New initiative aims to help local recycling programs

Jun 2, 2022

New initiative aims to help local recycling programs Colorado's Front Range Waste Diversion is seeking proposals for the second phase of its Technical Assistance Service Provider program. The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment's Front Range Waste Diversion (FRWD) program is piloting a new model to help advance communities up what it calls the "zero-waste ladder," and its board is seeking proposals from qualified applicants for Phase 2 of its Technical Assistance Service Provider (TASP) program. According to FRWD, the consultant will provide technical assistance to local governments that have an interest in establishing a new recycling program or expanding an existing recycling program for postconsumer and commercial solid waste in Colorado. Proposals are due by 3 p.m. Friday, July 1, with detailed instructions provided here . The FRWD program provides grants and technical assistance to Colorado's Front Range communities to increase recycling, composting and waste reduction. The FRWD enterprise consists of the FRWD board of directors and program administrative staff at CDPHE. Its current three-year strategic plan identifies goals in three focus areas: data collection and analysis, municipal solid waste, including organics and recycling, and nonmunicipal solid waste, focusing on construction and demolition debris. The program and enterprise fund was approved by the  Colorado state legislature in 2019  and collects funds from an increase in user fees at Front Range landfill to provide grants and technical assistance to increase recycling, composting and waste reduction. The Sennebogen 822 G features intelligent and resource-saving machine technology and comfort. Sennebogen, Straubing, Germany, has updated its 22 t 818 E recycling all-rounder to the latest G series machine generation. The company says the update makes it possible to handle and sort material in a particularly environmentally friendly and economical way. The compact 822 G material handler has a reach of up to 10 meters and a comfort cab that can be elevated as standard. The machine can be individually configured and features numerous equipment variants. The company says the 822 G is highly responsive with hydraulics that can be adjusted precisely by the operator and fast, overlapping movements with a hydraulic system that is optimized for demanding tasks in recycling and scrap yards. Additionally, the machine uses green efficiency technology to save resources and work efficiently. Pumps and large-scale hydraulic valves and lines ensure optimum efficiency. The 822 G now has a 110 kilowatt Stage V diesel engine with 3.8 l displacement, which is ideally suited in terms of power and consumption to the operating conditions in recycling and scrap. In addition to the low operating costs, the G series is also synonymous with Sennebogen’s 6th-generation material handling technology. The company says a particular focus has been placed on maintenance and service with the G series. The machine features an outward-folding lubrication system and an improved refueling to make servicing the machine convenient and safe. The 822 G also features an e-box, protecting the central electrical distributors and electronic modules from environmental influences in extreme conditions and ensuring maximum machine availability. The result means the extended time between maintenance. The premiere of the 822 G will take place from May 30 to June 3 at IFAT 2022 in Munich.

Novelis Inc., an aluminum rolling and recycling company based in Atlanta, has announced it has joined the First Movers Coalition (FMC). The organization is a global initiative aimed at decarbonizing eight hard to abate sectors, including aluminum, steel and trucking. Novelis says through the partnership, it will take a prominent role among a global network of companies committed to jump-starting demand for clean energy technologies to reduce carbon emissions from the aluminum manufacturing process. The FMC, launched during the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in 2021, is a joint venture of the World Economic Forum and the U.S. Department of State. The FMC serves as a platform for businesses globally, alongside governments, to leverage their purchasing power and supply chains to create early markets for innovative, clean energy technologies. Novelis plans to help expand the use of recycled aluminum globally and help scale new technology in the field. It is unclear how the company plans to do this, however, Suzanne Lindsay-Walker, the vice president of sustainability for Novelis, says the company has begun working with its supply chain to develop a plan to put in place in the future. “We have our goal to reduce our carbon footprint to be carbon neutral, and we know we can't achieve those goals without new technology that this commitment helps to scale,” Lindsay-Walker says. “This sends a demand signal for the primary industry to let them know that there's a demand, and we want to help them scale the technologies that are needed for all of us to meet our goals.”   Ball Corp. , Westminster, Colorado, also joined the coalition. By joining the FMC, both companies have pledged that by 2030, 10 percent of its primary aluminum purchases be near-zero, emitting less than 3t CO2 per ton. The FMC pledge also includes an assurance that by 2030 at least 50 percent of all aluminum Novelis uses is from recycled sources, a metric that the company has already surpassed with 57 percent of its inputs from recycled sources. Novelis' commitments to the FMC complement its goals to accomplish a 30 percent carbon footprint reduction by 2026 and to be carbon neutral by 2050 or sooner. Lindsay-Walker says there are five key levers to achieving this goal, including maximizing circularity by increasing recycle input, innovating around and introducing new high recycling alloys, increasing capacity to recycle and making Novelis operations more sustainable. The fifth lever is the decarbonization of primary aluminum, which is why the company joined the coalition. Steve Fisher, president and CEO of Novelis Inc., will announce Novelis' commitment to the FMC during a panel session at the Industry Transition Dialogue in Stockholm June 1. The panel will be chaired by Nancy Gillis, program head of climate action and First Movers Coalition, with special remarks by John Kerry, U.S. special presidential envoy for the climate.

