In Salem, Oregon, Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has secured a deal to supply equipment for the new Marion Resource Recycling Facility which will process up to 70 tonnes per hour of Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste.
BHS explained that the advanced industrial recycling system, scheduled to be operational in the second quarter of 2021, will be able to capture more than 90% of inbound material for reuse.
The Eugene, Oregon based recycling equipment manufacturer said that it has included advanced air separation technology from its Amsterdam-based subsidiary Nihot.
The 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. The system also features the BHS Total Intelligence Platform 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,” Hines concluded.
“It has been a pleasure working with the MRRF team,” said 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,” Miller went on.
