Techno Rescue Techno Rescue expands with acquisition of e-End Together, the two companies will be able to recycle about 5 million pounds of material annually. After 14 years serving the Greater Denver area, Aurora, Colorado-based Techno Rescue is now expanding its electronic recycling and data destruction services to include the East Coast region. “The ideal company would not only have to be certified in recycling and data destruction, but needed to have a strong client base, and most importantly, operate under the same type of business culture I have built with my company, a culture that seeks to provide the highest level of customer service,” says Techno Rescue ’s President Nidal Allis. Allis says he vetted a number of companies until he found the right fit with Maryland-based e-End. “e-End not only met but exceeded my requirements in all areas,” he adds. Through the acquisition, e-End , located in Frederick, Maryland, will become a division of Techno Rescue, the company states in a news release on the acquisition. Under the new entity, e-End will continue to provide R2-certified recycling and destruction of data containing media under their NAID AAA certification. It will also maintain its ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 certifications. Allis says e-End is able to perform unique services for government and various law enforcement agencies. “Another major factor in my decision to go with e-End was their capability to destroy weapons, tactical items such as Kevlar helmets and vests, and a wide variety of ITAR-controlled devices. This greatly expands our market potential,” Allis says. With Techno Rescue’s and e-End’s locations, they will be capable of providing electronic recycling, data destruction, ITAD and ITAR services nationally. In addition, they have the ability to sanitize and destroy several hundred thousand data-containing media items annually. Arleen and Steve Chafitz, owners of e-End, say they had been approached by several companies in the past regarding an acquisition. “It was very important for us to know we were turning over our company, one we had built focusing on providing the highest level of service, to someone who possessed the same business culture and who understood the importance of treating their employees and clients with the same high standards we have always insisted on,” Arleen Chafitz says. The Carton Council, Denton, Texas, has appointed Jordan Fengel as its new director of government affairs. The Carton Council is composed of four carton manufacturers—Elopak, Evergreen Packaging, SIG Combibloc and Tetra Pak—and is focused on delivering collaborative solutions to divert cartons from the landfill. The Carton Council says Fengel is the former executive director of the State of Texas Alliance for Recycling (STAR). In November 2020, Fengel also joined Tetra Pak as a sustainability manager for the U.S. and Canada. As a founding company of the Carton Council, Fengel will lend his expertise to the council. “We are looking forward to having Jordan’s recycling expertise and perspective on our team,” says Jason Pelz, vice president of recycling projects for the Carton Council of North America. “His leadership with STAR in advancing the circular economy is particularly relevant as we continue to evolve carton recycling and educate on the benefits of carton recycling in the overall supply chain. “STAR has been a longtime advocate of the Carton Council and in promoting carton recycling,” Pelz adds. “Fengel’s perspective from this leading state recycling organization will be valuable as the Carton Council continues to engage communities in carton recycling, whether it is adding cartons to their local program or assisting with education efforts to ensure residents know cartons should be recycled.” In his role with the Carton Council , Fengel will help shape the carton recycling narrative with other recycling stakeholders working to increase participation and improve awareness, the Carton Council states in a news release. “While I have always recognized the value in carton recycling, I am excited to dive into all the efforts and collaborations that occur throughout the entire recycling chain to ensure more cartons get recycled,” Fengel says. Geomega Resources Inc., Montreal, says it has completed testing and optimization of its rare earths pilot plant at the National Resource Council Canada facility in Boucherville, Quebec. The company says this is the second-generation pilot plant after the completion of Geomega’s minipilot in April 2019. According to a news release from Geomega Resources on its new pilot plant, significant engineering work was performed that confirmed the validity of the corporation’s recycling technology for rare earths recovered from magnets. Geomega says the next engineering phase will begin shortly followed by the ordering and receipt of equipment for the construction of the larger demonstration plant in Saint-Bruno, Quebec. Four complete rounds of testing covering the entire recycling process were completed to date, confirming the efficacy of the corporation’s technology to produce rare earths, Geomega states. Pilot plant testing also has validated and facilitated equipment selection for the demonstration plant. Additionally, the pilot plant validates several process efficiencies. Rare earth recoveries are just above a 90 percent efficiency level; main reagent regeneration is at about 90 percent efficiency; product purities are just above a 99.5 percent efficiency level; and heating and cooling design updates confirm the process schedule of a three-batch process per each eight-hour shift, according to the company. Two new features also were tested in this pilot plant and integrated into the company’s recycling process. Boron, a small but important component in neodymium iron boron magnets, can now be recovered as a byproduct of the process, which the company says will have a positive impact on energy efficiency and anticipated revenue. Hydrogen, an emerging clean energy fuel in Quebec and globally, can be produced as a byproduct as well. The company says hydrogen recovery is important because of its potential to reduce the project's overall energy consumption and demonstration of the potential in applying the process to other metal-rich feeds that lack valuables elements and are not being recycled in light of poor economics. Geomega reports that it expects to continue running this pilot unit on an as-needed basis to test various types of materials it receives on a regular basis and to produce additional material for testing by various end users. “Having a fully operational pilot plant has provided Geomega with the necessary validation to proceed to the next stages of engineering, finalize discussions with vendors and launch procurement,” says Kiril Mugerman, president and CEO of Geomega. “Additional development and details on these activities will follow. We fully expect 2021 to be a transformational year for Geomega shareholders with the upcoming construction of the demonstration plant and its start of production of rare earth oxide using recycled magnets, a first in the western world. We believe that the accelerated demand growth for renewable energy and the electric vehicle sectors, coupled with industries and governments striving for zero waste and reductions in greenhouse gases, is going to result in an even larger demand for recycling rare earths from magnets and other sources. Geomega is looking forward to providing the required clean technology in the critical metal space to achieve a circular economy for rare earth magnets with its initial demonstration plant to be showcased in Saint-Bruno, Quebec.” Strategic Materials Inc., a glass recycler based in Houston, has announced that Sherry D. Williams will serve as its chief legal officer and senior vice president of human resources.

Williams graduated from the University of Oklahoma and earned her juris doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law. She also serves on the board of directors for several nonprofit organizations, including Brown Girls Do Ballet, which promotes diversity in the arts by providing annual scholarships, a mentor network and community programs to empower young girls.
