Previously, cable and wire materials were often lost in the treatment and sorting process, resulting in a financial loss due to the high proportion of copper they contain. TOMRA sorting technologies are capable of detecting these wires, transferring them to a metal product and then finally sorting them in a further step into a cable fraction of outstanding purity.
The growing demand for high-value, secondary raw materials renders targeted recycling increasingly attractive. Modern TOMRA Sorting technology generates clean non-ferrous metal fractions in customer shredder operations and results in valuable scrap metal gains.
The value of Zorba – shredded non-ferrous metals originating from end-of-life vehicles or WEEE – continues to increase, as the demand for copper, nickel and brass created by modern lifestyles is on the rise. TOMRA’s sensor-based sorting technology can double the value of Zorba.
The widespread use of electronic products has created an enormous demand for the sorting of non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminum. To be usable, these non-ferrous metal fractions must be treated to a high degree of purity. Thanks to TOMRA’s efficient sorting technology, separating these materials from metal waste makes is worthwhile in every aspect.
Copper granulate, recovered by the recycling process of copper wires and cables, has the potential to be a high value resource. However, even after the removal of impurities, polymers and ferrous from the granulate, it can still contain small amounts of lead, brass or aluminum – often up to three percent. TOMRA sorting technology removes the remaining pollutants efficiently and automatically from the copper granulate – with an especially high efficiency of lead removal.
Irrespective of the used collection system and the corresponding task, we design systems that grant 100% efficiency. Various countries have different waste collection systems, resulting in different tasks for the sorting technology. For example, packaging waste mainly consists of plastics, paper and glass. Single-stream waste mainly consists of dry, mixed waste (paper, cardboard, films, plastics, metals, aluminium, and in many cases also glass). Heavy, mixed waste often also contains bulky materials etc. The...
Getting economic value from landfill waste like automotive shredder residue (ASR) is a big challenge that can have a big payoff. Vulcan® Systems Drying Technology is the key component of material preparation when separating ASR waste to reclaim energy and metals.
Vulcan® ASR Dryer Systems are manufactured to suit each client’s individual project needs and custom-designed specifically to dry ASR, making the material easy to transport, separate, and handle. This drying system consists of a drum with a burner that...
