Marion Resource Recycling Facility aiming for over 90% C&D materials recovery
BHS 70-tph system in Oregon to include advanced air separation technology from Nihot
The Marion Resource Recycling Facility (MRRF) in Salem, Oregon, scheduled to be operational in the second quarter of 2021, will be able to process more than 70 tons per hour (tph) and capture more than 90% of inbound material for reuse, according to system supplier Bulk Handling Systems (BHS).
According to BHS, Marion's advanced industrial recycling system and MRF will be designed specifically to process Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris, and include advanced air separation technology from their Amsterdam-based subsidiary Nihot.
The proven Nihot DDS Windshifter employs circulated air technology to separate materials into three fractions based on density. At MRRF, it will recover aggregates and wood from less-dense materials, and the system will feature the BHS Total Intelligence Platform, designed to provide centralized system control and performance data.
"We are thrilled to invest in a system of this caliber," said MRFF General Manager Kevin Hines. "It's going to be a tremendous asset for years to come not only to our company, but to our partners, haulers, customers and community stakeholders. Recycling in Marion County is about to get a major upgrade and we couldn't be happier partnering with Bulk Handling Systems - we look forward to hitting the on-switch next year."
"It has been a pleasure working with the MRRF team," commented BHS CEO Steve Miller. "BHS truly appreciates MRRF's trust and partnership. This facility is designed for high-performance C&D recycling and will support their long-term success."

With an Acculoader automatic loading system, even smaller yards can take advantage of surging overseas demand for containerized scrap metal
Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
