At the Stena Nordic Recycling Center, we have implemented automated recycling processes at our new production facility. Stena Recycling can now recycle difficult waste materials from cars and other complex products that were previously sent to landfill sites. This means that car recycling can achieve the 95 percent target which the EU has set for European vehicle manufacturers.
Concentrating so many automated processes at the same location, Stena Recycling and Stena Technoworld have created an efficient industrial facility with the capacity to recycle more material from industry, hundreds of cars and other waste from society, every day.
By maximising recycling rates for cars and electronics, amongst other things, Stena Nordic Recycling Society creates great ebfits for industry and society.
The Stena Nordic Recycling Center is our answer to current and future demands for efficient, environmentally sound and sustainable recycling. It is our largest investment ever. Among other things, this means that we, together with Swedish car dismantlers, can achieve the EU's requirement for 95 percent recycling rates for scrapped cars, without having to send materials long distances for further processing. This shows the strength of Swedish recycling. The facility is a resource for value optimization in resource management for customers in all the Nordic countries.
The new facility, which will be one of the most modern in Europe, has been developed in collaboration with customers and partners.
The new automated recycling processes are based on proven technology combined with new innovations. Initially, a range of industrial shredders and mills do the hard work, fragmenting cars, metal scrap and decontaminated electronics at incredibly high speed. Thereafter, sophisticated automated processes perform accurate sorting using magnets, fans, optics, fluids and vibration in order to separate the different materials from each other.
At the Stena Nordic Recycling Center, industrial waste, cars and electronics from throughout society is processed and refined. By the time it has passed through the entire recycling process, we have around 30 different grades of material. With this technology, raw materials can be delivered directly to smelters, foundries and other manufacturers, in Sweden and around the world, where the material can live on in new products.
The Stena Nordic Recycling Center - a milestone in modern, sustainable recycling on an industrial scale.
