A recent article on Recycling Today tells us the following:  “GEP Fuel & Energy Indiana has proclaimed plans to open a recycling center with a scrap-plastics-to-fuel site in Camden, Indiana. Various Indiana gov’t officials joined GEP leaders for the announcement.  GEP Fuel & Energy Indiana is a joint-effort between U.S. Energy Logistics, Toledo, OH, & GEP Fuels. The organization says it plans to invest $100M to build a 450K-sq.-foot recycling site there. Construction on the venture is expected to begin by the 1st quarter of 2017. This facility will process recyclable & non-recyclable plastics into a variety of viable end products. Also, the companies plan to construct an adjacent facility for $200M that will convert lower-value scrap that can’t economically be recycled into a fuel for the transportation markets.

U.S. Rail Corp.is expected to transport about 1,500 tons of plastics each day. Don Willis, who will manage the recycling side of the project, says the higher value plastic scrap will be recycled & sent to end markets such as the vehicle industry. The low value & zero-value plastic processed there will be transported to an energy facility on a conveyor. Steve Hogan, the president, says they decided to have the site in because of its closeness proximity to consumer plastics. The total capital investment for the project is $303M. The IN Economic Development Corp. (IEDC) offered GEP Fuel & Energy Indiana up to $2M in performance-based tax subsidies on the company’s job creation efforts. Most of the plastics that will be handled and used will be recovered from auto shredder residue (ASR). Hogan thinks the the recycling center will accept 1M tons of ASR annually, about 40 rail cars each day. Willis says the bulk of the ASR will be shipped on rotary cars. Recycling will include magnets & eddy current separators. Green Machine will be the maker of the sorting line.

In a statement, Jim Schellinger, president of the IDEC, said they were pleased they chose to locate here in Indiana. Indiana’s boasts low-cost, low-tax, decreased-regulation business environment. Hogan further added that it has taken the company 3.5 years to select the right technology for the site, supplied by Foy Group Ltd., a partner on the energy side of the project.” The complete article is available here.

In the June 21, 2016 edition of Recycling Today, an article titled ‘Arizona auto recycler reimbursed for off-target police raid’ was posted with the following news: “The Hendrix Salvage Company in Phoenix, AZ was the target of a suspected auto theft plot and was raided by city and state authorities in 2013. This raid was covered by reported by media outlets, including RT. Hendrix and its owners recently were cleared of the charges, and more than (2) years later Hendrix has announced an agreement with the city and state designed in part to help the firm restore its reputation. According to attorneys with Simpson P.C., Hendrix accepted $180K from the city of Phoenix & the state of Arizona in order to settle a suit the organization filed after no charges resulted from the raid.

The raid was part of an sting of regional salvage yards known at the time as “Operation Tin Man.” Authorities raided the salvage yards in 2013, charging some staff for allegedly trafficking in stolen property. Officers seized bank accounts and equipment from Hendrix, and law enforcement authorities alerted regional media outlets in advance so they could publicize the raids. Authorities later conducted a press conference to make criminal allegations against some Hendrix family members.” According to their attorneys, investigators got it wrong. No criminal charges were ever filed against owners Lyle or Ronnie Hendrix nor against any Hendrix Salvage Company employee. All of Hendrix’ seized equipment & accounts were ultimately brought back to the firm in 2014.

Hendrix Salvage is a commercial auto recycler that has been doing business in the area for more than 15 years and always had been a friend to the PD and the community. The investigators should have just talked with us instead of rushing in with guns & taking everything. The state began forfeiture proceedings in January 2014, but those ended with a dismissal and the property being returned. Hendrix only wanted an apology, a simple apology, and that would have been the end of it.  Instead, Forrester says, when no apology was forthcoming, the subsequent settlement even the playing field.” The complete article is available here.

Jessica Flores of FOX 10 reported that Lyle Hendrix described the raid as “It was kind of like an army style raid, they threw a lot of people on the ground, marched them outside & confiscated everything in the yard and the equipment.” Her article is available here.

A July 9, 2016 article in the New Haven Register authored by Luther Turmelle titled ‘Electric vehicle program in Connecticut gets infusion of cash’ told us the following: “A Connecticut-based incentive program to encourage more purchases of electric vehicles is getting a new flow of cash. According to Rob Klee, commissioner of the state Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, The CT Hydrogen & Electric Automobile Purchase Rebate (CHEAPR) program is getting $1M.

Klee says it’s the perfect time to think about the advantages offered by EVs. One of the larger advantages is the rebate available which offers up to $3K for those who buy or lease an eligible vehicle. Without the new funding, the CHEAPR program was projected to run out of money by July. The CHEAPR program was launched in May 2015 using state funds as part of an agreement to allow Northeast Utilities to merge with MA-based NSTAR and form what is known as Eversource Energy. A 2nd wave of money from the state’s merger agreement with the utilities was in addition to the incentive program.

Since its launch, the program delivered just over $1.5 million for the purchase or lease of over 600 new vehicles. A total of 159 fully electric vehicles such as the Nissan LEAF, as well as 467 plug-in style cars that have range extending or hybrid capabilities such the Chevy Volt were sold. David Stevens, owner of Stevens Ford, said he was pleased to hear that CT was offering additional funding to the program.  Stevens Ford is one of the many dealers offering vehicles in the program.

Rich Ogurick, chairman of Cheshire’s Energy Commission, says locating a charging station, which has outlets for (2) vehicles, was difficult. Eric Richter, VP of Property Management for Philips Edison, said they plan to install fifty of these in the next year. Richter says that those who already have EVs can recharge their cars at zero cost for the next (3) years if they use the station outside Big Y.

The incentive program is administered through the EVConnecticut, an agreement between DEEP and the state DOT. The vehicle rebates from the CHEAPR program function on a sliding scale. The maximum rebate amount of $3,000 is available for lease or purchase of EVs with the best battery capacity. Other offerings include $1,500 and $750 for electric vehicles that travel shorter distances.

Our topic here is the recent drop in the scrap prices in the US.

In the January 15, 2016 edition of wastedive.com, Arlene Karidis composed a story titled ‘Devalued scrap metal prices continue to reduce supply for recyclers’ with the following highlights: “Scrap metals such as steel, copper, aluminum and brass, have fallen 65% in value since late 2014, and many are hoping for a market turnaround. At Pacific Steel & Recycling and others they’ve seen a 50% to 55% reduction in what comes their way. Patrick Kons, Pacific’s VP of Operations, says they are down to (7) employees and have halted production at two other facilities.  Steve Moltzan, owns a Great Falls company that sells auto components and says auto bodies are at their lowest price point in over 30 years.

China’s flailing economy and drop in scrap import, a stronger U.S. dollar deterring export, and overproduction of new ore have all had an effect with this trend. US scrap metal exports dropped 4.7% in the 1st half of 2015 and recyclers and those who sell commodities are feeling the squeeze. Mr. Kons anticipates a turnaround, saying it took 14 months for prices to fall so far, and it may take much longer for them to come back. His recycling scrap yard is open & ready amid these global commodities with cyclical prices.” The article is available in its entirety at this link.
