In the compost season 2022, the AEROSELECTOR demo plant in Ammerndorf (near Nuremberg) was used intensively. The local composting plant operator, the AKG Agrar Kompost GmbH, used it in daily operations. In addition, numerous exciting material tests – not only with compost – were successfully carried out with it.
Wind sifting, ballistic separation and screening is a combination that is not only well suited for compost processing. A material test in October 2022 showed that other dry and wet material flows can also be processed with it.
As an example: street sweepings, a material flow from which fractions with high recycling potential can be obtained. Leaves and twigs can be fed into biological waste treatment, gravel fractions can be reused, for example, as grit or in the construction industry.
As known from other material flows, also road sweepings record a growing proportion of impurities. These consist, for example, of glass, foils and cardboards – classic packaging waste that is carelessly thrown away.
In just one pass, the road sweepings could be quickly and efficiently divided into 5 fractions. Most of them can now be recycled and do not have to be sent to landfill or need to be incinerated.

In May 2022, the first production plant went into operation at Brantner Österreich GmbH.
In addition to the IFE AEROSELECTOR, it includes:
- a magnetic drum (designed as a head pulley in the first conveyor belt),
- another stone trap between first and second conveyor belt,
- an IFE VARIOMAT and
- a feed hopper with a capacity of 25 m³.
After 3 months of intensive operation, this video (in German language) was recorded and shows the production plant in full operation.
