New Zealand’s “Beast” helping to processes wood waste

June 1, 2022 |

In New Zealand, timber is estimated to make up 12.5 per cent of all waste going to New Zealand landfills each year. It’s a growing environmental problem, but there is a solution – and they call it ‘The Beast’.

This specialized piece of heavy machinery takes pride of place at a new construction and demolition waste processing facility in Auckland operated by EnviroWaste, part of the EnviroNZ group. The facility takes construction and demolition materials and sorts, processes and recycles them into repurposed products. ‘The Beast’ is fed truckloads of treated scrap wood and turns it into wood chips, which are then sent to a cement company who use it as biofuel.
