PALLMANN Group, is joining forces with Standard Bio, an expert in novel biomass conversion technologies, to develop a new biorefinery concept that will use low-value organic waste as a resource for clean energy, natural fertilizers and animal protein.
The concept is based around the conversion of renewable resources—in the first case trees from cultivated forests, although it can also be applied to other types of biomass—into solid briquettes for energy generation, as well as natural oil. At its heart is a patented high-pressure wood press and drying machine developed by Pallmann and Standard Bio, capable of producing 500 m3 of compressed wood per day, along with 50 160-L barrels of natural oil. Pallmann will develop and build various key pieces of equipment to reduce the dried wood to particulate sizes that can then be converted into the briquettes.

The new Cat MH3027 is the fourth and smallest in the series of new wheeled material handlers that Caterpillar is introducing to global markets in the greater than 25-metric-ton size class. At 28 500 kg (62,832 lb), the MH3027 delivers superior performance in a smaller package—specifically a swing radius that is 213 mm (8.3 inches) less than the Cat MH3037.
The new Cat material handlers are purpose-built from the ground up to work productively and reliably in solid waste and scrap recycling. The MH3027 is available in configurations for waste handling, featuring a straight stick, and for scrap handling, featuring a drop nose stick. A debris resistant cooling package with a hydraulic, variable speed, auto reversing fan and plug resistant coolers equips the machine for challenging conditions.
As defined by author, Malcolm Gladwell, in his book, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference, a “tipping point” is “a moment of critical mass, a threshold, a boiling point”.
If our recent Compost Matters regional workshops are any indication, organics recycling in Canada is reaching its tipping point. We are approaching the stage when organic residuals are being given the respect they deserve for their potential to help achieve dramatic waste diversion gains and greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and for their fundamental importance in terms of the long term health and vitality of our soils.
LEDR Recycling (Landfill-Environmental-Diversion-Reclamation) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the end of March at a new state-of-the-art indoor material recovery facility that will feature a customized CBI-built construction and demolition (C&D) recycling centre. John Davis, president and managing partner of LEDR Recycling, is opening the 35,000 square foot facility close to St. Louis, Missouri, knowing the city’s metropolitan area continues to grow at the same time that the operating windows for regional landfills are closing.
CBI designed, manufactured and shipped the C&D recycling centre out of its Newton, New Hampshire headquarters. Expected to start operating full-time by the end of April 2015, the system is expected to process over 50 tons of throughput per hour and will accept materials such as wood, concrete, drywall, plastic, metal, cardboard and aggregates. The facility will operate for eight to 10 hours per day, five to six days a week. A specialized CBI Magnum Force 5400 downswing grinder will become part of the system by the end of this coming June.

The stainless steel model 24-RDS-72 is comprised of a 61 cm diameter by 183 cm long cylinder with durable wedge-wire screening, a variable speed drive, head box, discharge chute and support structure. Typical applications include: separation of various solids and sludges from municipal and industrial wastewater, food processes, pulp and paper production and rendering processes; removal of extruded pellets from cooling baths; and separation of debris from any variety of plant and equipment cleaning processes.
