Shredder Residues are the fractions that are generated from shredding a variety of materials (ELV, WEEE and other metallic shredder feed-stocks) after the separation of the ferrous metals. These shredder residues can be the shredder heavies or the fines.
The Müller-Guttenbrunn company MGG Metran is specialized in treating many kinds of shredder residues to separate and concentrate the various non-ferrous metals, the plastics, the printed circuit boards.
The treatment of shredder residues requires a combination of a large number of physical separation techniques. Specific know-how and experience is required to choose these processes and the order in which these are applied. Müller-Guttenbrunn is processing many types of shredder residues from many companies both from within the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group and from a large number of sources throughout Europe.
