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 Natural Energy Solution uses a proprietary, patented process called Gas Phase Reduction (”GPR”). This is a highly effective, non-incineration method that converts all organic waste within the tire. The GPR technology converts all aspects of the tires to either a methane product gas or the steel and carbon black components, which are 100% recovered for recycling. The technology operates within a closed system with no stack or chimney.
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)...
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.
Cars, Boats, Trucks, Busses, Rail Cars, Aircraft, More... All vehicles – cars, boats, trucks, busses, rail cars, aircraft - must be regularly washed to remove road dirt and salt and other wastewater contaminates picked up from use, oil and solutions used for deicing. Boat wash wastewater, bilge wastewater and general marina wastewater present special problems for marina operators because of new regulations. As one example, the wash facility for a modest school bus garage can generate thousand of gallons of...
When automobiles are manufactured, each vehicle is painted by spraying a mist (paint mist) onto the car body and other parts. This process is referred to as the paint booth, and it ensures the beautiful finishing of car bodies and components and rust proofing. The excess paint that does not to cling to the car body and parts in the paint booth falls to the floor and is collected by water. This water is used as recycling water after removing the paint with water treatment chemicals.

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...
