The market developments on the steel scrap market as well as the increasingly strict framework conditions of the smelters pose great challenges to many companies in the secondary raw materials industry. The required quality parameters in connection with the strongly fluctuating prices of the secondary raw materials market underline the necessity to process contaminated steel scrap into high-quality secondary raw materials while keeping the amount of by-products to be disposed of as low as possible. IFE machines ensure efficient cleaning, screening and removal of impurities.
Clayton County Recycling's (CCR) Inc. metal recycling facilities are located in the Midwestern United States. They collect, process, recycle, and trade both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. A large number of the machines required for this purpose to process the scrap metals come from the environmental technology portfolio of IFE...
Today, copper ores mostly contain a copper content of 0.6 - 1 %, which means that 100 tons of rock have to be smelted for one ton of pure copper. It is therefore only natural that the CO2 footprint and energy balance of copper can be massively improved with the reuse of recycled copper. Due to the enormous amounts of copper bound up in cables, cable scrap is an essential feedstock.
From control screening to the final separation of magnetizable particles from the non-ferrous concentrate, IFE offers the right solution!
