Subject: Re: Process/machine to sort mixed solid waste (Stephen)

July 7, 1998

Dear Stephen from New Zealand,

Trommel screens and vibration devices, optical scanners and other devices are mechanized means of sorting out various materials in mixed solid waste into their component fractions.

For a basic course, obtain the following documents from the U.S.'s National Technical Information Service at Telephone: 703-487-4650:

Handbook: Material Recovery Facilities for Municipal Solid Waste, by US EPA ORD, EPA/625/6-91-031 (9/91)

Environmental, Economic and Energy IImpacts of Material Recovery Facilities, by US EPA ORD, EPA/600/R-95-125 (8/95).

The annual buyers guide of Waste Age magazine is one directory of vendors of the needed technology to furnish the most up-to-date sorting technology.
