The key to success in Gypsum/Plasterboard Recycling

Cost of waste collection and transportation

Cost of waste reprocessing

ERCCO Gypsum Recycling International A/SGypsum Recycling - The Successful Scandinavian Solution

The key to success in Gypsum/Plasterboard Recycling

  • In recycling collection is the name of the game; transport costs is by far the most important cost and without effective systems and concepts to reduce the transport cost no commercial recycling system can be established

  • Therefore a recycling unit is not enough to secure commercial viable gypsum recycling systems - more is needed

  • For commercial viable recycling a complete system is needed to be successful:

    - Specially developed containers for easy filling and removal

    - A logistic system capable of assuring an effective collection,

    handling and invoicing of the waste owners

    - A Mobile Recycling Unit to lower transport costs by servicing

    more recycling plants, and capable of handling new construction

    waste as well as demolition waste

    - Customers that can benefit directly from the recycled materials

ERCCO Gypsum Recycling International A/SGypsum Recycling - The Successful Scandinavian Solution

Why Gypsum/Plasterboard waste Should be Recycled ?

Because

  • Otherwise app. 5 million tons of plasterboard waste will be landfilled in the US/Canada

  • Recycling is the only solution that will preserve natural resources

  • Recycling will help the Gypsum/plasterboard manufacturers to obtain the cheapest raw materials of high quality

  • Recycling will improve the environmental image of the Gypsum/plasterboard industry

  • Recycling will help remove the legislative pressure on the manufacturers; “cradle to grave” responsibility

  • Recycling will help remove pressure towards banning of landfilling of gypsum/plasterboard waste

  • Because it can be done, now !

ERCCO Gypsum Recycling International A/SGypsum Recycling - The Successful Scandinavian Solution

Why Gypsum/Plasterboard waste should be recycled ?

Because the industry can gain from gypsum recycling:

  • GRI is the world leader in commercial gypsum recycling systems and has proven as the first that a beneficial gypsum recycling system based on separate collection can be established

  • We offer to help solve the Gypsum industry’s recycling problem (and possible future duty to take care of own waste) in a proven and beneficial manner- at no cost and - with no investment required for the industry- and with lower raw materials prices for the industry

  • GRI hereby help the Gypsum industry to move ahead of the demands from politicians and environmentalists and remove the possible legislative pressure

  • A co-operation with GRI is a win-win situation

Re. D) Contract with Plasterboard Manufacturers:

  • GRI makes contract with gypsum board manu- facturers for the delivery of recycled gypsum

    powder for a price per tons, which is less the

    cost of virgin raw materials

  • GRI guarantees the quality of the supplied powder

  • This assures the gypsum board manufacturers of a stable, low cost supply of high quality materials

  • No investment required at the gypsum board manufacturing plants to utilise recycled gypsum powder

  • Up to 25% of raw materials in one batch can be recycled powder

  • The powder can be mixed with FGD/DSG as well as rock gypsum

Summary:

How does the system from GRI differ from what other suppliers can offer?

  • It is a commercially driven system, that works because all parties are gaining advantages by participating in it

  • It is a complete system with all the necessary elements; especially for assuring low transport cost

  • It is based on the concept of multiple smaller warehouses and a mobile recycling unit to optimise locations and transportation costs

Lessons from Denmark, from the first full-scale

gypsum recycling programme in Europe

  • Plasterboard waste is NOT banned from landfills in Denmark !

  • Started in the fall of 2001 with collection activities.

  • 250 containers out in the market: 50% of all public waste transfer stations are now covered with GRI containers and increasing fast

  • Other main suppliers of gypsum waste include construction and demolition companies

  • Presently more than 55% of all gypsum/plasterboard waste in Denmark is being recycled by GRI and increasing fast.

  • Danogips (Knauf) and Gyproc (BPB) receive and use the recycled gypsum powder for production of new virgin boards

  • Warehouses in Hobro close to Danogips and in Kalundborg close to Gyproc

Activities in other European Countries

  • The system is established with collection in all 3 Scandinavian countries

  • The system will be expanded to cover 3 additional European countries in the fall

  • All systems have been established commercially - nowhere in Europe is landfilling banned !

  • “Small” countries are covered by using a recycling unit from one of the other countries

  • “Large” countries are having their own dedicated recycling unit

  • Everywhere the system is based on the principle of multiple plants/warehouses

  • GRI is cooperating with local partners in each European country

ERCCO Gypsum Recycling International A/SGypsum Recycling - The Successful Scandinavian Solution

Consequences for the gypsum/plasterboard industry

  • The gypsum industry can leave recycling of gypsum materials to competent people, who are familiar with waste collection and recycling on commercial terms

  • A complete system will be established by GRI in cooperation with a local partner

  • There are no costsnor investments required for the industry to have a recycling programme established in their area

  • The industry will absorb the recycled materials, and by doing so the industry will take advantage of the following:

    • Improved environmental profile and image

    • An additional stable source of high quality materials

    • Recycled materials at a price below that of virgin materials

  • A co-operation with Gypsum Recycling International is a win-win situation for the gypsum/plasterboard industry


  • Gypsum recycling the successful scandinavian solution henrik lund nielsen mba chairman

    ERCCO Gypsum Recycling International A/SGypsum Recycling - The Successful Scandinavian Solution

    Consequences for the potential system partner

    • The partner will get access to a proven system based on proprietary technology with excellent profit potential

    • The partner have no development costs and can rely on all the experience gained by GRI

    • GRI will assure the contract with the plasterboard plants for the powder

    • GRI will runningly support the partner to maximise the profit

    • The GRI concept limits the competition the partner will be exposed to

    • There are no fixed fees, fixed income or other profits to GRI from the transactions. GRI is only paid a fixed royalty fee per tons processed with the system, which is dependant on the volume and thereby the success of the partner. If the partner is successful so is GRI

    • A co-operation with Gypsum Recycling International is a win-win situation
