What Is It and How Does it works?

the orex high pressure press

The OREX Press separates more than 90% of all the organic material in challenging waste streams, such as Trommel Fines from MSW and Food & Green Waste.

The Press can be integrated onsite to treat existing waste or allow new waste streams to be processed.

Key benefits include:

  • high organic separation efficiency in difficult to treat waste streams
  • produces feedstock with exceptionally high biogas yield for aD
  • high throughput – reduced cycle time, energy consumption & parts wear
  • robust, proven technology that easy to service and maintain
  • OREX produces high organic separation efficiency in challenging wastes
  • OREX produces feedstock with a high biogas yield in AD
  • Compact design achieves high throughout with reduced cycle time, energy consumption & parts wear
  • The OREX is robust, easy to service and maintain
  • The OREX is a proven technology

  • The OREX 500 Press can process up to 20 tonnes per hour of waste
  • Forces waste through 8-16mm mesh screen at pressures of up to 275 bar
  • Pressure separates the wet organic fraction from the paper, carboard, plastics, grit & woody material
  • Wet organic fraction is forced through mesh screen
  • Remaining dry material expelled separately.
  • This Dry Fraction can then be processed into RDF or Composted

How OREX Helps Assists Local Authorities with Food Waste Management

The OREX enables the diversion of difficult -to-manage organic wastes wastes from landfill. LA can collect food & green wastes together saving time, cost and infrastructure – or collect it separately. The OREX operates very effectively in both situations . Green Waste pressed by the OREX is now ready for processing in a standard AD plant and the AD digestate produced is PAS110 certified.
