Bunting joins BMRA
Bunting has joined the British Metals Recycling Association (BMRA).
The BMRA trade association represents the £7 billion UK metal recycling sector, which in turn represents over 250 organisations. BMRA members produce environmentally-friendly raw materials to metal manufacturers worldwide.
“We are proud of our strong association with UK metals recycling industry, which was the primary reason for joining the BMRA,” explained Bunting’s European managing director, Simon Ayling.
Bunting’s new membership reflects the importance of its Magnetic Separator and Eddy Current Separator technology for the separation and recovery of valuable metals.
Bunting has been supplying metal separation equipment to the metals recycling industry for many years now. Bunting first introduced their Eddy Current Separator in the early 1990s, and the separation technology of non-ferrous metals has since evolved, with three different models appearing which enable enhanced metal recovery of aluminium, copper and other non-ferrous metals.
The most recent development is Bunting’s ultra-high strength Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator, which separates fragmented stainless steel from non-magnetic metal mixes.
“The industry focus is both on maximising recovery and purity,” said Simon.
“Waste materials destined for landfill need to be as metal-free as is practically possible. However, metals manufacturers are also keen to reduce waste and are demanding higher purity recycled metal feed. Our role is to provide the best separation technology.”
Bunting joins the BMRA just two months after announcing its membership of the Polymer Machinery Manufacturers and Distributors Association.
“Membership of key industry associations enables us to meet and talk with key industry professionals on a regular basis,” said Simon.
“This allows us to better understand issues in the industry, which will drive our product development.”
