New York-based investment firm sells ACV Enviro after six years in its portfolio.

New York-based Kinderhook Industries LLC has announced the sale of ACV Enviro Corp., a hazardous waste management firm created by Kinderhook in late 2015. The buyer of ACV is not disclosed in Kinderhook’s announcement.

ACV is a regional provider of integrated hazardous and nonhazardous waste management services throughout the northeastern United States. ACV’s commercial and institutional customers include utilities, refineries, power plants, chemical manufacturing plants, academic and medical institutions.

In Waste Today's "Largest Haulers in North America of 2020" list, ACV Enviro ranked as the 17th largest hauler with revenues of $200 million. 

Avenel, New Jersey-based ACV Enviro was created by Kinderhook in November 2015 through the combination of Clean Venture Cycle Chem and Allstate Power Vac Inc. Kinderhook says it “recruited well-known industry executives to build a vertically integrated environmental solutions business and execute on an aggressive growth strategy by building a uniquely permitted footprint, investing in technology infrastructure as well as capabilities at its waste processing facilities, and completing three strategic add-on acquisitions.

“This is an outstanding outcome for Kinderhook, ACV, and its employees,” comments Rob Michalik, managing director of Kinderhook “The ACV team, led by Andy Shackett, executed on an aggressive growth strategy to build a highly strategic, vertically integrated environmental solutions business. We are very proud of the ACV team’s accomplishments and expect the company to continue its track record of success in the future.”

Kirkland & Ellis, Chicago, served as legal counsel to ACV, and Brown Gibbons Lang & Co, Cleveland,. served as ACV’s financial advisor for the transaction.

Company says its new product can offer landfill fire detection during off hours.

Ferndale, Michigan-based Fire Rover has introduced what it calls an early fire detection solution for landfills, adding to its fire detection and elimination product line.

The new product, OnWatch, is a remotely monitored, wireless early detection unit that uses a combination of thermal cameras and Fire Rover agents to detect and identify deep-seated fires, the company says.

“Landfill fires can be severe and can put facilities, equipment and workers at risk,” says Ryan Fogelman, a vice president with Fire Rover. “Keeping this in mind, we designed OnWatch to work not only for landfills but for outdoor piles, construction projects, wildfires, overflow tip floors, [composting] windrows and more.”

OnWatch is designed and made to withstand the harsh environments of landfills, says Fire Rover, including dust, wind and uneven surfaces. It is mobile, powered by both solar and wind, and uses 4G technology to communicate with Fire Rover agents.

The device is needed because some fires are not known to landfill operators until there is enough smoke to draw the attention of passersby, says the company. Such incidents can occur during off hours, weekends and holidays when crews are not there working the pile. If a fire is noticed during normal operating hours, an operator can add dirt or sand to the fire to cover or suffocate it.

When undetected fires burn both on the surface and deep into the pile, many issues can occur including landfill liner damage. While landfill liners are designed to be tough, too much fire, heat, suppressant agent and water can put the integrity of the liner at risk, Fire Rover says.

“At Fire Rover, our philosophy is the earlier you detect a fire, the better the outcome,” Fogelman says. "All of our solutions back that philosophy, including our thermal-only options, our boxless solution, our fire sprinkler replacement solution and now our OnWatch solution.”

He adds, “We’re learning more about the needs and wants of the industry, and we’re continuing to think outside the box and design proven solutions to combat the ongoing fire challenges the waste and recycling industry faces on a daily basis.”

The electric-powered waste collection trucks are available in Southern California at Velocity Truck Centers.

Los Angeles-based Battle Motors says it is now selling its electric-powered refuse truck, the Battle LNT EV, in Southern California through Velocity Truck Centers.

Battle Motors, which acquired Ohio-based refuse market truck maker Crane Carrier Company (CCC) earlier this year, also will present its Battle LNT EV (electric vehicle) at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Long Beach, California.

The Battle Motors LNT EV features an 82-inch cab, a customizable wheel base, multimode regenerative braking, a direct drive transmission, peak power of 500 horsepower, continuous power of 310 horsepower, and a peak output torque of 1,700-plus pounds per foot, according to the company.

Battle says it acquired CCC to add an EV offering to CCC’s existing diesel and compressed natural gas (CNG) product lines. “CCC’s refuse trucks have been through 75 years of continuous improvement, making them the best refuse truck on the market,” states the company.

“Velocity is excited to work with Battle Motors CCC in the development, sales and service of the new Battle LNT EV LCOE refuse truck,” says Eric Evans, national refuse manager for Velocity. “Velocity is a leader in the refuse segment, and our customers are eager to deploy zero emissions vehicle products as soon as possible.”

Comments Paul Marsolan, chief software officer of Battle Motors, “We wanted to create a fun, cool dynamic user interface in our trucks. We provide all the information on the truck in an easy-to-use interface that drivers are familiar with. If you’ve used a smartphone, you will really enjoy our Revolution operating system.”

He continues, “Drivers will get performance data on the instrument cluster. Service centers and fleet managers are not left out either—parts, down to the specific vehicle identification number, and service history is right at their fingertips. To make it as easy as possible we have included a QR code to easily share the parts data with a phone or desktop.”

Marsolan says the operating system gives the trucks “an onboard computer system to pass actionable performance, parts, and service data to fleet managers, service dealers, and drivers via [the] onboard digital instrument cluster and hosted server environment.”

Battle Motors says it is committed to accelerating the world's transition to sustainable energy through manufacturing the most durable and performance-driven class 7 and 8 electric trucks.
