Technology that Helps Reduce Landfills

Traditionally, landfills receive a plethora of materials that could be recycled, if only there were resources available to assist in this.

Today, Novelis Corp. and PRFection Engineering are partnering to jointly offer technology to landfills and transfer stations to help recover more recyclable materials.

This technology will focus primarily on recovering aluminum cans and steel, though it could also include plastic bottles and other materials with some system improvements. As is, it will divert up to 15 percent of recyclable materials from landfills.

This system, the MiniMRF, has been used successfully in Central Ohio since August 2008. Novelis expects increasing interest in use of this technology.


This is an encouraging development and one that communities across the country would do well to investigate. For more info on this process, see
