The world is becoming increasingly more aware of the impact that business and business waste has on the environment, along with pressure from global and local governments to reduce each businesses carbon foot print. Alpco Recycling, Inc. is able to help with all aspects of recovering & processing each of the following products to help increase profit, as well as account for the material taken out of the waste stream for industrial, commercial and small business customers.Composite decking board green product

The benefits of recycling wood are numerous, including preserving trees, protecting habitat, prolonging the lifespan of landfills, reducing the need for new landfills, maintaining air quality, providing cleaner energy and fuel, and reducing soil erosion. According to the U.S. EPA, there are now more than 500 wood processing facilities throughout the United States. Fortunately, that number is increasing as the number of landfills available for waste disposal has gone down from 8,000 in 1988 to less than 1,800 in 2006-a year in which nearly 14 million tons of wood waste was generated prior to recycling. The process by which wood waste could go through to be reutilized varies depending on the intended use.

Refurbishing is a common process for recycling wood. Rather than creating something new, this is simply the act of repairing and cleaning a broken wood product such as a crate or pallet. Mueller Pallets LLC in Sioux Falls, S.D., repairs, cleans and manufactures thousands of wood pallets each day. The company accepts unwanted wood from landfills, contractors, construction companies, waste disposal companies, and tree service providers and turns it into a variety of recycled wood products.

Since more companies than ever before are gaining permits to accept creosoted wood to recycle for biomass, opponents and environmentalists want to know what is being done to ensure the toxins are being properly removed-and if it is really environmentally safe. Enerkem, a leading producer of cellulosic biofuels, has developed a new technology to remove contaminates such as creosote from wood using a gasification and catalysis process.

Enerkem is colocated with a saw mill that recycles the middle part of the decommissioned power poles into construction wood, such as 2x4s. The remaining treated portions containing impurities cannot be recycled into construction wood. These pole residues are transformed into wood chips by the saw mill and transferred to Enerkem to be converted into ethanol.

In the first step, the wood chips or other feedstocks are dried, sorted and shredded to be stored in a container that is connected to the gasifier by a front-end feeding system capable of handling fluffy material, without the need to pelletize. Slurries or liquids may also be fed into the gasifier through appropriately designed injectors. The carbonaceous materials, such as biomass treated with creosote, are converted into a synthetic gas-consisting mostly of carbon monoxide and hydrogen-through a chemical gasification process.

More and more architects, designers, builders and property owners are replacing 100 percent wooden building materials with a composite material made from recycled plastic and wood wastes. An important benefit of plastic is its ability to synergistically combine with other materials like wood, metal and glass. The advantages of using plastic-wood composites go far beyond finding a creative way to recycle.

For example, plastic-wood composites are lightweight, easy to install, durable, easy to maintain, resistant to weather damage and corrosion, easy to customize and incredibly strong.

Typical wood-plastic composites are made of wood from recovered sawdust, pulp fibers, peanut hulls, bamboo, or straw, as well as from a variety of recycled plastic resins, which bond and reinforce fibers. Commonly used resins include polyester, polyethylene, vinyl ester, modified acrylic, epoxy, phenolic and polyurethane. Wood plastic composite Decking used for terraces
