New C&D waste-recycling plant for MRRF
BHS materials recovery facility specially designed to optimize recycling and recovery rates
MARION Resource Recycling Facility (MRRF) have commissioned a new Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) construction and demolition waste-recycling plant in Salem, in the US state of Oregon.
Due to come on stream in 2021, the management team at MRRF believes the plant investment will strengthen the company’s green credentials by reducing the use of primary aggregates and maximizing the reuse of C&D waste materials.
It was important for MRRF to operate a bespoke system in line with their ongoing policy of delivering good sustainable practice. With a maximum rated capacity of 70 tonnes/h, the recycling facility is expected to process more than 90% of inbound material for reuse.
The plant uses the latest in air separation technology (from BHS Amsterdam-based subsidiary Nihot), which separates waste materials into three fractions, based on density. It has also been designed with intelligent control and monitoring of incoming feed, thanks to the BHS Total Intelligence Platform with benefits such as centralized system control and performance data.
‘We are thrilled to invest in a system of this calibre,’ said Kevin Hines, general manager of MRFF. ‘It's going to be a tremendous asset for years to come not only to our company, but also to our partners, haulers, customers and community stakeholders. Recycling in Marion County is about to get a major upgrade and we couldn't be happier partnering with Bulk Handling Systems – we look forward to hitting the on-switch next year.’
