With Juno Technology, turn your trash into treasure. Juno can recover up to 90% of the waste it processes and circulate those reclaimed materials back into the economy for future reuse.
Feedstock is loaded and staged to be fed to the Juno™ Clave. Load cells are used to accurately weight the material prior to processing.
Bales of waste are cut and loaded into the Juno Clave. Once the door is closed, steam is added and the feedstock is cooked to ensure the material is sanitized. During the cooking process, paper fibers are separated from coatings and food contamination. After the cooking is complete, the Juno Clave door is opened and the entire contents of the vessel are discharged.
The wash trommel processes all material that is sent through the Juno Clave. This step in the process is where paper fibers are recovered and sent to the paper mill to be turned back into paper and packaging materials.
Ferrous metals are recovered during this step of the Juno Technology process. Generally, up to 5% of the incoming feedstock is ferrous metal, and the magnetic belt recovers these metals for future reuse.
A dewatering press is used to reduce the moisture content of any rejects – materials that cannot be initially recovered. The press reduces the moisture content to 30%.
Eddy Current Separator
The eddy current separator uses a powerful magnetic field to recover non-ferrous metals from the rejects. Before collecting the metals, a vibrating table liberates the recyclable materials, allowing for efficient recovery. Non-ferrous metals at this step in the process typically include aluminum, copper and die-cast metals.
Make your products and packaging sustainable with Juno™ Fiber
A standard Juno Technology run recovers Juno™ Fiber – recycled paper fibers that can be turned back into food-safe paper-based packaging. These fibers typically represent around 20% of the waste stream. Through SCS Global, facilities that process and use Juno Fiber can become certified. Becoming Juno Fiber Certified supports landfill diversion and promotes circularity of previously landfilled waste.
Join Juno and stop wasting waste
Juno’s mission to increase recycling and recovery of materials that are currently wasted will work best when we work together. With partners and investors, Juno can reach more places, process more waste, and recover more resources – bringing job opportunities, environmental benefits, and enabling circularity in communities around the world.
