Meet us at the Aluminium 2018 trade fair

Adding value for refiners and remelters

31 August 2018

TOMRA Sorting Recycling will showcase its sensor-based sorting technologies at Aluminium 2018, the world trade fair and conference, at Messe Düsseldorf, Germany, from 9th to 11th October. TOMRA’s exhibition stand – number 11|54 in Hall 11 - will spotlight the company’s X-TRACT machine, which separates valuable materials from metal waste, and its state-of-the-art LIBS technology, which accurately sorts and separates different aluminium wrought alloys. The company’s technical experts will be available during all three days of the event to answer visitors’ questions.  

TOMRA’s participation at Aluminium 2018 highlights how the company provides technical solutions to two of the industry’s biggest challenges: with global production of aluminium pushed to an all-time high because of the increasing need for light metals for energy transition and transportation, recycling can help meet demand for the material; and with intensifying pressures for sustainability, recycling improves resource conservation.

Frank van de Winkel, TOMRA Sorting Business Development Manager Metals, said: “High levels of aluminium production plus the high accuracy of modern alloy-sorting techniques make it more and more worthwhile to unlock the value from secondary materials that would otherwise be lost. What’s more, re-using scrap metal is an environmentally-friendly practice which demonstrates the industry’s commitment to sustainability. For these reasons we’re looking forward to discussing our technologies at Aluminium 2018 with refiners and remelters.”
