Description of Services:All waste materials received are recycled for their metals contents, mainly copper, tin, and nickel. Recycling processes are considered proprietary, and consists of hydro- and pyro-metallurgical steps. Generally sludges arrive with 30% solids content, and must be dried to reduce water content. Waste materials are received, and sludges, and solids are dumped into a receiving area on the floor of the containment building, where a skip loader may first place them into a ribbon mixer, or directly into a spin flash dryer. Solids are increased to 65%-75%. Separated liquids, and other incoming liquids are treated in the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) in reactors, and precipitation tanks, with resultant filter cake (from filter press) placed back into the thermal process. Wastewater is pH adjusted, and tested for CWT limits, local POTW limits, and delisting criteria before being trucked offsite via WRC tank trucks to the POTW under permit.

The metal concentrate (product) is likewise tested to ensure delisting criteria are met, and for smelters' parameters.
