Pioneering a new and better way of doing business, that’s the goal of Mfangano Solution, working with municipalities and contractors to deliver the right recycling machinery, at the right price, with the best environmental performance. “We don’t push our equipment onto the market but are, instead, driven by our customers’ needs. I enjoy sitting down with clients to understand their challenges and then assist them to find solutions – that’s why we’re called Mfangano Solutions,” says managing director James Kamau.
Mfangano Solutions is situated in Johannesburg/South Africa and is an environmental waste management company, supporting the vision of zero waste to landfill by providing a wide range of high-quality recycling machinery that meets Level V US emission limits for superior environmental performance (Fig. 1). “We support government’s goals of increasing recycling rates across waste streams while reducing landfilling. Our products create secondary raw materials, which are used in manufacturing and for energy production,” James Karnau adds (Fig. 2).
6 Rockster impact crushers R700S for Pikitup
Beginning of this year, James Kamau, the new Rockster dealer for South Africa sold 6 impactors R700S to PIKITUP, Johannesburg‘s official waste management service provider. Pikitup services the entire 1625km² that is Johannesburg, keeping the city clean and preserving an attractive and hygienic environment for residents and visitors. They use the Rockster crushers for producing recyclate used in roads construction and other carbon-based materials. Landfills should be minimized, they want to establish processes of recycling and immediate re-use of the final grain on site. Additionally, transport costs and associated pollutants can be reduced. MFANGANO and Rockster offer the necessary technology and know-how to reach these targets.
“Mfangano has trained Pikitup operators and keeps spare parts available at its premises. These measures prevent avoidable downtime and allow Pikitup to manage our building rubble and green waste more effectively,” says Christa Venter of Pikitup (Fig. 3).
High quality crushing on limited space
The Rockster R700S mobile impact crusher was specially developed for jobsites with limited space, as is typically the case for metropolitan municipalities. “The well definable final grain was another argument for purchasing a Rockster crusher. The hydrostatic drive allows a continuous adjustment of the crusher speed and therefore guarantees an optimal modification of the final product. Furthermore the hydrostatic drive has no wear compared to usual clutch systems,” James Kamau says.
Not only are Mfangano Solution’s products like the Rockster crushers environmentally friendly by design, they also provide a valuable service – through the promotion of the secondary resources economy. The benefits of stimulating this sector are well documented, in that it saves costly landfill space (Fig. 4), enhances GDP, and creates jobs.
