The Müller-Guttenbrunn Group celebrates that Müller-Guttenbrunn’s Metall Recycling was founded back in 1954, 60 years ago.
Metran, the non-ferrous recycling company of the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group, was founded in 1984, 30 years ago. MBA Polymers, the plastics recycling company celebrates its foundation in 2004, 10 years ago.
These 3 companies of the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group intensively work together in the recycling of particularly electronic waste (WEEE) and for this reason the company will celebrate 100 years of recycling teamwork this year.
These 3 Müller-Guttenbrunn Group companies jointly recycle close to 80 000 metric tons of Waste of Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in a unique set of recycling steps. The WEEE is de-polluted by a Smasher, which was invented by the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group. De-Polluted WEEE is shredded by the specialized E-Waste shredder EVA on the Amstetten site, where the ferrous metals are recovered. The shredder residues, both heavies and fines, are further treated by Metran.
Metran, based in Kematen/Ybbs, separates and concentrates the shredder residues into non-ferrous concentrates, which are delivered to various smelting facilities for the end-processing of these non-ferrous metals. Metran uses state-of-the-art technologies for these separation steps and the company is considered as one of the specialists in Europe. The recovered plastics fractions are pre-processed before they are delivered to MBA Polymers, next door to Metran.
MBA Polymers is specialized in the separation of the plastics fraction into end-of-waste plastic pellets. The high tech separation process includes many separation steps to obtain a pure granulate of single polymers, such as ABS, HIPS, PP. Further polymer types are planned to be added before the end of this year. The purified polymers are compounded into pellets that are used to produce amongst others new electronic products.
