Resource Recovery

Thanks to efficient by-products’ processing and conditioning, we transform and optimize its recycling capabilities

An invaluable Harsco Environmental service, resource recovery makes a significant environmental impact.

Recovering valuable metal, we transform the non-metallic by-product into eco-products that create new and additional revenue streams for you. By way of various smelting processes, we then return the recovered metal in a form suitable for recycling.

The non-metallic by-products are processed and conditioned to optimize their suitability for secondary use, and by recycling the recovered metal, we reduce carbon emissions as a result of steel production. We also significantly lessen the carbon footprint on the sites from which we work.

More than that, though; our services provide environmental benefits by reducing the unnecessary quarrying of raw materials and reducing – or eliminating – the disposal of by-products into landfill.
