Argentina city opens single-stream MRF

Argentina city opens single-stream MRF
<![CDATA[

The city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in partnership with San Diego-based CP Group, has opened what is being called “the most advanced recycling system in the country of Argentina.” The 10-ton-per-hour residential single-stream recycling system began running in October 2016 in Villa Soldati, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires.

“It’s the most modern recycling center in Argentina,” said Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, head of government of the autonomous city of Buenos Aires, at the inauguration of the plant in October. “The city has improved a lot in the separation and treatment of recyclable waste,” he continued. “Four or 5 years ago, nothing was separated. Today, this system is recovering 400 tons of dry materials per day, and that amount is expected to double to 800 tons per day in 2019.”

The material recovery facility’s (MRF’s) system features CP separation equipment, including a CPScreen for 2D/3D separation, an MSS Aladdin optical sorter, a CP Metering Drum, a CP OCCScreen and CP Glass Breaker Screen with patented Cam-Discs.

The recycling system is part of the city’s Green Center, which recovers recyclables and provides education about waste treatment processes and its importance in Buenos Aires.

“Throughout the entire process, the city of Buenos Aires has demonstrated environmental leadership as well as a long-term commitment to developing a sustainable solution for capturing the valuable recyclables and diverting them from the landfill,” says Dirk Kantak, international sales director for CP Group. “Between the city of Buenos Aires, and our local distributor (Coinsa Construcciones), we could not have asked for two better partners on this successful project.” 

The MRF began operating October 2016. During the training and commissioning period, CP Group says it worked closely with the Spanish-speaking local staff to operate and maintain the MRF.

CP Group—comprising CP ManufacturingKrause ManufacturingMSS Inc. and Advanced MRF—provides award-winning recycling system design, manufacturing, retrofits, audits and consulting. CP Group provides turnkey solutions for mixed waste, residential recycling, commercial and industrial waste, construction and demolition debris and electronics recycling applications.
