Komptech's Multistar S3 is a new generation star screen built on the same performance features as the company's larger models, but with affordability in mind. Designed as a perfect fit for low-volume and medium-volume producers, the hopper capacity of up to 4.5 cubic yards provides continuous operation, while large screen decks allow the machine to process between 125-200 yards per hour depending upon application.
Ease of mobility: built on a trailer chassis, this machine has a small footprint while still offering mobility for service providers or multi-site use. Just like the larger star screen models, the machine can process a large range of materials from compost to green waste to bark, chips and pre-shredded waste wood. Similarly, almost all the options on the larger machines are available on the S3- wind-sifting, screen deck variations, switch from three to two fractions, hopper extensions and much more.
American Tire Recycling Group (ATRG) located in Miami, FL, is expanding its facility and making some big changes to its tire recycling line of equipment. ATR is a producer of rubber products including tire derived fuel (TDF), rubber mulch, crumb rubber and rubber used in rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC). The company was started as a collaborative effort of three Latin American groups looking to make a positive environmental impact in South Florida.
Over the past four years, the company has significantly increased its tire collection market going from 7,000 to 28,000 tires per day. They have achieved significant growth and high level of success within the rubber products marketplace. However, limiting their growth was their existing equipment. Barry Kauffman, one of the Principles stated. “In order to expand our markets and increase our distribution channels, American Tire had to invest in new equipment that would produce the end products that the market demands at increased volume, lower costs and less downtime.” Kauffman adds, “The equipment has to be dependable and be supported by a world class equipment provider.”

Canada’s tire stewardships have launched an integrated new website about Canada’s tire recycling industry (www.CATRAonline.ca). The Canadian Association of Tire Recycling Agencies (CATRA) has developed this resource to provide a single destination for up-to-date recycling data, national, provincial and territorial information, and to provide CATRA members an online forum to store, access and share information across jurisdictions.
“Our goal was to develop a resource to make it easier to find accurate and timely information about the tire recycling industry in Canada – and we’ve succeeded. Our new website provides visitors with a one-stop-shop for useful information about recycling tires in Canada,” said Bob Ferguson, CATRA program manager. “With a national diversion rate of almost 100 per cent, our provincial and territorial tire stewardship programs are highly successful so we wanted to give them a place to share resources, showcase their successes and provide a forum so they can learn from one another.”

Textile Recycler, a member of the Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles Association (SMART), the international trade association of the for-profit used clothing reuse and recycling industry, diverts more than half a million pounds of clothing and 10,000 pounds of shoes each week from landfills with the use of automated sorting systems.
According to Jackie King, executive director for SMART, for more than 400 years, the used clothing and textile recycling industry has relied heavily on manual sorting and grading processes and has seen little to no technological advances since its inception.

In 2014, Textile Recycler installed an automated shoe sorting system and is the only textile recycling company in the world to use one.
