BEIJING (Nov. 21, 2 p.m. ET) — U.S. recycling equipment maker National Recovery Technologies Inc. has opened a demonstration center in China, expanding its presence in what the company said is its largest export market.

Nashville, Tenn.-based NRT makes optical-sorting equipment, and said the demonstration center in Suzhou, China, will be led by sales manager Kevin Lu.

“We plan to be an integral part of Chinese recycling efforts for years to come,” NRT President Matthias Erdmannsdoerfer said in a statement.

The company also said it picked up an award for its recycling sorting technologies from the China Scrap Plastics Association at the group’s early November conference in Beijing.
