Title: High-Quality Separation and Recycling of Metal Alloys from Old Engines

The Project’s main objective is to demonstrate the technical and economical feasibility of a new high-capacity process for separating metal alloys with degrees of purity of over 99%. The system will use a combination of magnetic separation techniques, Foucault currents, granulometry and flotation to separate iron, aluminum and heavy metals from ELV engines for reuse in new vehicle motors. The project prototype is expected to process 650 tons/week of used engines. The project will also address the logistics network between the firms who process the old engines and the car manufactures who use the recycled materials.
