Earlier this summer, CP Group broke ground on the installation of the advanced material recovery facility that will be the front-end system for Fiberight's waste processing and refining facility. This site will feature Fiberight's first full-scale operation of its biofuels and biogas processing systems.
Serving 115 municipalities, the 144,000-square-foot Hampden, Maine facility will feature the latest technologies from CP Group to recover recyclable commodities and prepare residual waste for further processing on-site.
"I have known and have worked with CP since the 1990's on various jobs. CP is an engineering-focused company, which brought great value and utility when working with Fiberight to create a flexible design that is optimized for our unique processing needs," said Craig Stuart-Paul, Fiberight CEO.
The recovery system features a CP Trommel Screen with bag-opening knives, a steel-disc CP OCCScreen™, the new non-wrapping CP Auger Screen™ used to size material in place of a traditional scalping screen, two CPScreens™ for 2D/3D separation, the abrasion-resistant CP Glass Breaker to remove glass and fines, and 4 optical sorters. Two MSS CIRRUS® PlasticMax™ optical sorters will recover PET and HDPE, one MSS CIRRUS® FiberMax™ optical sorter will sort and clean fiber, and one MSS CIRRUS® will be used as a scavenger optical sorter to recover any remaining commodities.
