Müller-Guttenbrunn WEEE Recycling

  1. 1. WEEE recyclein the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group Chris Slijkhuis
  2. 2. Global End-of-Life Material Return Growing Millions of tons of durable goods are shredded every year to liberate and recover the ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as plasticsMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  3. 3. End-of-Life E-Waste Recycling „Urban Mining“Durable products to be seen as “ore”De-pollution the first step to remove hazardous contentRecycling of valuable ferrous, non-ferrous metals and plasticsThus re-creating many valuable raw materials These recycled materials can be re-used in new durable goodsMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  4. 4. The Müller-Guttenbrunn Group (MGG) A Central and Eastern European recycling group Specialized in End-of-Life Vehicle and E-Waste recycling Working with the highest recycling and environmental standards Recycling ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as plastics Key data Turn-over 320 Mio € Ferrous: 700.000 MT/a Non-Ferrous 100.000 MT/a Plastics: 50.000 MT/a Papier: 25.000 MT/a Shredders: 4 Shears 8 Trucks: 130 Workforce: 1300 Present in 7 countries CO2 emission savings of over 1 Million Metric TonsMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  5. 5. A closer look at CO2 Emissions CO2 Emissions per Capita in MT/yr 2006 2007 Austria 8,6 8,3 USA 18,8 18,9 Germany 9,9 9,6 China 4,6 4,9 SOURCE: WikipediaMGG saves CO2 emissions of the equivalent of a city of 100 000 peopleMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  6. 6. WEEE materials treated by the MG Group Large Household Appliances Small Household Appliances IT & Telecommunications Equipment Consumer Equipment Electric Tools Display Equipment Metal/Plastic fractions of all categories (incl. fridges) Metal & Plastics Recycling from E-WasteMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  7. 7. Composition of E-Waste Source Widmer et all 2005 Metal & Plastics represent 80 % of volumeMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  8. 8. The E-Waste focus on Recycling DepthDe-Pollution by „Smashing“ (MGG patent)Shredder Ferrous-Metals Steel-millsNon-FE Non-Ferrous-Metals SmeltersSeparationsPlasticrecycling Müller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  9. 9. De-Pollution MGG Patented “Smasher” Taking out • Hazardous components • Big Condensators • Printed Circuit Boards • Batteries • In line with WEEE Directive Recovering valuable components Taking out fractions that disturb further separationsMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  10. 10. Shredding & Ferrous Recycling Shredding Process• “Cut” materials into pieces• Shredders can be small up to 2000 HP Magnetic Ferrous Seperations• Taking out Ferrous Metals The Shredder Residues are also a raw materials• Shredder heavies• Shredders lightsMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  11. 11. Treatment Shredder Residues Non-Ferrous Metal recycling The separation techniques include combinations of • Size (sieving) • Density separations • Induction • Colour • Surface to weight ratio’s • etc. etc. Concentrates of • Non-Ferrous Metals (Copper, Aluminium, Brass, Stainless etc.) • Printed circuit boardsMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  12. 12. Plastic Recycling Pre-processing the plastic rich fraction • Size reduction • Assaying • Taking out non plastic consituents Plastic Separations • Creating PP, ABS and PS • Extrusion and Compounding Final product REACH and RoHS compliantMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  13. 13. Products – ABS, PS, PP as pellets & compoundsMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
  14. 14. An examples of a recent green productEurope - Electrolux“Made with 55% recycled plastic, the Ultra Silencer Green from Electrolux is the most energy‐efficient cleaner on the market. Its new, high‐efficiency motor reduces the Ultra Silencer’s energy consumption by 33% compared to a standard 2,000 watt vacuum cleaner. Because Ultra Silencer Green is made out of recycled materials, it is only available in black, as this color allows to achieve the best looking finish and quality when using recycled materials. To signify Eco friendliness of the Green vacuum cleaner, Electrolux designers added signature elements of green on the graphics and buttons.” SOURCE: Electrolux PressreleaseMüller-Guttenbrunn Group WEEE recycle
