Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), Eugene, Oregon, has launched the BHS Value Series, a series of six videos that outlines value drivers behind a materials recovery facility (MRF) investment. The story is told through dozens of interviews with the people of BHS, Nihot Recycling Technology, Amsterdam; National Recovery Technologies (NRT), Nashville, Tennessee; and Zero Waste Energy (ZWE), Pleasant Hill, California. The first chapter, titled Integration, is available on BHS’ website.
“The decision to invest in a recycling system, like any investment, inherently carries a certain degree of risk,” Steve Miller, BHS CEO, says. “Our customers are under increased pressure from their stakeholders to increase recovery and are simultaneously facing downstream pressure to increase end-product quality. This series examines the prepurchase factors a MRF buyer should consider to find the integrated solution that mitigates risk and drives superior financial results.”
The most important consideration, BHS says, is performance—recovery, purity, throughput and uptime—but there are other considerations that determine success. Potential customers should look for a partner that can design and deliver a high-performance solution and be supportive and collaborative throughout the life of the system, the company says. The Value Series explores these various considerations to assist buyers in making this decision.
“In 2014 we launched our MSW Video Series which received excellent feedback from the industry,” Peter Raschio, BHS marketing manager, says. “With the Value Series, we’re taking it a step further, featuring a wide variety of interviews from different disciplines and in a completely unscripted format. This series explores the factors that MRF buyers should consider so that they gain a competitive advantage in their business.”
The six chapters are titled Integration, Innovation, Design, Execution, Performance and Collaboration. Chapters two through six will release in one-month increments. To view the chapters as they’re released, go to the BHS LinkedIn page and YouTube channel.
