The Card Breaker works similar to a screening system, restricting oversized material from exiting the machine. The system is optional for most Bandit drum-style chippers, creating an even higher quality wood chip that is well suited for use in expanding biomass energy markets, the company says. "By creating a better chip, our custom- ers can have a better product to sell on the biomass fuel market," Bandit industries sales manager Jason Morey says.

Rosie's Natural Way is showcasing the Dub- bletten Urine Diverting Toilet . It is a sustain- able waste management system that captures valuable nutrients while decreasing pollution. The separated-bowls design reduces water consumption by 80 percent through separate fushing systems for liquid and solids.
