Using sensor-based sorting technology to derive maximum value from ELV scrap

Martin Song, Area Sales Manager Korea at TOMRA Sorting, explores the challenges associated with recovering high volumes of high purity materials from end-of-life vehicles (ELVs), and considers how South Korea could learn from European best practice in this field of recycling.
 

TOMRA Recycling: Addressing the challenges of aluminium recycling

Demand for aluminium has risen steadily over recent years and is predicted to increase further over the next two decades, with both the European car industry and construction industry likely to remain major end users of this highly versatile metal.
 

Groundbreaking innovation - TOMRA Sorting Recycling enables the production of Low Magnesium Twitch from Zorba

Global leader in sensor-based sorting systems, TOMRA Sorting Recycling, is renowned for spearheading technological developments and its latest innovation is no exception. TOMRA has further developed X-TRACT units for magnesium removal, a ground-breaking x-ray-based solution which can separate magnesium from aluminum in products such as Zorba and Twitch.
 

New sorting technology can help overcome recycling business disruptions

Plant design automation and technology advancements lead to increased purity rates, while requiring fewer manual sorters
 

Maximum sorting efficiency and increased scrap aluminum quality achieved through the use of TOMRA Sorting Recycling technology

The quality control of aluminum scrap used as secondary raw material in aluminum production is becoming increasingly stringent. For this reason, it is necessary to have first class material. This excellence is not always guaranteed for those aluminum manufacturers which, as is often the case, are dependent on buying recycled aluminum materials. TOMRA Sorting Recycling's X-Ray Transmission (XRT) technology with its X-TRACT and X-TRACT X6 FINES units is highly recommended for efficiently separating aluminum and aluminum alloys from heavy metals, which delivers consistent quality for the resulting raw materials and products.
