Resource Recovery

Processing and conditioning of by-product to transform and optimize its recycling capability

This is an invaluable component of our service offerings, and one that makes a positive environmental impact. We recover valuable metal from the by-products and transform the non-metallic by-product into eco-products that create new and additional revenue streams for our customers.

The recovered metal is returned in a form suitable for recycling through various smelting processes. The non-metallic by-products are processed and conditioned to optimize their suitability for secondary use. By recycling the recovered metal, we reduce carbon emissions from the steel production and significantly reduce the carbon footprint on the sites where we work.  Our services provide additional environmental benefits by reducing the unnecessary quarrying of raw materials and reducing – or completely eliminating – the disposal of by-products into landfill.
