Waste & Recycling

The waste management and recycling industry involves a wide variety of sorting and processing activities that range from labor intensive hand picking operations to highly mechanised or technically complex processes. Whatever the method used, processes involved in the waste handling and recycling operation will generate dust.

The chosen method of filtration will depend on many factors such as the nature of the waste, the ease of segregation and the treatment stage. Donaldson offers the waste handling industry a wide product range of efficient and innovative filtration solutions for dust collection and flue gas cleaning.

Our solutions strongly keep pace with challenges faced by the waste management industry, including a growing need for improving health and safety and to achieve improved performance.
