Carpet Recycling & Waste to Energy

Modular Split-Apart Shredder

Republic developed its carpet recycling and waste to energy solutions as a response to a challenge grant from the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE), an organization dedicated to carpet recycling and diverting carpet from landfills. Republic’s carpet recycling shredders boast sustainable throughput capabilities of 3-5 tons per hour. Just as significant is Republic Machine’s ability to drastically reduce the cost of consumables. Our carpet shredders deliver costs of less than a penny a pound.

Republic’s carpet recycling shredders prepare carpet fiber for recycling and/or pelletizing. Recycled carpet holds great potential BTU value for the waste to energy market. This product can be burned to generate electricity with few environmental implications.
