USA – In the USA, Commercial Metals Co. (CMC) of Irving, Texas, has unveiled plans for a shredder at its 27-acre facility in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The company has purchased a 4000 HP Metso Recycling-Texas Shredder plant featuring Metso’s TSH technology. With construction start-up scheduled for the end of April, commissioning of the shredder is expected in late 2011.
’The decision to install a shredder at our Tulsa scrap processing yard was based on already-captured feedstock from our existing recycling facilities located in Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas,’ says Joe Alvarado, CMC’s President and Chief Operating Officer. ‘The installation of this shredder strengthens CMC’s presence in the Midwest and our ability to meet the recycling needs of Tulsa and surrounding communities.’
CMC Recycling bills itself as one of the largest processors of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap in the USA; the company has a particularly strong presence in the south of the country. CMC and its subsidiaries manufacture, recycle and market steel and metal products, related materials and services through a variety of facilities that include: electric arc furnace steel mills; steel fabrication and processing plants; construction-related product warehouses; a copper tube mill; scrap metal recycling facilities; and marketing and distribution offices in the USA and in several international markets.
