Metal wastes that do not contain large quantities of iron are non-ferrous scrap. These can be base metals such as aluminium, copper, lead, nickel, zinc or alloys such as brass and these metals or mixtures of metals can contain traces of precious metals such as silver, gold, or platinum or even rare metals.
As many of these metals are widely used and as the natural reserves in a number of cases are becoming scarce, it is increasingly important that these non-ferrous metals are recycled. Furthermore the recycling of these non-ferrous metals is saving a large quantity
Müller-Guttenbrunn is specialized in separating and concentrating non-ferrous metals to become raw materials for the downstream smelting and processing of these non-ferrous metals. The Müller-Guttenbrunn Group sources all types of non-ferrous materials as well as complex mixtures of non-ferrous metals. Depending on the quality and composition of the sourced material, the choice will be made how the concentrates are processed.
