Using EPI's OXO-BIO-DEGRADABLE Plastic Wrap
The New Bale™ Turn-key Baling Operation includes the automatic square baling of waste in a controlled environment using an oxo-degradable landfill bale wrap . Wrapped and temporarily treated bales are then transported to the landfill working face by flat deck trucks and fork lifted into place. There is no exposed work face therefore it is proposed that the lift heights for the waste can be up to 10 meters high before the requirement of the 300 mm soil floor layer. Due to the temporarily treated bales there would be no working face or batter 150mm soil cover requirements.
Bale fills have been operated in Europe and around the world for many years without the availability of a landfill degradable stretch wrap to cover the bales as all plastic technologies at the time did not degrade in this controlled landfill environment.
New OXO-BIO-DEGRADABLE plastic stretch wrap technology has been tested and developed to encapsulate the bale temporarily and sequentially degrades in the heat of a landfill environment.
