Based on conclusions made in research into municipal waste processing, it is established that the existing technologies using stationary sorting plants most often involve special trucks that compact municipal solid waste (MSW) transported, which results in decreasing the plant efficiency. Preliminary MSW compacting during transportation significantly complicates the sorting process; at the compression ratio , time spent to sort the i-th volume of waste increases up to 30%.
A method proposed to run the feasibility analysis of the process involving the use of a package unit to sort MSW allows establishing the area of its application.
