Parallel Products is expanding its operation in New Bedford. These are exciting times, and we look forward to sharing our progress throughout our process with all of our neighbors.
Currently, we are in the infancy stages working closely with state and local agencies in site and process reviews to ensure strictest compliance with all applicable environmental guidance and regulations.
At the heart of our due diligence is a concentration on mitigating any potential environmental impacts associated with the facility. Mitigation measures focus on noise, air quality (e.g. odor), traffic, storm water, etc.
Parallel Products remains true to its business culture and mission of providing sustainable solutions in the recovery/reuse industry. Our primary focus is to consolidate waste materials for efficient processing/recovery and cost-effective transportation to off-site reuse and disposal outlets.
At this new facility, our processes, all of which will be conducted inside, will continue to be focused on the extraction of recyclable materials separated into useable commodities and shipped in and/or out of state for repurposing as post-consumer recycled products. These will include glass, paper fiber, metals, plastics, etc. Source separated food waste will not be accepted at the facility. Any residual or non-recyclable materials will be minimized, baled and shipped out of state to licensed landfills and/or incinerators.
The proposed biosolids plant will accept and reduce the moisture of the material from up to ninety-seven percent (97%) moisture content down to approximately seven percent (7%). The dried residual may then be reused off-site for appropriate beneficial uses and/or may be landfilled based upon existing market conditions.
