Scrap Expo to offer material upgrade insight

Jul 6, 2022

Scrap Expo to offer material upgrade insight September event in Kentucky to provide information on moving scrap metal up the value chain. The Scrap Expo event, taking place Sept. 13-14, in Louisville, Kentucky, has lined up programming designed to offer insight into the processes involved in handling and preparing ferrous and nonferrous scrap to increase its value. In addition to live equipment demonstrations, the two-day event at the Kentucky Exposition Center will include industry veterans offering presentations on how the sorting, baling, shearing or logging of different types of scrap can yield bottom-line results, according to the Recycling Today Media Group, which is organizing the expo. Sessions that are part of the program that have been designed to offer such insight to smaller dealers, demolition contractors and auto salvage business owners include, “Processing Scrap: Understanding What It Costs,” “Optimizing Scrap and Dismantler Yard Operations,” and “Specifying the Right Attachment.” Recycling Today Media Group says podcasts being hosted onsite during the two days also have been designed to offer helpful operations insight. That includes a Wednesday, Sept. 14, recording of the “Pile of Scrap” scrap, podcast, hosted by John Sacco of Sierra International Machinery. Sacco’s guest will be Jay Robinovitz, CEO of multiple-location scrap processing firm Alter Trading. States James R. Keefe, publisher of the media group, “We’re proud of this programming  and hope attendees will benefit from it. We’ll also provide plenty of free time for them to explore our indoor exhibit hall and then take a ‘test drive’ at our outdoor demonstration arena. Attendees can move, cut and prepare scrap in real time and view live demonstrations. Nearly three dozen equipment and service providers have signed on to be part of the event.” Early Bird registration Scrap Expo are available through July 15, with registration information found on this web page . Chesapeake, Virginia-based Total Fiber Recovery of Chesapeake (TFRC) says it has started construction of its $80 million recycled pulp production facility in that city. TFRC describes it as the first of several such pulp facilities being planned by Total Fiber Recovery. TFRC is a joint venture between Oregon-based Total Fiber Recovery (TFR) and Swedish company CellMark Inc. Material consumed by the facility will be supplied by CellMark’s Recycled Fiber Division and the pulp produced will be marketed by CellMark’s Pulp Division. Bulk Handling Systems , an affiliate of Total Fiber Recovery, is furnishing equipment for the facility. Crowder Industrial Construction of Charlotte, North Carolina, is the lead contractor. “Total Fiber Recovery’s innovative operation will produce in-demand recycled fiber that reduces our environmental footprint, and positions Chesapeake as a major participant in this important sector,” says Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin. “This project helps demonstrate that clean air, clean water and a strong economy do not have to be mutually exclusive. We thank the company for investing in our commonwealth, creating new jobs and supporting Virginia’s conservation efforts.” TFR plans to begin operations in Chesapeake in the fourth quarter of 2023 and annually process up to 300,000 tons of mixed paper and old corrugated containers (OCC) from the region’s materials recovery facilities (MRFs). The company will increase the region’s capacity to process recycled fiber and produce what TFR calls a clean recycled pulp for consumption in paper mills around the world. TFR says it has domestic and international offtake agreements in place for the pulp product made in Chesapeake. The Virginia Small Business Financing Authority authorized the issuance of $65 million of Green Bonds for the facility. Those bonds were sold earlier this month to New York-based Alliance Bernstein. “We are excited that Total Fiber Recovery has chosen the city of Chesapeake for its first recycled pulp production facility due to the region’s workforce and global access through the Port of Virginia,” comments Chesapeake Mayor Dr. Richard W. “Rick” West. “The revenue from exporting TFR’s pulp product in addition to the creation of 68 new jobs will be a positive economic boost for the city of Chesapeake and the commonwealth. “The paper industry demands recycled pulp to make new products, and North America is home to some of the world’s most advanced MRFs that produce high-quality recycled fiber,” states TFR CEO Steve Miller. “From consumers recycling at their homes, to legislators and regulators developing creative waste management plans, to the dedicated MRF operators sorting out materials, Americans have shown that we care about recycling. All that is missing here is the capacity to achieve our goals, and that is what TFR provides. We could not be more excited to be a part of the solution and to start here in Chesapeake, and we thank the local leadership for helping us realize our vision.” Comments Doug Smith, president of CellMark’s Pulp Division, “We are delighted with this exciting new opportunity to market this fast-growing pulp segment. The market is welcoming new entrants, and the Chesapeake project has all the critical elements for success: experienced partners, a plentiful recycled feedstock, a sophisticated cleaning process and excellent logistics.” Wisetek, an Ireland-based provider of advanced information technology asset disposition, data destruction, technology