In California, CP Group is installing an advanced material recovery facility and front-end system for Fiberight’s state-of-the-art waste processing facility in Hampden, Maine. The facility is a fully functioning commercial application of Fiberight’s proprietary technology that upgrades MSW into refined energy and industrial products. A 144,000 square foot building is currently under construction and will begin receiving equipment this summer. The material recovery facility will start up by fall 2018; upgrading processes will be commissioned shortly thereafter.
Fiberight anticipates landfill diversion of up to 80%, including recovery of metal, plastic, OCC and other commodities for beneficial re-use or recycling. Other commodities to be recovered include contaminated cellulose, food waste and other organic materials that may be converted into biomass, sugars, market pulp, and biogas.
Terry Schneider, CEO and President of CP Group, says, “We are very honored to be a part of this groundbreaking technological advancement with the Fiberight team. Their forward-thinking approach could change the way the industry processes waste, particularly fiber. We look forward to beginning installation and getting this facility into operation.”
