According to 2017 data from the European Environmental Bureau, Germany is the world’s leading recycler, achieving a self-reported recovery rate of 66 per cent.
Alternatively, Blue Environment Group figures from 2018 estimate Australia’s national recycling rate at 55 per cent, suggesting Australia could take cues from its northern European counterpart.
While much of Germany’s recycling success is attributed to engaged citizens and strong policy settings, GCM Enviro is also moving towards Germany's approach offering a German solution to the Australian market with the Gramac E2 Trommel.
The small, light and compact Gremac E2 is an advanced screening system and is set to be a game changer for landscape companies, recycling businesses, contractors and farmers.
Suitable for soil, sand, gravel, stones, green waste, wood chips, compost, recycled materials, glass and alternative fuel, the Gremac E2 has a maximum weight of 3.5 tonnes, making it small enough to be towed by car.
The small yet powerful trommel can process up to 50 metres cubed an hour, featuring an electric motor and a hopper with a capacity of up to 1.6 metres cubed.
The trommel is electrically driven, with load sensing control for continuous workflow.
No material is lost during processing due to a one-piece fines discharge conveyor, with four crank support winches for secure positioning.
The trommel has state-of-the-art control and set up, with the frame and all material guiding parts manufactured with galvanised steel for long machine life.
The drive is available as either a petrol or diesel generator or can be plugged into mains to power the internal electric motor.
The new Gremac provides an advanced solution for Australia’s waste and recycling sector.
