America: Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has acquired National Recovery
Technologies (NRT) that manufactures optical sorting equipment for the solid
waste and recycling industries, among others.
“NRT was founded by some of the brightest scientific
minds in the industry and its values have been based on technology innovation,
quality of manufacturing and a strong commitment to customer support, values
that BHS has as well. Today NRT produces the best optical technology on the
market, which strengthens BHS’ position as a global leader in providing the
most state-of-the-art and durable material recovery systems in the
industry,” said BHS CEO Steve Miller.

systems. NRT leads the industry in plastic bottle and flake sorting technology,
claiming the world’s largest installed capacity in PET plastic reclamation plants.
BHS is currently building the largest and most sophisticated
material recovery facilities in the world. This acquisition gives the company
an additional resource to utilize as it continues to seek cutting edge
solutions for a wide range of processing needs.
Bulk Handling Systems said clients around the globe choose

construction and durability, and unmatched customer service.
BHS has built some of the biggest and most durable MRFs in
the world – and they are achieving the highest throughput, recovery, and purity
rates in the industry.
