Matpro Appointed Exclusive Ecostar Distributor for UK & Ireland


Matpro Machinery Ltd has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for Ecostar equipment within the UK and Ireland.

The Italian based manufacturer, Ecostar, is synonymous with the most advanced technology in the mechanical separation of waste. Having undertaken over 20 years of research and development to create a range of equipment capable of screening all types of waste, they now boast over 500 machines delivered worldwide.

The Ecostar range includes a versatile mobile screener (Hextra), a compact modular static screener (Hexact) and an extractor hood that works in tandem with the Hexact to remove light materials and dust from the waste stream (Hextractor).


As their name suggests, Ecostar has a commitment to the environment. Their range of eco-friendly machinery uses their Dynamic Disc Screening patented technology to revolutionise the standards of screening equipment. Their screeners also benefit from a patented anti-wrapping technology that allows for continuous flow of material over the deck, without long fibrous waste becoming ‘wrapped’.
