AN ALL-FRENCH RECYCLING FACILITY

KEY STAGES

In the electric cable recycling process

RECEPTION / WEIGHING

Lorries are weighed on a weighbridge equipped with a radiation detection system.

QUALITY CONTROL

The cables are unloaded in a designated area where our technicians can carry out an initial quality control (conformity of the batches).

CABLE SORTING

The batches are sorted manually. This meticulous operation separates the copper cables from the non-recyclable waste. The extracted copper cables are grouped by quality ready for recycling.

COPPER CABLE RECYCLING

After being reduced in the pre-shredder, the segments of copper cables, which now measure between 10 and 100 mm, move on to the fast granulating phase. The copper shot produced during this operation is then sieved and classified according to size, ready for sale.

TRACEABILITY

Every batch can be identified and traced throughout the entire recycling process, from receipt of the cables at our recycling centre to shipment of the end products.
