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."
On January 1st, 2021, the Basel Convention's plastics waste amendments became effective in Canada. The amendments focus on the international movement of plastic wastes that may have limited recycling options or be more difficult to recycle. This change will likely be felt all along the supply chain, including collectors, processors, and exporters. If you export plastic waste for recycling or final disposal, or if you are an exporter of other scrap materials, including plastic, paper, or e-waste, you may be subject to Canada's Regulations, and a valid export or transit permit may be required.
