Scrap Database Purchase Program

Scrap database purchase program for iPad JPOP is the first scrap and CRV database purchasing program for the iPad platform on the market, and is designed to satisfy all police department requirements for anti-theft regulations. JPOP (junk point of purchase) works with iPad (as well as Android) operating systems, for both 7 (mini) and 10-inch i-Pads. This technology takes pictures from both the back and front of an ID, captures customer faces and then stores information in a database.

JPOP works with air-print printers for cheque printing, and is Bluetooth-capable. It uses an iPad's camera to grab information from U.S. ID cards (as well as South American consulate IDs) and loads it into a customer database automatically.

Advancing standards to support development of compost markets

A standard objection in the advancement of organics recycling and composting has always been, “there won’t be enough uses for the compost products that are produced.” And our standard response has always been “produce good quality compost and the markets will be found.”

To complement this perspective, our Council has developed the Compost Quality Alliance (CQA). Designed to not only comply with federal and provincial regulatory requirements, CQA testing and promotion also focuses on the agronomic attributes of the compost product. Soil dynamics and the performance demanded of the compost used have been taken into consideration in the creation of the testing regime exacted by the CQA program. This is helping to support user confidence in the integrity of the compost product and its appropriateness for the intended use.

Terex Environmental TBC 430 biomass chipper

Terex Environmental Equipment’s new whole tree biomass chipper TBC 430, one of three machines in the company’s 400 Series, uses a massive 50-inch diameter drum in all three models. Terex says these are the largest drums in the industry, and will help improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption. The 400 Series drum has a 1-inch drum skin, full pocket cutting surface, and bolt-in replaceable wear parts, giving the Terex 430 a mechanical advantage in its cutting attack angle, as well as excellent wear, longevity and kinetic energy.

A large in-feed system and opening enables efficient feed to slash, limbs, short wood and whole trees, and all Terex chippers use a full knife pocket across the face of the drum to produce superior high quality chip and faster load times.

Crambo shredder available with mechanical drive

According to Komptech, the company’s Crambo shredder is indisputably one of the best machines there is for processing all types of wood and green cuttings. In addition to the existing hydraulic-drive model, there is now a mechanical-drive version – called the Crambo direct. The Crambo direct has a drive train that combines the functionality of hydraulics with the efficiency of a mechanical drive. Komptech says its new mechanical drive with automatic transmission has numerous advantages, such as higher efficiency and lower fuel use, while retaining full functionality such as overload protection, reversing capability and two shredding speeds. Plus, the unit’s degree of shredding can be adjusted flexibly, either by changing the screen basket, or even more conveniently, by changing the entire screen basket cartridge.

Available for use with Crambo shredders, Komptech’s recently introduced Bio-Basket XL is a modified screen basket cartridge, bio-cutter and wide-mesh screen basket. This option is designed to allow biomass processors more production out of green cuttings (approximately 30 percent) while further reducing fuel consumption. The Bio-Basket XL’s large 640 mm by 200 mm holes prevent material from circling around in the shredding compartment, so that woody biomass output retains its desired coarse structure. Plus, due to low friction losses, no extra fine fraction is produced, ensuring maximum quality and quantity of output.
