A Legacy of Innovation: The Komptech and Viably Partnership

Founded in 1992 in Austria, Komptech, a blending of the words “compost technology”, has established itself as a trailblazer in machinery and systems for the mechanical and biological treatment of waste.

Over the years, the Komptech brand has become synonymous with innovation, efficiency, and sustainability. The company’s dedication to continuously developing new technologies to enhance waste processing and resource recovery while minimizing environmental impact has propelled it to the forefront of the waste management industry.

Komptech’s journey began with a solid commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency. Their machines and systems are designed to process solid and organic waste effectively, reduce landfill usage, and promote recycling, recovery, and composting. The Komptech Composting Process, known for its Shred-Turn-Screen-Separate method, exemplifies the company’s commitment to creating efficiency in compost processing and producing the cleanest end products.

There are more than 3,500 Komptech solutions in operation across more than 80 countries worldwide, with a significant presence in North America due to the company’s longstanding partnership with Viably (formerly Komptech Americas), which began in 2007. Their collaboration has been instrumental in advancing North America’s waste and recycling industry and has yielded numerous innovations.

Notable among these is the redesign of the Multistar XL3 star screen body to include screens for releasing steam in frigid temperatures and the development and recent introduction of the Lacero high-speed horizontal grinder. Designed specifically for the demands of the North American market, the Lacero is a game-changer in processing large quantities of wood and organic waste, such as logging debris and whole orchard removal.

Additionally, Viably is North America’s direct connection to the Komptech GmbH factory for OEM parts, ensuring seamless support and service for North American customers. Viably’s service team regularly travels to Austria to attend factory training on innovations and best practices in Komptech technologies.

Both Komptech and Viably share a common vision: to be solution providers to the waste and recycling industry. Komptech’s machines are not merely equipment; they embody the answer to a greener, healthier planet and a more profitable bottom line for waste and recycling companies across the United States and Canada.

The continuing journey of Komptech and Viably is one of relentless innovation and unwavering commitment to sustainability. As these companies continue to introduce new products and technologies to their customers, their partnership promises to drive further advancements in waste and recycling solutions. Together, Komptech and Viably are shaping a future where efficient waste management and environmental stewardship go hand in hand, ensuring a cleaner, greener world for generations to come.
