A mixture of metals, plastics, rubbers, ceramics, glass and other materials, is a complex and difficult to recycle waste stream. Our recycling process focuses on the separation of shredder fractions which are generated by car shredders, fridge recycling lines and other recycling lines. These fractions contain non-ferrous materials combined with organic and mineral waste materials. Our process is designed to separate and recover multiple pure non-ferrous fractions which can be used as raw-materials for next-generation products.

Increasing the Recovery of Valuable Materials
Some electronic products and shredded fractions need a special approach when these are recycled or upgraded into raw materials fractions. Sims Lifecycle Services develops special processing methods to gain maximum resource recovery rates out of 2nd grade processed fraction materials and also handles the safe separation of harmful materials.
We have recycling processing capabilities which can recover metals from incinerated municipal waste, which can further upgrade plastics fractions. These processes also allow us to remove mercury from LCD displays mechanically during the resource recovery process.
