Recycling Makes Sense
In our modern industrial world, recycling has become a global necessity in order to save and reutilize vital natural resources. In view of this, recycling itself is a huge and profitable industry offering many business opportunities.

Cable Recycling - The Old Way and the New Way
The production of cable scrap in the western world amounts to approximately 1,000 tons per 1 million population. This represents a huge mountain of precious natural resources, particularly copper and aluminum. The old way of handling cable scrap was to burn it, in order to get rid of the plastic insulation. This approach has serious harmful effects on nature and human beings. The burning process of PVC is well known to cause serious environmental damages. For example, very toxic hydrochloric acid is often a by-product when PVC is burnt and comes in contact with water. Burning of cable scrap is today prohibited by governments in almost every country. However, illegal burning of cable scrap is still practiced widely in certain countries.

Redoma Recycling offers a much wiser solution - efficient and profitable recycling plants without harmful effects. We are offering an environmental-friendly technology for recycling of all types of scrap cable. We have developed a unique dry, mechanical process which does not generate any dangerous gases or toxins and free from harmful effects on nature and human beings.

We have a strong commitment to providing efficient recycling equipment and know-how which can both help to preserve nature and its precious resources, while at the same time providing profitable business opportunities for all our customers.

Recycling Makes Sense - it is as simple as that.

The corporate roots of Eldan Recycling A/S dates back to 1956, and when E. Laursens Maskinfabrik A/S was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, by Ejvind Laursen. The company produced and marketed various types of scrap shears.

In 1971 the company moved to new and bigger production facilities in Faaborg on Funen, Denmark.

In 1980 Steen Laursen took over the company from his father, Ejvind Laursen and the company changed its name to Eldan. The name Eldan originates from E (Ejvind) L (Laursen) and DAN (Denmark). The activities on the export market were intensified and today Eldan markets its system solutions globally. Contact with customers is maintained through own sales offices as well as an extensive agent network.

Over the years the company extended its product portfolio and today it includes cable strippers, alligator shears, ACSR shears, machines and complete plants for processing of e.g. tyre, cable, electronics (WEEE), aluminium. Since the beginning the company has specialized in developing and manufacturing of machines and plants for the recycling industry.

In 1999 Eldan was sold to the large Swedish business group Carl Bennet AB (website) with Steen Laursen remaining as Managing Director of the company. Since 2000 Eldan has been a part of the environmental section of Carl Bennet AB - Lifco AB (website).

In 2001 Eldan moved to its current, larger facilities in Faaborg.

In 2005 Toni Reftman was made Managing Director of Eldan preparing the company for Steen Laursen’s retirement.

In 2008 Eldan Recycling expanded their production facilities considerably by adding two new workshops to the premises and today the premises of Eldan Recycling A/S is covering an area of 10.000 m2. This step was taken to meet the high demand for Eldan equipment and to shorten the delivery time. This also gives an excellent opportunity carry out trials with the specific material types.

Until 2009 Steen Laursen was involved in the company as a business development manager and consultant.

In 2014 49.9% of the Lifco Group was introduced and noted on the Nasdaq Stockholm’s main list. The majority (50.1%) of the Lifco Group is however still owned by Carl Bennet AB.
