliveries were made to more than 64 countries. The production site located in Gleisdorf gives Binder+Co the flexibility and quality that is in demand internationally. Binder+Co is an excellently connected company with five subsidiaries and more than 40 distribution partners. The short way to the customer is always focused.

Successful implementation
of the first CLARITY multiway
in the USA

By mid-May 2018 the CLARITY multiway sorting system
for light packaging waste has been successfully launched
in the USA at our customer Carry All Products Inc. (CAP).
Binder+Co thus takes an important step in recycling of
plastic waste.

Details about the CLARITY multiway:
The CLARITY multiway sorting system is now in use in Connelsville, PA for single-stream processing. The machine, designed as a three-way system, sorts two end products from two tons of mixed plastic per hour, which are sold for reuse. The NIR technology (near-infrared) sorting system uses a single sensor to produce a high-quality PET and a high-quality HDPE fraction.
Binder + Co and CAP have been working together for over 20 years: CAP operates three glass recycling plants in Pennsylvania (Allentown, Connelsville and Mt. Pleasant) exclusively with Binder+Co machines. In total, this results in about 30 CLARITY sorting systems!

Binder+Co at
IFAT 2018

The branch of environmental
technology is currently booming.
This fact became apparent for
Binder+Co at IFAT in Munich:
Strongly increased interest and
higher visitor numbers speak clarly
for this.

The new trash-import-regulation of China and the consequent stop of imports of lightwaste of western industry states has made it necessary for Binder+Co to step up and respond to: So the current market problems served as a starting point for our product development.
Binder+Co now presented at IFAT the CLARITY multiway sorting sytem for light packaging waste, which produces up to five high-quality fractions (and one extra pass through) with just one sensor. Thus, the required product qualities of the secondary raw material can be ensured and a continued use of plastic waste is enabled.
The popularity and demand of our visitors at IFAT has shown that we are on the right path. Space-saving solutions that are versatile in customization and guarantee high product qualities are contemporary and the technology of the future.
From this perspective IFAT was a complete success for Binder+Co!
At the same time as the oscar
ceremony, the awarding of the
"WirtschaftsOskar" took place.
We are very proud to announce,
that Binder+Co has been awarded
in the category "Trendsetter". 🏆

Launer, President & CEO of Binder+Co

Embassy Mr. Walter Koren

Binder + Co sets new standards for glass recycling in the US. New regulations on "zero waste" policy make the State of Colorado a perfect starting point for the technology of Binder+Co. Using CLARITY, a state-of-the-art sensor-based sorting system, 80.000 tons of glass cullet become reusable bottles per year. The glass recycling quota in Colorado rises from 6.25 to 21.65 percent.
In future the partnership with the largest waste glass processor in the US, Strategic Materials, promises a sustainable and steep success curve.
