The Dominator Waste Depackaging Machine

About Rowan and The Dominator Waste Depackaging Machine:

Rowan is a family run company who pride themselves on their integrity. With 40 years in the industry, they work with their customer’s best interests as our their priority. Rowan has developed The Dominator Waste Depackaging machine, designed to separate outer packaging and its contents. Allowing the reuse of waste that would have otherwise been sent straight to landfill. The machine is also able to depackage wet waste.

With the increasing problem of waste, many companies are finding ways of reusing this waste. Unfortunately, some of this waste can’t be accepted straight into the manufactures process and requires some degree of separation or removal of outer packaging. The waste depackaging process is key to getting suitable material into anaerobic digestion plants and also used in putting food back into animal feeds. The Dominator Waste Depackaging machine is ideally suited for this application. Separated packaging can also then be sent for recycling, further saving waste and potentially adding additional revenue lines.

Rowan equipment is available through ELB Equipment.
