Since 2006, the EU wide ELV Directive (2000/53/EC) mandates a recycling ratio of 85% for disused vehicles. By 2015, this requirement will rise to 95%.
The growing demand for high-value, secondary raw materials renders targeted recycling increasingly attractive. Modern TOMRA Sorting technology generates clean non-ferrous metal fractions in customer shredder operations and results in valuable scrap metal gains.

Recovery of NF metals from shredded automobiles
The aim of scrap sorting in a shredder process is to generate clean, metal fractions from a very complex – and varied - input stream. These input streams contain ferrous metals like unalloyed steel, non-ferrous metals like aluminum, copper and brass, as well as plastics, glass and compound materials. Through a pre-sales consulting service, TOMRA Sorting engineers support ELV shredder operators by co-designing a customer-specific sorting solution that leads to high-quality yields while keeping the process and disposal costs as low as possible.
The COMBISENSE is a specialized high end machine to separate high purity metal fractions from even the most difficult fractions in terms of composition, grain size and mix from mixed waste and metal streams.
Now in its fourth generation, the FINDER specializes in effectively separating high purity metal fractions from even the most difficult fractions in terms of composition, grain size and mix from mixed waste and metal streams.
