Mazza Recycling starts advanced sorting system
Mazza Recycling starts up the most advanced single-stream system on the East Coast in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. The system uses positive sorting to make paper with a very low percentage of prohibitives and outthrows. Its unique setup allows for flexibility in making multiple paper grades.
Mazza makes clean paper with positive sorting
Mazza’s system features the newest optical setup with Tomra Autosort technology and Deft Air to increase sorting accuracy on paper. The company currently produces a super-clean SRNP (sorted residential papers) grade as well as a sellable hardpack mix.
Unique mono-platform design
The mono-platform design for QC (quality control) sorting allows Mazza to supervise its entire sorting staff on one level and monitor progress on all sorted grades at once.
FCC Houston wins NWRA award
FCC Environmental’s Houston MRF won NWRA’s Recycling Facility of the Year award in 2020. FCC’s Dallas MRF previously won this award in 2017.
RoBB Robotic sorters installed
Two RoBB robotic sorters were supplied to different customers to perform quality control on their container lines. RoBB sorts using camera and NIR (near-infrared) recognition.
OPRSystems Inc. running Bollegraafs for 29 years
OPRSystems Inc., Wilmington, Massachusetts, upgraded to a newer and larger Bollegraaf baler after running an HBC120 for 16 years. The new baler operates along side the company's other baler, an HBC40 from 1991 that has never stopped operating to this day.
Retrofit with newest Autosort models
The latest Tomra Autosort technology is part of a retrofit at Maryland Environmental Services at Prince George’s County. A complete upgrade of the commingled container line will allow the MRF to recover PET, HDPE - natural, HDPE - color and PP instead of mixed 1-7 plastics.
Paper sorting made easy
Deft Air helps optical sorters get browns and trash out of paper to produce clean fiber grades. Deft Air is installed over the acceleration belt to apply a steady current that stabilizes light materials that are prone to floating, improving the optical sorter's visibility and overall performance.
Front-end retrofit increases throughput
This Michigan recycler added a new front-end system with a presort line and OCC (old corrugated containers) screen. That plus an upgrade from an old ONP (old newspapers) screen to a new nonwrapping 440 screen lets the recycler process at higher throughput and automatically recover cardboard.
Baling containers only
Waste Management replaced a two-ram baler at its Philadelphia location with a Bollegraaf HBC120 baler. Baling on containers only, it makes perfectly shaped, dense plastic bales while delivering the hallmark benefits of a Bollegraaf: cost savings on maintenance, electrical and wire usage.
Front-end retrofit for cleaner paper
This Canadian recycler began a retrofit to handle additional incoming single-stream material. Nonwrapping 440 screens with optical sorters positively ejecting fiber makes a cleaner paper product.
An upgraded MRF in Niagara now uses a drumfeeder to assist in bag opening and regulating material flow to its fiber line. Several of our customers opted for new drumfeeders this year to evenly feed material to their systems.
Nonwrapping screen upgrade
Casella Waste Systems' Auburn, Massachusetts, location upgraded with a new nonwrapping screen and HBC120S baler to solidify baling consistency and produce quality paper fractions.
Food waste depackager installed
To comply with California legislation, this recycler/waste hauling company will use new SMICON depackaging technology to liberate and screen preconsumer and postconsumer packaged food waste into a clean food slurry for anaerobic digestion and composting.
New technology at our test center
Van Dyk’s material and technology test center adds the newest technology in Tomra Autosort. SharpEye, Deep LAIser and GAIN technologies use artificial intelligence to identify and separate materials that previously were difficult to sort.
Autosort Flake technology at CarbonLite
CarbonLite begins production at its Reading, Pennsylvania, plant, the largest stand-alone bottle-to-bottle recycling facility in the world. It uses Tomra Autosort Flake sorters supplied by Van Dyk to produce a projected 90 million pounds of rPET annually.
The ReSource Center starts up
The Resource Center project starts up in Santa Barbara County, California. The MSW system captures recyclables and organics to divert them from landfill.
Van Dyk Vision provides service safely
Van Dyk Vision-ARTM innovates customer service during the COVID era by providing no-contact support sessions. The device uses real-time streaming technology to simulate an in-person visit , eliminating travel and complying with social distancing.
Why buy Bollegraaf?
2020 sees 20 new Bollegraaf balers supplied to high-volume systems across North America. New and existing customers continue to rave about Bollegraaf balers, some of which are decades old and still putting in full-shift hours.
