Engineering

The engineering sector produces a huge quantity of waste, with much of it unable to go to landfill in its current state. In addition, much of this waste can be re-used and recycled; providing a far more sustainable option. Many items classed as waste, such as filter cake, can have precious metals extracted from them, offering potential rebates for engineering customers and off-setting the costs of waste management.

Just some of the engineering waste items that can be dealt with by Betts Envirometal include:

  • X Rays from non-destructive testing
  • Secure storage and destruction
  • Brazing alloys
  • Filter cake
  • Industrial effluent
  • Oils and rags
  • Incinerator ashes
  • Silver and precious metal recovery
  • Printed circuit board recovery from machinery
  • WEEE 
  • Aerosols
  • Light tubes
  • Wooden packaging such as pallets
