After shredding, everything that is not iron is processed further. Rubbers and foams undergo thermal valorisation, while plastics get a second life at Galloo Plastics. The non-ferrous metals are also separated further.
By applying innovative techniques to specific fractions, we are able to constantly upgrade the waste streams. For example, we are now able to separate non-ferrous metals based on density, colour, shape, electrical conductivity and composition.
The purity of the end product is, therefore, Galloo’s greatest asset. The separated fractions are used immediately for companies from the non-ferrous and plastic industries. For example, Galloo gives tonnes of materials a new lease of life every year and the loop of the circular economic model gradually closes.
