​Bandit Color Max Colouring System Now Available For Beast Horizontal Grinders

System takes full advantage of high-production capabilities, distributing colour throughout mulch as it is broken down

Bandit’s new enhanced Color Max colorizer system is designed to create beautiful coloured landscape mulch from waste wood. According to Bandit Industries, their Color Max colourizer system is a quick, efficient, cost-effective system that outperforms all other colouring systems, creating the highest quality coloured mulch faster and with lower operating costs.

The Color Max colouring system sprays color directly to The Beast’s patented cuttermill, which thoroughly coats material during processing. 

“This system takes full advantage of the high-production capabilities of The Beast, distributing color throughout the mulch as its broken down,” said Jason Morey, Bandit Industries sales manager. “Because color is applied to the cuttermill, coverage on the product is distributed evenly while also being efficient with the colorant. Compared to the competition, The Beast using the Color Max system can easily produce 35% more colored mulch per hour.”

The Color Max system requires less colourant and water to create the rich, evenly coloured landscape mulch that’s always in demand. By applying colour to the cuttermill, material stays in better contact with colour to literally produce more coloured mulch with less colourant.  Bandit says that on average, the Color Max system uses 25% less colour and 30% less water compared to the competition. The Color Max system is available as on option on all models in The Beast lineup. 

“The Beast is already known around the world for producing the highest quality mulch. With the Color Max system you’ll maximize profit on your waste wood even further,” Morey said.

Building on the Model Compost Rule Template

Building on the Model Compost Rule Template

Consider these facts. There are more than 4,700 facilities composting organics in the U.S., as per the "2017 State of Organics Recycling in the U.S." report released this fall by BioCycle magazine. There are 3,007 counties in the United States, most of which are required to update solid waste management plans on a regular basis. More than half of all U.S. states are in the market for a regulatory update and many of the rest are in the process of updating outdated regulations. That's a lot of regulatory and legislative action on the horizon for the compost manufacturing industry.

Harvest Quest inoculants Key to Charleston County’s rise to compost industry leader

Charleston County uses Harvest Quest inoculants and the modified aerobic static pile method.

Charleston County, South Carolina opened their compost facility in 1989. Back then, the concept was quite visionary and progressive - the idea of a municipality operating a compost site was still rather nascent. But for the first 20 years the outcome was moderate at best, as the operation mostly stockpiled green waste and let time do most of the work. That all changed dramatically in 2011 when they reached out to Darren Midlane of Harvest Quest. After applying Harvest Quest inoculants and committing to the MSAP (modified aerobic static pile) method, Charleston County's composting facility has transformed from the "armpit" of the landfill to a crown jewel of national waste management.

STEINERT's KSS multi-sensor system: a flexible combination sorting solution for electronic waste (WEEE)

A compact, flexible, combination sorting system: the STEINERT KSS (back) and UniSort Black (front).

Commencing work at STEINERT's Test Centre in Cologne in May, 2015, Swiss company Bühlmann Recycling prepared an especially demanding sorting task for the applications specialists. The challenge was to use a flexible facility (i.e. one that could be adapted to future input materials) to manufacture a variety of products so that the investment could continue to safeguard the future. The feed bunker contained electronic waste (WEEE). Today, after approximately two years, the facility is being operated by STEINERT partner MWN in Lyss, Switzerland, where it produces the desired results.

Putting “waste-free” aspirations to the test

Putting “waste-free” aspirations to the test

Change is in the air in Ontario. Improved management of food and commercial waste are main targets of the latest initiatives there to achieve a "waste-free" future. In 2016, the Waste-Free Ontario Act (Bill 151) set an ambitious goal for a circular economy that would eventually result in "zero waste" to landfill. In October, a special report was released by the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, Dianne Saxe, which examines the new law and strategy, and proposes what the province needs to do next.
