RECYCLING INDUSTRY LEADER, BILL GUPTAIL RETIREMENT

 

William ‘Gup’ Guptail, a 46 year employee of General Kinematics Corporation, has officially announced his retirement.

 

A recycling industry leader and innovator, Guptail was inducted by the CDRA (Construction Demolition Recycling Association) into the C & D Recycling Hall of Fame in 2013. Involved in the Recycling Industry since the early 1980’s, his involvement in Construction & Demolition was an outgrowth of his work in the waste-to-energy industry where companies were looking for opportunities to recover various commodities from the Construction & Demolition waste stream.  Beginning his career with General Kinematics as an Engineer, Gup’s innate mechanical curiosity, hands on approach, and amiable personality helped him to move along to positions of Sales Engineer, Industry Sales Manager, and his most recent position of Director of Recycling.

 

Guptail pioneered and patented several innovations into C & D sorting systems including:

 

  • Primary FINGER-SCREEN™TM for size separation and improved recovery rates from -40% to >60%
  • Secondary B-Line for fines – improved recovery rates to >70%
  • Introduced the Vibratory DESTONER  for density separation – improved recovery rates >80%
  • Modified internal design changes of the DESTONER  for enhanced separation
  • Near Zero Dust Control using recirculating air to minimize the dust emissions

 

The General Kinematics core philosophy of combining innovative technologies with production process insight & creativity to deliver the highest quality equipment & solutions in the industry is demonstrated by Bill’s career and commitment to seek improvements through design changes in more than 50 C & D Sorting facilities across the United States, Canada, and Europe. General Kinematics cannot thank Bill enough for his many years of service to the company and the Recycling industry.
