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.Premium
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.
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 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.

Manufacturing, metal fabrication and metal finishing require multiple washing processes to remove residue, oil, acids and other lubricants and contaminants before during and following various process steps. This generates large volumes of wastewater containing alkaline, acid solutions, heavy metal wastewaters, paint, plating residue wastewater, and other metal fabrication wastewaters. Wastewater and wash water from spills and floor cleaning must also be properly disposed. These manufacturing waste waters...

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...

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.Premium
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...

Printing and Photo Processing Wastewater Treatment and Disposal. The printing industry and photographic processing produce a tremendous amount of waste water, from washing prints, cleaning between color changes, cleaning ink shipping containers and cleaning ink delivery systems. The wastewater produced is often contaminated with heavy metals and other highly toxic materials.

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...

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.
