Abstract

This publication describes a possibility to utilize concepts known from agricultural balers for compacting other types of materials, typically used beverage containers and other types of objects known from the retail business. Compacting used materials in the retail business is a common method to reduce handling cost. It reduces the time consumed by store employees handling the different waste streams, i.e. cardboard, plastic films, used beverage containers and other types of waste. Round balers from the farming industry proves to have several beneficial properties possible to utilize within the above mentioned waste streams. Present hay baling concepts can be adapted to puncture and/or compact empty beverage containers made of several different materials. This can be done by using a combination of stationary and moving rollers possibly combined with a rubber belt to roll up and compress the above mentioned materials. In this work we will develop a storage unit based on the concepts used for hay-baling to compact and create bales of either metals, plastics or mixed materials. The new balers can either be adapted to fit existing solutions, or scaled to fit future requirements.
