Laval’s recycling technology is the need of the hour

Total Metal Recovery, Inc. has unveiled its newest metal recovery and recycling plant situated in the central Laval industrial park in Quebec, Canada. The Laval plant features cutting-edge technology that reduces, reuses and recycles industrial scrap metal. Considered to be the most advanced of its kind, the plant is expected to set a benchmark for industry innovations.

The facilities have been developed on a 777,000 square-foot lot. The plant houses some of the world’s most dynamic recycling equipment. The company will create 70 new job opportunities in the plant site.

Nearly 50,000 tonnes of scrap metal per month can be processed for recycle and reuse by the newly-developed metal sorting centre. The scrap includes auto bodies, electrical appliances and an assortment of industrial scrap metal. The technology is so efficient that the sorting equipment separates even minute metal particles as ferrous and non-ferrous.

Jean-Guy Hamelin, president and CEO of Total Metal Recovery, Inc. acknowledged the Government of Quebec for its support. “I would like to thank the Government of Quebec which with its financial assistance of $621,604, funded nearly 25% of the acquisition of two cranes operating on electricity rather than on diesel, which is the industry norm. The acquisition of these two cranes will enable us to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 500 tonnes annually,” he said.
