How its Done

  • Cans are fed into the processing plant hopper
  • Eddy current seperator removes aluminium
  • Screen seperates whole cans from aluminium bottle tops and closures
  • Cans are shredded
  • Cans pass over another eddy current to seperate any non aluminium fragments
  • Shredded and clean cans fall into holding bay
  • Shredded cans are baled and stacked into briquettes
  • Baled briquettes are ready to be sent to the furnace for remelt to make new aluminium
