Entsorga West Virginia is a joint venture between Apple Valley Waste Technologies, Inc., Entsorga Italia S.p.A., and Chemtex Global N.V. Our new state-of-the-art facility, located in Martinsburg, WV, is the first resource recovery facility in the United States that will utilize Entsorga Italia’s proprietary HEBioT mechanical biological treatment (“MBT”) system.
By utilizing the HEBioT MBT system, Entsorga WV will recover bio-mass, plastics and other carbon based materials from the mixed municipal solid waste (MSW) stream and convert them into a safe alternative fuel source. When collecting these sources of MSW, Entsorga WV will remove other valuable recyclable commodities such as metals and glass from the HEBioT receiving stream and put them into the local municipality recycling stream. This is in conjunction with the Berkeley County Recycling program that is already in place. Together this will increase recycling rates for the municipality.
The MSW received will be converted to a clean burning alternative fuel (Solid Recovered Fuel or SRF) which will be used by large energy users as an alternative or supplement to fossil fuels. It is ideal for co-processing (cement plants, steel mills) for the production of renewable energy use in coal/oil burning power plants or for the production of renewable energy.
