SUSTAINABLE METAL RECYCLING

 

JC ECOMET – opening new horizons to CIRCULAR ECONOMY

JC ECOMET has developed a disruptive concept to use efficient plasma furnaces to produce high-quality metals and alloys on environmentally friendly and from today’s raw materials of civilization. In the spirit of the circular economy, the company uses used metals for their recovery and refinement.

Advanced Melting Technology

The technological core of JC ECOMET are state-of-the-art dc plasma arc furnaces – consuming regularly over 50% less energy compared to traditional furnaces.

4000 °C

JC Ecomet plasma recycling can cope with any kind of waste, including the most hazardous, high-grade toxic waste, electronic components.

Resources

Scrap metal or mine tailings are not only great resources of many raw materials, but their recycling is ecologically friendly. ECOMET uses this continuous resource to fight global warming, offering at the same moment an economically interesting product to the industry.

CO2 Impact

Avoiding earth gas heating, oxygen enrichment and coke addition by using electricity only and melting heat coming from certain components, ECOMET ultra-high temperature DC plasma furnaces produce up to 95% less CO2 compared to conventional blast furnace systems.

Sparing Nature

 

Recycling of one ton of steel avoids the use of 1,133 kg of iron ore, 635 kg of coal and 55kg of limestone. Additionally, required energy is about 56% less (for aluminium even 95% and 90 % for copper 90%).

Further more, using scrap metal instead of virgin ore reduces mining waste up to 97% and uses 40% less water (American National Institute of Health).

Below some stats about the problems of traditional mining:

Kilograms of ore are processed to extract just 5 grams of gold

Kilograms of coal are required to process 1 ton of iron

Billion tons of material are stripped off the earth every year

Million tons of mining waste are processed every year
