Since 1991, the bi-directional dense medium separation technology for the recycling of automobile and industrial wastes is being used. For many years a principle client in this regard has been the Group Galloo. Group Galloo owns currently 50% of the AD REM shares. At first the Galloo staff was not convinced that a carrot separator could compete with the classical dense medium separators on the market at that time. So they set up a trial on +12 mm automobile shredder residue, running half of the test material through a conventional drum and the other half through this modified bi-directional carrot separator.

Dismantled ELVs (End of Life Vehicles) are sold to shredder operators and are reduced to fist-size pieces by large rotating hammer mills. The Shredder Light Fraction (SLF) is removed from the stream by suction, the intensity of which determines the amount and composition of the SLF. SLF consists essentially of plastics/rubber (~60%), Glass/sand i.e. mineral substances (~15%), Textiles/leather/wood (~10%), Paint dust/rust (~10%) and Residual metals (~5%). Other names for SLF are ASR (Automobile Shredder Residue) and Auto fluff or just fluff.