"Novelis is eager to continue our efforts to decarbonize the aluminum industry, as well as support decarbonization in numerous adjacent industries relying on aluminum, by joining the First Movers Coalition," Fisher says. "Aluminum has the potential to reach a near zero-carbon footprint, but it requires investment in clean energy and taking some risks to move the industry forward. Partnerships like the First Movers Coalition can spur those investments by supporting an emerging market for developing technologies.”  Mura Technology, a plastics recycling technology manufacturer based in London, has announced it has secured an equity investment from science, technology and engineering firm KBR, Houston. The $100 million investment will allow Mura to develop multiple new projects to remove more than 1 million metric tons of plastic from global waste streams. Mura says it has been partnered with KBR , its exclusive global licensing partner, since 2021. Alongside the investment, a representative from KBR management will join Mura’s board of directors to help shape the its business strategy. “The combination of Mura’s game-changing Hydro-PRT technology with KBR’s scalable engineering and licensing expertise has now established a world-leading alliance in the advanced recycling of plastics,” says Steve Mahon, chief resource officer of Mura Technology. “Plastic pollution is a global crisis, which requires millions of metric tons of advanced recycling to begin to address this problem. At Mura, our goal is to design and deliver projects which provide robust risk-return profiles, which ensure investor confidence and collaborations with partners such as KBR will allow us to achieve this as quickly and effectively as possible.”   Mura and KBR have combined expertise and reach to bring Mura’s Hydro-PRT (hydrothermal plastic recycling technology), to global markets,  accelerating and de-risking the delivery of future projects. According to Mura, demand continues to grow for this technology, and it has since announced a licensing agreement with Mitsubishi Chemical Corp. in 2021, and strategic partnerships with Dow and Chevron Phillips Chemical Corp. Together Mura and its licensees plan to build facilities internationally, with the first to open in Teesside, United Kingdom, at the end of 2022. This will be followed by sites in the U.S.A. and Germany which will commence construction in the coming months. More sites are planned for Europe and Asia, including a project in South Korea with LG Chem, which will initially support the recycling of 25,000 metric tons of plastic waste. Each year, an estimated 300 million metric tons of plastic waste is generated, half of which is single-use plastics. Additionally, the extraction of fossil fuels and the transportation to plastic manufacturing sites emits 12.5 to 13.5 million metric tons of greenhouse gases every year. Mura says the Hydro-PRT is capable of recycling end-of-life plastic, and converting mixed plastic streams into fossil-replacement oils and chemicals. This enables plastic waste to be upgraded into new plastics and other products. There is no anticipated limit to the number of times the same material can be recycled, and Mura's supercritical water technology within the process makes it scalable. “Building on our strong partnership of collaboration and innovation, we are very excited to announce our expanded investment in Mura,” Stuart Bradie, KBR president and CEO. “With a strategic approach to commercializing and scaling its proprietary, differentiated plastics recycling solution, Mura is very well positioned for profitable growth and value creation as the plastics circular economy develops and matures.”
