A specialist metals recycling company
Founded in 2009, Scanmetals has developed a dry process to recover non-ferrous metals from incinerator bottom ash generated by Energy-from-Waste facilities.
Scanmetals operates in Scandinavia, Germany and United Kingdom where, instead of going to landfill, residual household and municipal waste is treated in Energy-from-Waste facilities, also known as incinerators.
The dry process utilized by Scanmetals to clean and recover mixed non-ferrous metals from incinerator bottom ash has been developed over many years and incorporates the use of the latest mechanical and sensor sorting technology available. The recovered non-ferrous metals are cleaned, separated into different fractions and sold to the metallurgical industry globally.
Scanmetals was named winner of the Innovation category in 2018 and 2020.
