Canada – Machinex of Canada is to supply a new materials recycling facility for Central Newfoundland Waste Management (CNWM) with a processing capacity of up to 12 tonnes per hour of dry residential and commercial waste. The company intends to begin installation in June 2014, with start-up scheduled for October next year.
According to the machinery specialist, the system will offer ‘the perfect balance between manual labour and automated sorting equipment’, and will include a ballistic separator, an optical sorting unit, a magnet for ferrous, eddy-current separation, a bag opener and trommel.
The ‘operational flexibility’ of the plant will enable the processing of a very wide composition of material while focusing on the recovery of ferrous, non-ferrous, paper, cardboard, PET and HDPE plastics bottles, mixed plastics, films and textiles, it says.
CNWM’s chairman Allan Scott comments: ‘This is the culmination of considerable research and study of numerous facilities in both Canada and the USA. We feel that Machinex had the best solution for our requirements and look forward to working closely with them in the completion of this MRF.’ Pierre Pare, ceo of Machinex Group, adds: ‘Our company is really proud that all the material recycling facilities in Newfoundland are made by Machinex.’
