The unique recycling system,

successfully implemented in Scandinavia

3 important characteristics to remember:

A)GRI makes recycling on commercial terms=> We know how to establish competitive systems

=> Nowhere in Europe is there a ban on landfilling

B)GRI has a background from the demolition industry => We can handle all types of gypsum wallboard waste

C)Low transport cost is “the name of the game” when establishing commercial recycling systems => Our system and concept is focussed on exactly that

The unique recycling system,

successfully implemented in Scandinavia

The 4 main components of the system:

A)Dumpsters: Gypsum wallboard waste is deposited in specially developed dumpsters

B)Logistics: The materials are collected and brought to central warehouses

C)Recycling Unit: The recycling unit is at the warehouse transforming the materials into Gypsum powder

D)Reprocessed waste supplied to wallboard plants The Gypsum powder is brought to the Gypsum wallboard manufacturers who can use it directly in the production

Re. A) Dumpsters:

  • Specially designed by GRI to allow for easy filling and easy removal of the plasterboard waste; equipped with lids, the top lid being hydraulic assisted
  • Contract manufactured for GRI; sold or leased to the customers for 80 $ per month. Customers own container/dumpster can also be used
  • The 40 cubic yards dumpsters contain 7-8 tons wallboard waste
  • Other dumpsters will be used as appropriate (30 cubic yard, 10 cubic yard front end loaded etc). Always with top lid.
slide9

Re. B) Logistics system:

  • Dumpsters are at new building, reconstruction and demolition sites, at waste transfer stations + public recycling centres etc.
  • Dumpsters are unloaded according to needs, and brought to the nearest GRI warehouse.
  • The collected wallboard waste is weighed on the truck, and this information is used to invoice the customer – typical price per ton is 80 $. Price includes collection.

Re. B) Logistics system, continued:

  • The recycling unit is mobile and can easily be moved around from warehouse to warehouse, allowing an optimal location of the warehouses to minimise transportation cost
  • Dismantling/setting up of the unit can be done in a few hours
  • The warehouses should be located close to a gypsum wallboard plant

Re. C) Recycling unit:

  • Specially designed and developed by GRI
  • Based on proprietary technology/patents
  • Produces recycable gypsum powder and paper separately. The paper can be reused (animal bedding, building products etc.)
  • Capacity: Up to almost 100.000 tons p.a.
  • Dimensions: L*W*H = 80*10*13 feet. Weight 52 tons

Re. C) The recycling unit - continued:

Capable of handling new construction waste and demolition waste:

  • Acceptable:

- Gypsum waste based on synthetic or rock

gypsum raw materials

- Virgin wallboard cut-offs - Wallboard underlayers/dunnage

- Complete boards or broken parts - Gypsum ceilings, floors, walls etc. - The gypsum waste may contain nails and screws

- Wallpaper, glass tissue and other wall coverings on the gypsum boards

  • Non-acceptable: - Plastics and foils - Insulation materials (glass wool/stone wool/Rockwool) - Steel rails and bars - Wood - Other impurities

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

  • Gypsum Wallboard waste is NOT banned from landfills in Denmark !
  • 5 million inhabitants in Denmark and similar size to MA
  • Started in the fall of 2001 with collection activities.
  • 400 containers out in the market: 85% 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 65% of all gypsum wallboard 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 close to the 2 wallboard plants in Denmark
