Being a manufacturer is an incomparable advantage when one is a stakeholder in the recycling industry. We have the best tools available on the market for recycling 3000 metric tons of cables each month.
Our specific processing method provides us with the optimal reuse of all the materials in the cables.
The advantage of recycling is that it allows economies to be made, not only of non-renewable natural resources (copper ore, bauxite), but also of the energy required for the extraction and the transformation of the ores in order to obtain the metal.
The Life-cycle Analysis (LCA) performed on the MTB Aluminium recycling line at Trept, has demonstrated that our equipment allows the environmental footprint to be reduced by 90% compared to the mining industry and by 50% compared to secondary aluminium. This approach will be adopted for all of MTB's activities.
"Our equipment knows no limits! Neither do we!"
Copper line - Ligne cuivre
The steps of the process are 100% mechanical and allow different fractions of the cable components to be separated progressively, in the end, to obtain the metal with 99.99% purity.
To best separate the materials to recycle and to optimise the quality of the finished product, MTB has grafted numerous systems onto the process: optical sorting and eddy current separation completes the usual range.
Our long experience and our patented technology have given us a recognized lead, unique work tools sought throughout the industrial world and unequalled competitiveness.
