TORXX Kinetic Pulverizer Ltd., based out of Vaughan, Ontario, is extremely proud to welcome Michael Drolet to their team. Drolet brings over 20 years of experience in industrial process and equipment manufacturing.
According to Torxx, he worked for his family business for more than a decade before entering the recycling industry with a large recycling system OEM. In 2011, he joined Steinert where he shared his experience in the recycling industry and system integration until he integrated over the TORXX team.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
