Green Machine wins contract to build nations largest ASR “Auto Shred” recycling sort line. Green Machine’s Patented Optical sorting technologies provided GEP Fuel and Energy Indiana with the only technology able to sort high volumes “200 TPH” of ASR Scrap primarily comprised of black plastics. Marc Lindemann, Green Machine’s Waste Conversion Expert says “That a wide variety of technologies are being deployed to condition this material into an acceptable feed stock needed to produce Bio Diesel fuels. In addition high value plastics and metals will be diverted to recycling markets enhancing the Camden Plant’s ROI”.
GEP Fuel & Energy Indiana is a joint venture between U.S. Energy Logistics, Toledo, Ohio, and GEP Fuels. The company says it plans to invest $100 million to build a 450,000-square-foot recycling facility in Camden. Construction on the project is expected to commence by the first quarter of 2017, GEP Fuel & Energy says, and the facility will process recyclable and nonrecyclable plastics into a host of commercially viable end products.
In addition to a recycling center, the companies plan to build an adjacent facility for $200 million that will convert low-value plastic scrap that cannot economically be recycled into a fuel for the transportation sector.
