A pioneering, localised approach, to waste processing
13 August 2004, News release from Jarshire Limited
News release: The Waste Management Division of Jarshire Limited has developed a radical solution to one of the major problems associated with the management and recycling of waste.
Recycling is now recognised as a vital component in energy conservation and the preservation of our ecology, however, the energy used in transporting recyclable materials to a processing facility often exceeds that saved by the subsequent use of recycled materials. By processing waste at its point of origin, this imbalance can be corrected by reducing transportation and handling costs by up to 80-90%.
The Jarshire solution is based upon a self-contained, waste management unit housed in a transportable 20-40 ft container (patent pending) customised to contain all the necessary equipment and services for the specific purpose.
Designated Mobile MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) the unit is self-powered, weatherproof and has the option of including rest room facilities for staff. Applications are at any waste producing source where recycling is desired including factories and industrial sites, hotels, educational establishments, construction sites, small towns and villages, and at major public events. Local Authorities will appreciate the up to 80% reduction in landfill waste volume that such a facility can provide.
A first order has already been received from an international company and 2 MRFs, built into standard 20ft ISO shipping containers, are being shipped to Algeria for use on a major industrial site. Built to ISO 14001 quality and powered by an integral generator, each MRF houses a twin chamber baler, glass crusher, bulb crusher, jet washer, drum crusher, steel can crusher, aluminium can crusher, aerosol piercer, spill kits and waste oil tanks. Associated equipment includes 100 collection bins, fresh water tank, diesel tank, pallet truck, porter trolley and a drum handling trolley. The air-conditioned staff cabin is fitted with an extractor fan and a variety of electrical connections.
All equipment is supplied bolted to the container floor and additional fixed and temporary fastenings are provided to allow safe transport.
By utilising an easily transportable containerised housing, or multiplicity of housings, the Jarshire concept of localised waste management is able to provide an economical support, shelter and operational facility directly to a point of need.
