Tipping Point Receives Permit to Operate in Connecticut

Mon, May 14, 2018 – Tipping Point Resources Group, LLC has received a demonstration permit to operate its Regional Dredged Material Manufacturing Facility (RDMMF) in the State of Connecticut, the company announced on Mon, Mar 26, 2018.

Based at New Haven Terminal in New Haven, Connecticut, the RDMMF will be a center for processing and transport of sediments for upland beneficial use through the application of the Mobile Operating Sediment Engineering System (MOSES), a barge mounted Pneumatic Flow Tube Mixing (PFTM) processing and stabilization process, which has no air or water discharges. This treatment system is a solution for projects that involve dredged material that is unsuitable for aquatic placement with a beneficial use application. The PFTM and Grizzly were assembled at Carver Companies – Port of Coeymans on the Hudson River, New York.
