Recycling Council of Ontario recognizes GEEP.

Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP), headquartered in Barrie, Ontario, was presented with a silver award for Waste Diversion Program Operator at this year's Ontario Waste Minimization Awards held recently in Toronto. The Recycling Council of Ontario presents the annual award.

GEEP has introduced technology known as the ERP I system, which is in full production at its Barrie facility.

With ERP I, non-disassembled electric and electronic products are shredded by a heavy-duty crusher. Coarse ferrous and nonferrous parts are taken out automatically, while hand-picking stations are used to remove additional valuable fractions, such as motors, transformers, stainless steel parts and circuit boards.

Many of these electronic products contain considerable quantities of mixed plastics, which are separated for use in a "de-polymerization" process that the company will introduce in the first quarter of 2007 at the Barrie location under the name NanoFuels Solutions Inc.

According to GEEP, its ERP I recycling plant is designed to recycle about 6,000 pounds of electric and electronic scrap per hour at a low cost.
