  • Aluminium recycling

    Aluminium recycling is one of the most interesting topics at the moment, as aluminium is a highly sought-after raw material, just like steel. If it is processed properly, there is no limit to the reuse of aluminium. Recycled aluminium will not lose its quality through recycling as long as material of the highest possible purity is used. Currently, aluminium is shredded by means of shear balers to ...

  • Up to 30% of aluminium and steel could be reused

    Globally, up to 27% of all steel and 33% of all aluminium could potentially be reused, according to research. Significant barriers to reuse, such as component incompatibility between products and metal corrosion, must first be addressed if these reuse figures are to be achieved. Aluminium or steel can be recycled by melting it down and recasting into new products. Currently, 60% of steel ...

  • Briquetting of aluminium chips - more profitable then ever

    Companies which manufacture aluminium are under a rising cost pressure. In the recent past this industry has had to face the higher costs for coolants and also the increasing prices for the metal, while the sales prices are still under the same pressure as before.

  • Aluminium and copper balls made of highly sensitive data

    Today, these data are recorded digitally on computers, hard drives, digital recordings, floppy disks, USB flash drives, etc. When they have been used, they are often just thrown away. However the sensitive data that may be located on it could be reproduced at any time again. Only the destruction of the storage media can prevent this. Erdwich has developed a machine technology that simultaneously ...

  • Semiconductor and aluminium industries underestimate greenhouse gas emissions

    Emissions of the greenhouse gases (GHGs) tetrafluoromethane (TFM) and hexafluoroethane (HFE) reported by industry accounted for only around half actual levels measured in the atmosphere between 2002 and 2010, new research reveals.
