Titus Secondary MRF Services 2014
Summary
– Why a secondary MRF
• Compliments existing recycling industry collection system
• Provides solutions for several stakeholders
– What makes a Titus Secondary MRF work?
•
•
•
•
•
Patented equipment design
Patented data collection system
Patented on material composition from first MRFs
Strategic relationships with manufacturers and end users
Independent firm not tied to any single MRF company
– One Titus Secondary MRF covers 600,000 residences or up to
2.4 million people.
– Goal is at least one secondary MRF in every metropolitan area
with the focus on cities that need jobs and landfill diversion.

The key success factor for recycling a package used and discarded
by residents at homes, offices, apartments, and restaurants is
your product going into this bin!
Titus Secondary MRF:
Sorts on the first run: PET, HDPE, PP,
AL, FE, Paper, Cartons, glass
Titus LA Secondary MRF: Sorts on the first run:
PET, HDPE, PP, AL, FE, Paper, Cartons, glass
Titus LA Secondary MRF: Sorts on the second run: Low critical
mass packaging material: PLA, EPS/PS, PVC, PETG, Cartons,
Plastic Bags
Sorts of the future?
Innovative effective packaging materials. We do not believe the
best package has been invented and today’s existing recycling
system should not be a barrier to entry for innovative products
and packages

Trends Conclusion: Low Critical
Mass Manufacturers (LCMs)
• Packaging Companies that choose more sustainable packaging
material will need to develop incentives for recyclers to separate
– Possible artificial Scrap Price
– Cross Material Collection dollars to help reach critical Mass
– Pilot Projects to demonstrate cost effective method to
recycle and separate
• Fitness of use specifications
• Volume generation prior to critical mass
• The Titus Secondary MRF will establish recycling rates,
residential penetration, quality specifications and scrap values
for LCM packages that are collected and processed at single
stream material recovery facilities (first MRFs).
At Least 1 Facility in Every Major

Solution for material going to a MRF but not separated by a MRF
Solution for low critical mass materials
– Collection
– Sortation
– Market Economics
• Price to collect
• Price to sort
• Price to convert for reuse or recycle
Solution spans across state lines
MRF needs help! Face several challenges in the chain of recycling
– Quality poor
– Outlet is China and demand is sinking for low quality materials going to China
– By taking what the MRF does not recycle
• What is left has a better chance of being recycled by material type
• Quality of materials left improve
– Good for PET and HDPE
Packaging Companies
– Consumers demanding packaging that is renewable and recyclable
Funding is available to accelerate a new business given:
– green solution,
– job creating solution,
– State and Federal incentives/grants
