PMD Sorting Plant, Lobbe Iserlohn

In 2014 the existing sorting plant of LOBBE in Iserlohn was completely renewed. The aim was to set up a completely redesigned state-of-the-art sorting plant for PMD to produce material fractions tailored to the actual requirements of the recycling system.

The overall planning and the project management was assigned to HTP. The engineering team of HTP assisted Lobbe in the plant commissioning phase, ramp–up phase and subsequent process optimization.

One unique selling point of the project was the short construction phase.
