PGM of Texas: The Catalytic Converter Recycling Specialist

Top 10 Metal Recycling Companies - 2022

Nowadays, the metal recycling business is at the forefront of innovation, leveraging new technology processes more efficiently, accurately, and quickly. The growing need for urbanization and industrialization in developing countries is substantially driving the expansion of the metal recycling market.

Notably, one of the leading-edge technologies that create immense value for metal recyclers is x-ray fluorescence (XRF). XRF technology positively identifies numerous alloy grades and rapidly analyzes their chemical composition at material transfer points. It helps in guaranteeing the quality of the product as well. By integrating other technologies, XRF improves the sorting processes by identifying the chemical composition of most scrap materials in a few seconds.

Likewise, no evolution of metal recycling in recent years would be complete without mentioning artificial intelligence (AI). Today, recycling centers around highly sophisticated robots powered by AI that operate alongside humans, sorting metals using optical sorting equipment. These robots’ capabilities enable recycling operations to strategically reallocate human resources while the AI bots handle the heavy lifting.

At this juncture, there is a variety of metal recycling companies that are entering the market to cater to the different needs in the metals and mining domain. To help enterprises choose the metal recycling company that best fits their requirements, Metals and Mining Review has compiled a list of the top 10 metal recycling companies.
