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.
Innovative Sediment Processing and Beneficial Use Platform Permitted in Connecticut
Mon, Mar 26, 2018 – Press Release: Tipping Point Resources Group, LLC is privileged to announce that we are the first permitted Regional Dredged Material Manufacturing Facility (RDMMF) in the State of Connecticut. Based at New Haven Terminal in New Haven, Connecticut, the RDMMF will be a center for the processing and transport of sediments for upland beneficial use through the application of the Mobile Operating Sediment Engineering System (MOSES).
MOSES, is a barge mounted Pneumatic Flow Tube Mixing (PFTM) processing and stabilization process which has no air or water discharges. This environmentally acceptable and cost-effective treatment alternative offers solutions for projects that involve dredged materials that are unsuitable for aquatic placement. We anticipate that the RDMMF will be of regional, national and global interest to clients that have reached the ‘tipping point’ in their sediment management challenges.
