The Wilson System®

This is a new steam treatment process, using existing autoclaving and steam boiler technologies.  One of the unique advantages of the technology is its capacity to size-reduce waste by up to 80% of its original volume.  It also sanitises and de-labels metals, allows for the extraction of plastics, and at the same time breaks down biodegradable materials into homogeneous cellulose rich fibres, Wilson Fibre®.  The system is capable of handling non-hazardous solid waste, through an automatic reception, transfer and processing operation.

Process Overview

  1. Arrival of waste.

Reception of unsorted waste. There will be an inspection and manual extraction of oversized items .

 

2. Steam Treatment.

Autoclave will treat 20 tonnes of unsorted MSW with a dry, saturated steam.

 

3. Post Treatment Separation.

Screening out the Wilson Fibre® from other collected sale products by automatic and/or manual methods.

 4. Fibre output.

The fibre is screened and when required can be dried and refined. Wilson Fibre® (renewable fuel) is then sold/used for renewable power generation.
