Last month, Dr Giovanni Corbetta, managing director of Ecopneus scpa, an Italian non-profit company focusing on the tracking, collection, processing and final destination of end-of-life tyres, visited Danish recycling equipment manufacturer Eldan Recycling A/S. The purpose of the visit was to find out the latest developments within the tyre recycling sector and to discuss means of optimising the recycling process. Corbetta met with Eldan’s managing director, Dr Toni Reftman, as well as product manager Bjorn Laursen and Eldan’s agent for Italy, Alessandro Silvestri of NME Srl.
Steady economic growth and largescale investment in construction projects has opened up new opportunities for the recycling industry in Poland, according to recycling machinery firm Eldan.
According to the company, inquiries to Eldan Recycling show that an increasing number of companies want a piece of the valuable recycling cake: “The past five years we have noticed a steady increase in requests from Poland” says Toni Reftman managing director at Eldan Recycling. “Within cable recycling we have noticed an increase in both quotes and orders for small and medium capacity systems, as well as for solutions for further recovery of fine copper from insulation. Also within tyre recycling we notice a trend in further improving the end-product. A further cleaned steel fraction with a density of up to 0.7 is very desirable with European steel works.”
