    Recycling sorting solutions for the fines copper

    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.

    Waste Management Solutions for Mining Wastes

    Mining waste typically arises from the limitation of the installed technologies of an operation, e.g. where fines cannot be tolerated. They are associated with mine workings and often contain valuable and/or hazardous materials. The hazardous content, which are often the valuable fractions within this waste are typically metals. Spread of metal toxicants in association with tailings particles, through a combination of wind dispersion or if washed into the soil or rivers, can have a highly damaging effect on the environment. Crucially, as time moves on, the mine tailing of one generation become the resource of the next.

    Processing of LCD screens

    The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain valuable raw materials, such as metals and plastics, which have to be recovered in such a way, that the environment is not harmed. However, recycling specialists, Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH, have now developed an alternative: The company from Kaufering has developed an automatic processing system that enables mercury and other valuable raw materials to be easily extracted and recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.

    Waste sorting solutions for the municipal solid waste (msw)

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) contains recyclable fractions, such as plastics, mixed paper, cardboard, and metals. The demand for these materials is rising, compared with that for primary resources.

    Recycling equipments for electronic waste recycling (WEEE)

    The content of WEEE (electrical and electronic waste) gives recyclers various initiatives for recycling. It contains hazardous substances, such as lead, mercury or certain flame retardants, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. In 2012 approx. 64,900.000 ton electronic goods where produced and 49.000.000 ton electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) was generated. As the amount of sold electronic goods rise, the amount of WEEE rises. It is vital that this waste is taken care of properly.

    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for chlorine industry

    The mercury cell process is a formerly widely-used production technique for the production of chlorine and caustic soda. The liquid metal, mercury, acts as cathode (negative pole) in this process. In the past, the loss of mercury during the process (to air, soil and water) led to serious health and environmental problems. Therefore, most European chlorine producers have decided to phase out the mercury cell process by 2020. Nevertheless, even today, almost 6000 tons of mercury is used per year for chlorine production in Europe alone. As a result of this, yearly waste outputs contain around 1200 tons of mercury, which are stored on-site or sent off for disposal.

    Recycling sorting solutions for the ash recycling

    Incinerated municipal solids and other waste streams results in a significant amount of ash residue, which often contains valuable metals. The amount of this remnant being created globally is rapidly increasing due to legislation which prohibits landfilling and creates new incentives for incineration. TOMRA Sorting sensor-based systems allow waste management businesses to capitalize on today’s challenges whilst simultaneously enabling them to look to the future with confidence.

    Pre-sorted Material Sorting

    TOMRA can help you sort the value out of Pre-sorted material. The input material of pre-sorted plastics will usually contain materials such as bottles and foil. Before recycling, any impurities need to be cleaned out in order to sort out any residue of organic matter, metals, PVC or coloured PET. The material is checked for colour and material. In the bottle-to-bottle procedures highest and consistent quality standards are required.

    Pollutant Decontamination for the Wastewater Treatment Industry

    All described properties of Fe(0) nanoparticles can be even used for decomposition of pollutants contained in the waste water, mainly for treatment of industrial sewage and hutch water. The usage of nanoiron can represent a significant qualitative step in the classical technologies of water treatment including drinking water. The extremely reactive iron nanoparticles thus offer a possibility to solve long-lasting problems with a high content of uranium and arsenic in a variety of localities in the Central Europe. They can be also used for a reduction of the content of heavy metals, nitrates and phosphates in the drinking water. Just these inorganic pollutants, which are hardly or expensively removed by standard technologies, are effectively removed by Fe(0) nanoparticles.

  • Industrial Solution for gasification & synthetic gas

    Gasification and synthetic gas production from various waste products are becoming increasingly important energy recovery technologies. Often, the synthetic gas contains various hazardous contaminants including H2S, HCl and other acids, heavy metals, and tars. The gas requires cleaning before it is introduced in the engine or boiler. Most of these processes generate significant concentration of tars. The tars can vary from very low molecular weight to large and complex chains.

  • Energy and Fuels from Auto Shredder Residue (ASR)

    End of life vehicle processing recovers valuable recyclates and removes for recovery all pollutants from automobiles. After this process, the remaining vehicle is shredded for further treatment into smaller parts called Auto Shredder Residue (ASR) sometimes referred to as Auto Shredder Fluff or Car Fluff. ASR contains a mixture of all the different materials that make up the automobile, including metals, plastics, rubbers and textiles. This mixture of materials makes ASR a difficult waste to handle and potentially harmful to the environment. The Gasplasma® energy from waste process breaks down the ASR: Organic materials are transformed into a hydrogen-rich synthesis gas which is used to generate power / Inorganic materials are vitrified to become Plasmarok® /Any remaining ferrous and non-ferrous metals are recovered
