South Carolina recycling and energy recovery firm, RePower South, has begun
construction of the Berkeley County waste recycling equipment.
RPS development partners include Barnhill Contracting Company to construct
the facility; Bulk Handling Systems to provide the waste solution system, and
Loesche Energy Systemsto provide the fuel manufacturing system. RPS licenses the
fuel technology (ReEngineered FeedstockTM) from Accordant Energy. The facility
is slated to begin operations in early 2019.
“This method encourages citizens to do what is environmentally friendly,
without the hassle of sorting, proving it is possible to increase recycling
efforts in communities,” explained Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler.
“We are grateful and humbled by the courage, leadership, and support of
Berkeley County Supervisor William Peagler, the members Berkeley County Council,
and Berkeley County Water and Sanitation for selecting RePower to deliver this
cost-effective solution to their citizens.
Shepard continued: “We know there’s a better way for our nation to manage
garbage, and we are excited that Berkeley County agrees. We look forward to this
facility serving as a model for the world to move towards a more sustainable
waste and energy future.”