reuse and manufacturing services, has opened a facility in Northborough, Massachusetts. The 42,000-square-foot facility will provide ITAD and IT-related services. According to a news release from Wisetek, the new facility is fully operational and offers bespoke services, such as remote employee services, repair and mobile hard-drive destruction shredding. The site also will service some of Wisetek’s client organizations throughout the United States, including multinational and nationally based businesses. Additionally, the Northborough site will store stock from the company’s Wisetek Market e-commerce business, which gives consumers a channel to buy high-quality refurbished equipment. The company ensures that items listed on Wisetek Market undergo a rigorous assessment process to determine suitability, during which hardware is thoroughly tested. Any existing data on devices sold on Wisetek Market are wiped, and the equipment is refurbished as necessary before it is certified to be listed and sold at the site. “Wisetek is incredibly proud to announce the establishment of this new facility in Massachusetts, which will enable us to grow our presence in the region,” says Sean Sheehan, CEO of Wisetek . “This development speaks to the rapid growth of Wisetek and the ITAD sector as a whole, as more and more organizations are realizing the importance of implementing fit-for-purpose processes in this area in order to ensure security, compliance and sustainability. … This new facility demonstrates Wisetek’s continued investment to address the growing global demand for our services.” Wisetek says it aims to grow the Northborough site and increase its contribution to the local community. The company currently has 200 employees in the United States with goals to grow to 300 employees in the country. Wisetek has additional facilities in the U.S., including Austin, Texas; Winchester, Virginia; and Sacramento, California. Missouri and New Hampshire both passed advanced recycling legislation within the last month. Both Missouri’s H.B. 2485 and New Hampshire’s S.B. 367 enable the states to regulate advanced recycling technologies as manufacturing operations rather than as solid waste disposal operations. Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signed H.B. 2485 into law July 1. Parson says this legislation “will help reduce plastic waste and allow more used plastic to become valuable new products, all while creating jobs and encouraging investment” in Missouri. “Companies all over the country are investing billions in these [types] of recycling facilities,” he says. “With this new law on the books, they will know Missouri is open for business, and our citizens will know we are serious about a clean, sustainable Missouri.” Environmentalists have expressed opposition to H.B. 2485 while those in the plastics industry have supported it. Critics are concerned the policy will leave citizens more vulnerable to being exposed to dangerous chemicals. New Hampshire is the first state in New England to pass advanced recycling legislation. New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed S.B. 367 into law June 17. “Fewer plastic in landfills is a good thing, and I commend the legislature for supporting this commonsense environmental initiative,” Sununu says. According to a news release from the Washington-based American Chemistry Council (ACC), 20 states have passed advanced recycling legislation to date, including Missouri and New Hampshire. “Over the past five years, 40 percent of states in this country have signed advanced recycling legislation into law, demonstrating that recognition of these innovative technologies and their immense potential is rapidly growing,” says Chris Jahn, president and CEO of the ACC. “Advanced recycling diverts plastics from landfills, decreases greenhouse gas emissions, and helps create new jobs and revenue streams.” Trinseo, a specialty material solutions provider based in Switzerland, and GMP Group, a circular business innovations company in the Netherlands, plan to build a recycling plant in the Netherlands that will produce recycled food-contact polystyrene (PS). The companies anticipate the facility to begin operations in 2024. There also is an intended execution of a long-term tolling and off-take agreement. According to a news release from Trinseo, GMP will construct and operate an advanced pretreatment or regeneration plant with a minimum capacity of 25,000 metric tons per year. Trinseo says the plant will purify PS scrap and deliver what it calls “high-quality recycled PS pellets” via a recycling process. Gerard Putman, general director of GMP Group , says the new facility “will increase the reuse of a substantial volume of polystyrene in consumer food packaging.” He adds, “Furthermore, we can provide other sustainability solutions and improve circularity in various value chains.” Trinseo says the two companies plan to conduct research into other supply and processing opportunities by using their combined technology expertise to help develop more sustainable solutions. “The Trinseo-GMP collaboration is yet another important move toward helping our customers reach their sustainability goals and closing the loop for a circular economy, and both companies realize that the most successful way to do this is through synergy along the value chain,” says Nicolas Joly, Trinseo’s senior vice president of Plastics and Feedstocks. “This collaboration shows our continuous efforts in sustainability marching toward our 2030 sustainability goals.”
