TruStar Energy Awarded Contract to Design and Build CNG Fueling Station for All Waste, Inc.

TruStar Energy,has announced plans to design and build a large time-fill Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station for All Waste, Inc., based in Hartford, Conn.

According to All Waste’s Operation Manager, Bob Norton, domestic CNG dovetails with other environmental programs that have been championed by All Waste - one of the largest privately held refuse haulers in the state. “This goes hand-in-hand with our long-term recycling efforts. We are the leading hauler with regard to recycling volumes being removed from the waste stream,” said Norton. “We were the first to implement single-stream recycling in Connecticut, where all the types of paper products and glass and metal can go into a single receptacle. It increased recycling by over 100 percent. In keeping with that, we made the decision to convert to CNG for our larger garbage trucks.”

MOD Material Recovery Station Automatically Separates Liquids from Solids for Easy Recycling

The innovative, new MOD Material Recovery Station from recycling product manufacturer Meese Orbitron Dunne Co., automatically separates liquids from solids to allow both to be collected and more quickly and easily processed for recycling or for sale as highly marketable scrap. Developed to help companies convert costly waste into revenue and support waste stream diversion programs, the self-contained Material Recovery Station sets a proprietary, plastic screening panel inside one of the company’s leak-proof, reusable, ShipShape bulk plastic containers. Solid particles are screened and safely accumulated inside while liquids are safely contained in the bottom until ready to be drained. When full, the entire Material Recovery Station may be lifted by forklift, emptied and returned to service or covered and hauled away as part of a returnable, loop system. 

Ideal for collecting and recovering plastic, metal, glass, rubber and virtually any type of swarf, among other recyclable products and materials, the MOD Material Recovery Station is available in several sizes and capacities, on a standard, 44-inch x 44-inch footprint. The recycling system is available in a choice of colors with optional, molded-in recycling logos and tracking information, and the internal screening panel may be customized with a range of hole sizes to accommodate a wide range of waste particle types and sizes.

Grinder ideal for biomass applications

The Model G2100-26-400 Grinder is the largest and the latest generation of Warren & Baerg’s high production, virtually dust-free square bale grinders. The G2100-26-400 Grinder model is ideal for biomass processing applications and is designed specifically to feed two 4-foot by 4-foot by 8-foot bales side by side, allowing users the ability to blend two different types of material at the same time.

Warren & Baerg says many of their new customers are switching from a tub grinder (or other multi-stage grind system) to horizontal grinding systems, to reduce or eliminate dust problems, reduce horsepower, manpower, and maintenance cost, as well as reduce material losses by between 1 and 6 percent. The G2100-26-400 can be used either as a high volume pre-grinder or as a one-step single grinder system, using as low as 1/8-inch screens.

FT2650 features pre-screen option for higher quality

KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens recently unveiled its new FT2650 track-mounted jaw crusher with pre-screen option, designed to allow producers to make high quality, premium products. Built for mobility, the FT2650 provides a feed opening of 26 inches by 50 inches, and production rates up to 500 tons per hour. The increased stroke of the Vanguard Jaw Crusher provides more compression, more relief, faster throughput and up to 25 percent more capacity, according to KPI-JCI product manager, Ron Griess.

Effective in multiple aggregate or recycling crushing applications, this plant allows producers to benefit from low-cost transportation and set-up between job sites as well as convenient on-site mobility. A patent-pending grizzly pre-screen option employs independent grizzly fingers that vibrate independently, generating higher energy to resist blinding and plugging. Increased open-area also results in increased productivity, and the grizzly modules are easily interchangeable for flexibility, allowing producers to remove a wide array of unwanted fines from production, ensuring higher-quality premium products.
