MECHANICAL AND BIOLOGICAL TREATMENT PLANT LOCATED IN MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA IS DESIGNED TO RECEIVE AND HANDLE MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE GENERATED IN BERKELEY COUNTY AND PRODUCE N.H.S.M. ALTERNATIVE FUELS FOR INDUSTRIAL USERS.
THIS PROJECT REPRESENTS AN IMPORTANT MILESTONES FOR ENTSORGA, WHICH CONCLUDES A LONG PATH OF RESEARCH STARTED 15 YEARS AGO TO FIND A SAFE, SUSTAINABLE AND CLEAN ALTERNATIVE TO LANDFILL DISPOSAL, AND THE FIRST ENTSORGA FACILITY IN NORTH AMERICA.

Entsorga has provided the technology design and proprietary equipment for operations just for the biological mechanical treatment plant (MBT) which is processing unsorted MSW and post MRF waste streams to an EPA approved NHSM alternative fuel. This $30 mil project, is demonstrating how an internationally proven circular model can be adapted and delivered here in US within $50 / ton tipping fees markets .
Entsorga has supplied a Mechanical Biological treatment plant Bee with H.E.Bio.T.™ (High Efficiency Biological System) process to receive Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in addition to 30,000 t / y of industrial and commercial waste, for a total capacity of 110.000 t/a. The plant, located about 80 miles west of Washington D.C. will handle Municipal Solid Waste from Berkeley county, producing renewable fuel suitable for coprocessing in cement facilities.
