Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions and Van Dyk Recycling Solutions (North America’s exclusive distributor of Bollegraaf, Lubo, and TOMRA equipment) have confirmed the delivery of the Dallas MRF, which is going to be one of the most advanced materials recovery facilities in the USA. The newly opened materials recovery facility is employing a host of sorting technologies to curbside materials from households. The state-of-the-art installation is capable of sorting 35 tons of Single Stream material tons per hour.
The facility will accept all Single Stream material from the city of Dallas and the city of University Park, Texas. The system was designed by Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions to bring Dallas closer to its goal of zero-waste by the year 2040. It successfully processed over 1,000 tons of material in its first two weeks and passed its required acceptance test for the city of Dallas prior to the contract start date of January 1st, 2017.
The facility contains cutting-edge technology provided by Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions. A series of Lubo StarScreens® separates OCC, glass, fiber and containers. The series features Lubo’s newest offering, the Anti-Wrapping ONP Screen, the widest screen in the industry at 4,40 meter, with 440 stars. The stars incur virtually no wrapping, even after hours of operation. Cleaning and maintenance time is reduced to less than 10% of that of traditional starscreens.
A total of four TOMRA (TITECH), model Autosort 4, optical sorters recover any remaining fiber and separate all plastics. An overbelt magnet and Eddy Current recover ferrous and aluminum cans, respectively. And a glass cleanup system (Walair) creates four fractions of clean, sellable glass. The system is capped off by a Bollegraaf HBC-120S baler that is capable of baling all commodities accepted at the facility.
