The process is all part of the new sifting project that will be active for another six to eight weeks, she said. Through DNA testing it will be confirmed whether the fragments are human remains, said Ms. Borakove.

Some 60 truckloads of WTC debris have been brought to Fresh Kills since 2010.

Since 2006, new sifting technology has resulted in 34 additional identifications.

“Potential human remains” of 1,634 of the 2,753 victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks have been identified thus far, according to Deputy Mayor Caswell Holloway.
