The common point between all these projects is innovation and technology, the lifeblood of Machinex, that are at the forefront of this record quarter. Indeed, advanced recycling requires advanced technology, and that is the commitment of Machinex, with interconnectivity and artificial intelligence within high-technology equipment for optimal MRF operation.
Location 1 – Santa Rosa
As Machinex continues its expansion on the West Coast, a new 50 tons per hour project in California including no less than seven MACH Hyspec® optical sorters will be delivered in 2023 to Recology. The objectives of our new client, Recology, were to add significant capacity, increase automation to improve product quality and efficiency, and to fit a modern processing system into an existing facility. Machinex’s challenge was to meet the throughput goal of 50 tons per hour, with substantial automation and to make the entire system fit within a site and building that had limited available space. “This project provides a lot of opportunity for us to increase the capacity and efficiency of our facility while simultaneously improving the quality of our products and increasing the diversion of the recyclable material we receive at the Recology Sonoma Marin MRF,” said Sal Coniglio, CEO of Recology. “It also allows us to further reduce our emissions–a huge focus and point of pride for our company. By partnering with the trusted experts at Machinex and investing in this cutting-edge technology, we’re taking a giant step towards achieving our resource recovery goals and delivering on our vision of a world without waste.”
Location 2 & 3 – Charlestown & Willimantic
Based on experience results and trustful relationship, Machinex was selected for two projects by its longtime partner Casella, as we are delivering new MRFs in Charlestown, MA and Willimantic, CT. “Working with Casella over the years has always been a pleasure. The system components have been proven within past retrofits, and the collaborative knowledge of both the Casella and Machinex teams will bring to life systems that we are both proud to say we designed. With experienced operators, we pride ourselves in designing the system with the customer as opposed to for the customer”, says Chris Hawn, CEO of Machinex Technologies Inc.
Location 4 – Western Canada
This brand-new Single Stream system is about to be delivered for another longtime client, located in Western Canada. This project has a processing capacity of 27 tonnes per hour integrating cutting-edge sorting equipment such as five MACH Hyspec® optical sorters and a SamurAI® sorting robot. This partner has been maintaining a devoted and continuous investment habit for highly automated projects and flexible systems. While ambitious goals are being presented to Machinex in terms of performance & system integration, ingenious project design from the Machinex team has been required and adopted by the client. Chris Hawn, CEO of Machinex Technologies Inc. stated, “We strive to provide industry leading customer experience from the start of the sales process through project management, installation, startup, and last but certainly not least, our after sales support. I feel it is a testament not only to our equipment, but more importantly to our entire project team, that we have such great customer retainment.”
Location 5 – Columbus
On top of that record quarter, Machinex was also selected by another longtime partner, Rumpke Waste & Recycling to deliver a brand new 56 tons per hour Residential Single Stream in Columbus, Ohio. The new material recovery facility which will feature the best sorting capabilities and most automation available, will also be one of the largest dedicated Residential Single Stream systems in the country.
These impressive results were made possible thanks to the 360 organization of the company. From designing to the start-up, all steps of the projects are made internally to ensure high quality and cutting-edge systems delivery. As a leader in designing and manufacturing equipment and sorting systems, Machinex can rely on its strong experience and an efficient team, continuously looking for improvement to ensure customer’s satisfaction. Being innovative as a system provider is the key for success.
