Recovery of ferrous and non-ferrous
As a result of ongoing innovation, reprocessing techniques have through the years become increasingly sophisticated. As a matter of course we remove all ferrous and the more course non-ferrous materials (2-50 mm.) from the chain.
At the same time, we are able to recover non-ferrous materials from very extremely fine fractions of bottom ash (0-2 mm). These may, for example, include precious metals such as gold, silver and copper, as well as aluminium, chrome, nickel, zinc, and brass. Recovery of raw materials from waste is also called ‘urban mining’.
