Mixed Signals - RT - Recycling Today. Several questions face auto shredder operators regarding the future of mixed, shredded metal grades. Recyclers of almost every material in North America have grown to expect consuming mills and plants in China to absorb a healthy percentage of the scrap materials they package and ship. Few materials or grades have been more reliant on the Chinese market than the mixed nonferrous metals churned out on a daily basis by operators of metals shredding plants. A number of recent developments in China, however, are causing producers of these grades to begin to examine what the mixed, shredded metals market will look like in an era when the market in China no longer provides a “bottomless pit” for these scrap metal grades.

A Second Great Wall Followers of general business news and economic indicators have been able to read a great deal in 2013 about shifts and changes taking place within China’s economy.

A strong drive toward innovation has enabled Huron Valley Steel to lift nonferrous separation to new heights. Some companies thrive on challenges. Huron Valley Steel Corp., Belleville, Mich., one of the world’s largest processors of nonferrous scrap, is certainly one of them. Walking through the company’s high-tech facility for sorting the nonferrous components of automobile shredder residue (ASR) is like a visit to the future of recycling. But there is more innovative technology currently under development that one company executive says will “make what we are doing today look simplistic.”

Plenty of automobile shredding operations use eddy current separators or even flotation systems to recover aluminum and zinc alloys from ASR, but Huron Valley has taken the process much further and has developed technology to process aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel and zinc from ASR into separate streams. After serving in World War II, he founded Fritz Bros. How is all this metal separated? American Recycler, October 2009 - Non-ferrous metal recovery builds. By Mike Breslin Scrap metal processors are becoming increasingly clever at wringing out the last dollar from their waste stream.

That includes recovering cleaner, greater weights of high value nonferrous metals. Ben Davis, manager of the magnetics division at Huron Valley Steel Corporation is considered by many in the industry as the dean of non-ferrous recovery. He had this to say about the state of the business, “A lot of shredders today have gotten away from autos and are going to smaller, low speed shredders for white goods because the volume of autos has gone down. The other major development over the past few years was development of image technology that senses and separates various non-ferrous by shape and color.”

In addition to processing nonferrous, Huron has been designing and manufacturing eddy current separation equipment for nearly 30 years, both for its own use and for sale to nonferrous recovery operations.

How to best recycle or handle auto shredder residue (ASR) remains a subject of debate and a topic for research. During the several decades of growing popularity enjoyed by auto shredding plants, how to best dispose of or recycle the nonmetallic fraction of shredded material has remained a critical issue.

With the European Union (EU) having set a 95% recycling rate target for end-of-life vehicles (ELVs), shredder operators, manufacturers and research teams hired by them have been focusing on recycling over disposal—with energy recovery occupying a spot straddling the two alternatives. There has been no shortage of companies touting a solution (or at least a better path compared to outright disposal) to treat or handle auto shredder residue (ASR). A non-scientist covering this aspect of the recycling industry faces limitations as far as critiquing these emerging recycling or energy recovery methods.

IES - a joint venture between European Metal Recycling (EMR) and Cranford, New Jersey based advanced gasification technology manufacturer, Chinook Sciences - claimed that once complete the plant will be the world's largest End-Stage-Recycling plant.

The joint venture added that it will be deploying new recycling techniques and Chinook Sciences' state-of-the-art RODECS recycling and gasification technology. The net result will be the production of 40 MW of environmentally sustainable electricity and the recovery of over 190,000 tonnes of additional recycled materials in the form of plastics, glass, clean aggregates and metals.

At Peel Scrap Metal Recycling Ltd, we actually have both types of scrap wire recycling machinery – a wire and cable granulating system known as a chopping line and wire and cable strippers.

CABLE & WIRE CHOPPER: If you are looking at larger volumes of scrap wire and cable to strip and process, it becomes important to examine the cost benefits of capital intensive versus labour intensive machinery, product quality and the versatility of the equipment. We made the business decision to invest in a chopping line. It is essentially a lean manufacturing process adding more value with less work and at lower cost. CABLE & WIRE STRIPPERS: We have two wire and cable stripping machines. One of them was purchased when we started the company 20 years ago. We added a second wire and cable stripper a few years later. However these cable and wire stripping machines are quite labour intensive when it comes to dealing with large volumes of insulated wire and cable.

Zorba: Small Particles Big Opportunities. The global market for recovered mixed metals is continuing to expand. But when it comes to Zorba, a mix of shredded and pre-treated non-ferrous scrap metals, most metal reprocessors and MRF operators are missing a trick. There are commercial opportunities to exploit this often overlooked material. By Jöerg Schunicht Many reprocessors are being limited by using only traditional processing methods for zorba, while others are selling on the mixed material instead of directly recovering high quality fractions themselves. Zorba is the collective term for shredded and pre-treated non-ferrous scrap metals, most usually originating from End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) or Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

Other non-ferrous metals found in Zorba include copper, lead, brass, magnesium, nickel, tin and zinc in elemental or alloyed (solid) form. The current market The potential market for these valuable fractions can be seen all around us in the products we use every day. Zorba's future.

Nous trions le verre – depuis plus de 20 ans !

L’introduction des séparateurs céramique-pierres-porcelaine (CPP) dans les années 1980 a ouvert l’ère du tri optique du verre. Depuis cette époque, Binder+Co AG fait référence dans le domaine de la préparation de cette précieuse matière première secondaire. Les exigences imposées aux systèmes de tri du verre ont évolué : chargés de l’élimination des contaminants présents dans le flux de verre, ils doivent désormais également procéder à un tri colorimétrique des débris de verre. Le système « BWG » fut à ce titre le premier à pouvoir trier le verre par couleur.

Depuis, la revalorisation du verre a gagné en importance et les exigences en matière de qualité se sont accrues. Actuellement, des machines et installations Binder+Co sont exploitées dans le monde entier. Depuis son lancement, le succès du système CLARITY ne s’est jamais démenti. From Fluff to Stuff: An Economic Solution? With 2015 set to see the tightening of EU legislation governing recycling quotas for end-of-life vehicles, it is becoming important to recycle fractions that have previously been discarded.

Andreas Bartl discusses new possibilities presented by shredder light fractions. It is well established that end-of-life products such as vehicles, white goods or mixed scrap undergo a shredding process. It consists of a heavy hammer mill pulverizing the waste, with a subsequent sorting step separating a heavy and a light fraction. Whereas the heavy fraction predominantly consists of metals which can be recycled, up until now there has been no adequate solution for the so called shredder light fraction (SLF). The light fraction contains a lot of plastics as well as fine inorganic materials such as glass, sand, dust and rust, as well as other organic compounds and metals in varying portions.

By applying mechanical processes, the SLF can be separated into plastics, fines and fluff. End-of-life directive. Home. Não está disponível. Scrap Metal Prices, Recycling News, Scrap Buyers -
