At the recycling facility of RMB, near Lago di Garda in Italy, thousands of tonnes of incinerator bottom ash (IBA) and non-ferrous metals from car shredding operations are being recycled every month.
In 2016, RMB installed a rental Redwave unit for testing purposes and, soon after, it bought the XRF/C. Now, the company has invested in five more XRF/C machines for a new line so it can sort all its metal fractions from IBA.
With Redwave X-ray fluorescence technology, it is possible to identify and sort all kinds of metals even when coming from incineration, where the surface is not representative of the material itself. It is possible to sort metals by type, and even fractions of precious metals can be identified and separated.
