URT’s first-of-its-kind e-scrap facility for Middle East

Germany – UNTHA Recycling Technology (URT) of Germany is supplying a plant for the handling of used computers to All Trade in Tel Aviv, Israel. URT’€™s managing partner Peter Hessler confirmed to Recycling International during the IFAT trade show held recently in Munich that the plant will be delivered in June and that start-up is scheduled for September.

The facility, claimed to be ′the first of its kind′ for the region, has the capacity to process 3 tonnes of e-scrap per hour. The treatment line is equipped with a range of shredding and separation technologies; in addition to density and magnetic separation, inductively and camera-assisted sorting technologies will be applied.

The major proportion of the treated material will be generated by All Trade itself via its own IT business, while end-of-life appliances from other collection sources will also be handled at the facility. According to URT, All Trade will become ′an important partner′ for the disposal of end-of-life electronics, which is now required under Israeli law.
