Recycling

EKAMOR™ believes that we should utilize cutting edge technology whenever possible. Our first emphasis in creating a zero-waste economy is to remove the high value material from the waste stream that can be recycled into new products. EKAMOR has created proprietary technology that allows for a highly efficient system to operate at a low cost to maximize the removal of recycle materials. A major portion of our revenues are received from our sales of this reclaimed material.

Zero-Waste Economy

Material Recovery

Recycled material is classified as a commodity, therefore prices fluctuate rapidly. Our proprietary technology allows us to maximize these markets at any given time. Within minutes our MOVE system recognizes any programming changes that have been made and the system has the ability to switch material types completely or simply the percentage of the material that we want to recover. The following are examples of recycled material that we are currently targeting.

Metals

High volume metal separation is achieved as metals pass by. Using a self-cleaning system, metal attracted is automatically and continuously removed from the magnet face by a belt that travels around the face of the magnet. The separated metals then travel to our recycle materials area where they are baled and staged for shipping.

Non-Ferrous Metals

We use an eddy current separator at this point to remove the non-ferrous metals, such as aluminum. Magnets inside a rotor spin rapidly forming eddy currents in the aluminum, which in turn creates a magnetic field around the aluminum. The polarity of the magnetic field is the same as the rotating head causing the aluminum to be repelled away from the magnet.

PET Plastic

There are seven grades of plastic fraction - PET, or PETE, is considered #1 plastics. Derived from polymer resins, the best examples of PET are water and soda bottles. PET is also present in carpet, textiles and other food packaging products. PET along with HDPE make up 96% of all plastic bottles and containers in the U.S.

HDPE Plastic

HDPE plastic, or High-Density Polyethylene is made from petroleum and can contain color pigment. Milk jugs, juice bottles and grocery bags are examples of HDPE. KOR NRG uses optical sorters that are optimized by our proprietary MOVE automation system to remove these materials. Currently HDPE is the most valuable recycled product that we recover.
