The MRF Operations Forum will take place online on October 19, 2020.
This forum is designed especially for those seeking to optimize the operations of their plants, including plant managers, maintenance managers, regional managers, owners, consultants, engineers, government officials, equipment suppliers and anyone else interested in better understanding plant operations and technology.
Processing plants for single-stream, dual-stream, mixed waste and C&D materials are complex. They require significant capital investment and incur large ongoing operating costs. Managing these investments to ensure maximum recovery, purity, throughput and return-on-investment is challenging.
The forum covers topics such as what metrics you should be looking at and understanding and reporting them; maintenance best practices; screen optimization; workforce management; how changing material and specifications will impact operations; safety programs that work; new ANSI standards; and much, much more.
With a program designed for plant operators and a focus on take-away value, make plans to attend today!
Material recovery facilities (MRFs) are seeing many challenges that directly impact operations. Some of these challenges include: new recycled material quality standards from China, the ratcheting up of voluntary and mandatory local and state recycling goals, lower tolerance for worker injury, increasing volumes and a changing waste stream, disposal bans on organics in landfills, and high demand from emerging energy
markets for organics.
MRFs equipped with the latest technologies are able to meet tightening standards for traditional quality recycled materials and some are also starting to provide a separate, clean organics stream for downstream alternative energy projects. Many MRF operators are now benefitting from these new technologies, with increased throughput and quality of end product.
The article by Bruce Clark and Mike Kalish of SCS, provides an overview of the latest developments in MRF processing equipment systems that are helping owners and operators meet these challenges and at the same time helping maintain a healthy bottom line.
