repurposedPROJECT:  repurposedMATERIALS, and our Texas ocean shipping terminal customer, were featured in InlandPort magazine for their great "repurpose" of conveyor belt.  At their transload shipping facility, they bring in big tanker cars full of liquids that they transload onto ships.  Management was concerned about the possibility of a tanker car someday leaking, and then the liquids leaching out into the soil.  So, they wanted to put down some kind of a liner between the tracks to prevent any seepage into the soil in case of a leak.  They chose to "repurpose" conveyor belting as their liner.

ourSTORY:  BEFORE:  Vail Ski Resort had 3,000' of steel "winch cat" cable that was obsolete for their application.  Vail is a company obviously very focused on sustainability.  Obviously, the steel cable could have simply been sent to a metal recycler, but Vail understands the waste hierarchy and that re-use is a higher and better use than recycling. AFTER: Joe Egan purchased the cable to put on his dredging machine.  "The steel cable is working fine so far; for our 'repurpose' it is performing as well as new cable on our dredge." Joe Egan in Minnesota.  I'm sure Joe, too, found a great way to invest the money that he saved buying used rather than buying new!  (This story was featured in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune Read Article >>
