The power of sustainable innovation: McGregor's dry recycling storage solution for Scanmetals
Sustainability meets profit
For the recycling industry, residual waste is the enemy of profit. Each piece of valuable material in landfill represents an environmental setback and a missed opportunity.
At the intersection of environmental responsibility and financial success, you will find Scanmetals—a trailblazer in the recycling industry. They developed an innovative system to extract and sell the valuable metals hidden in waste-to-energy incinerator ash. By resourcefully extracting, storing, and selling these materials, Scanmetals maximises profits while reducing waste.
The Hidden Enemy: Moisture and the Metal Recycling Business
Moisture poses a significant threat to businesses like Scanmetals, particularly during the storage process, as it leads to metal oxidation. It is crucial to store metals in a dry space to minimise waste and maximise customer value. Scanmetals realised that relying on plastic bags as a solution was inconvenient, expensive, and unsustainable. Recognising the need for a reliable and waterproof structure, they made the necessary investment to safeguard their valuable metals and ensure long-term profitability.
