WSM's Organics Processing Systems starts with batch feeding of incoming waste material, high volume grinding and screening with WSM’s high capacity Titan Trommel. Material is sorted to remove metals, plastics and other recyclables.

Industry Challenges & Opportunities

  • Millions of tons of food goes unused or wasted in the US every year

  • The right approach diverts organics from landfills

  • Convert organics into renewable energy, compost, soil amendments, and other marketable products

  • Using organics waste recycling equipment reduces methane emissions to help reduce the effects of climate change

Materials Processed

Organic waste comes from a variety of sources and encompasses material including food waste, green waste (leaves, grass, etc.), agricultural residuals, and mixed waste with organics.

Count on WSM's experience in engineering and manufacturing the organic waste grinders, organic waste screeners, and Organics Processing System equipment that the largest producers rely on to convert organics into products like feedstock for compost, anaerobic digestion conversion, soil amendment, and biogas. With decades of application expertise and our in-house testing, you can count on WSM's experienced team to configure the best machine or system for your operation.

Organics Processing

The focus on diverting organic material including leaves, grass, agricultural crop residuals, and food waste from landfills and converting it into environmentally friendly, sustainable products continues to increase. To successfully meet this demand, the grinding, screening, and processing machinery needs to be able to withstand this abrasive and corrosive environment while having the versatility to handle diverse raw material types.

With a WSM Organics Processing System, you can convert high volumes of green waste, food waste, and mixed organics into high-quality feedstock for compost, AD (anaerobic digestion) conversion, soil amendment, biogas, or biofuels with WSM's individual components or Stationary Organics Processing Systems. With processing rates from 200-200 TPH, these field-proven machines and systems can help you streamline the process. Whether you are new to organics processing or ready to upgrade your capabilities, find out how WSM's approach can help you get the right equipment to simplify your operation, minimize handling, labor, and energy requirements for low "per ton" processing costs.
