Mobile EPS Processing Pilot

Projects Description

A mobile EPS densifier pilot to investigate the potential to minimize some issues that have kept some municipalities from adding this material to their program. The proposed pilot involves a portable unit that will travel from depot to depot in the SW Ontario corridor, manual sortation of collected EPS to meet end market specifications, and compaction of the materials into bales prior to transport to the end market thereby reducing hauling costs.
