The companies form a powerful one-two punch to safely filter, collect and recycle metal powders.
Contaminated cartridge-type dust collectors may pose serious health and environmental risks. To mitigate these serious risks, systems need to be deployed that eliminate the need to open the dust collection chambers, and importantly, remove the need to handle individual contaminated filters. That’s where Bluesky Global and Globe Metal come in.
The BlueSky system uses completely contained housing where the dust and filters remain fully encapsulated and the filled capture unit (SmartBox) is wholly removed for recycling or safe disposal.
“BlueSky has pioneered a completely new concept in industrial dust collecting. Our approach radically changes how hazardous dust is handled across a wide swath of industries. It protects workers against respiratory illnesses, and shields industries from lawsuits stemming from those afflictions,” says, Michael W. Seitz.
Globe Metal is perfectly positioned to take over from the point of collection. With over 40 years of experience handling tough industrial recycling projects, ISO-certified Globe Metal will offer competitive pricing and seamless transportation of the BlueSky SmartBoxes that contain captured dust and used dust filters.
“An association with BlueSky Global plays right into our strengths,” says Doug Veitch, Chief Operating Officer of Globe Metal. “Our experience with metals of all different forms make us the right choice to handle these materials and find ways to give them new life.”
The two companies will be presenting back-to-back at Powdermet 2019 in Session 23. Michael W. Seitz from BlueSky Global will be presenting a session titled, “Contaminated Cartridge-Type Dust Collectors May Pose Serious Health and Environmental Risks.” Immediately following, Josh Lifshitz and Brendon Chrus will deliver Globe Metal’s session, which is titled, “Metal Powder Recycling—Closing the Loop on Sustainability.” The BlueSky session will take place at 11 am, while the Globe Metal session will take place at 11:25.

About Globe Metal
Located in Montreal and servicing North America and around the world, Globe Metal is a worldwide leader in industrial scrap metal recycling, specializing in tungsten carbide, high-speed steel, molybdenum, cobalt, nickel, tantalum, metal powder and thermal spray.
We need four planets. At least according to the Global Footprint Network. You see, that’s what we would need if the world’s population consumed resources like Kuwait, Australia, the United Emirates, Qatar, and the United States. In addition, a recent report by CNN states that some of the leading causes of climate change are electricity and heat production, transportation, manufacturing and construction. This is why we take Earth Day seriously.
Recycling is key
Recycling industrial metals provides significant environmental benefits. This ranges from energy conservation, natural resource conservation, and reduced carbon footprints. At Globe Metal, we are passionate about what we are accomplishing and feel good about making a difference. In the last decade alone, we have recycled over 289 million pounds of metal. In business for over 40 years, we do our part to play a leadership role in the environmental and economic sustainability of our planet.
At Globe Metal, We Live Every Day Like It Is Earth Day
Today, Earth Day is the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people. The beautiful thing about Globe Metal is that we live every day like it was Earth Day! Globe Metal helps companies all over the world turn their metal waste into secondary resources, which in turn benefits the planet and helps to grow a global circular economy.
Numerous industrial and manufacturing plants produce many products using rare materials. If you have any metal waste by-products, we’ll be glad to help you to recycle your industrial scrap metal waste and improve your bottom line.

Optimism for 2019
After a difficult few years in the metal industry, we’ve experienced an increase in order volumes and pricing this past year. We’re cautiously optimistic about this new paradigm and hope that you see this shift also.
You will hear about many other exciting announcements in the coming months. In the meantime feel free to reach out to our team with material that you are looking to sell. Thanks for your continued support and patronage.
Happy holidays and all the best for the New Year!
A good idea is often destroyed by bad people, and good people can always make a bad idea better.
For the first 25 years running my own business, I was the inveterate micro-manager. I stuck my nose into every area of my business because I felt I could do it better than anybody that was working for me. I also suffered from a syndrome that forced me to keep people on staff. I hated change and the work that went into making change happen and I looked for the cheapest “body” to fill the job. This is a recipe for disaster if you want your business to grow.
Then one day, one of my key staff members at the time just up and quit on me. I was devastated. I went to her house later in the day and asked her why she quit. She told me that yes, maybe I was the best forklift driver or the best salesman or even the best book-keeper. But since I only dabbled in each one at a time for several minutes a day, I wasn’t really any good at any of them. She also told me that I was a disruptive factor to the rest of my staff.
This was a hard lesson to take but it really hit home.
From that day on, I made it a point a point to hire the best and let them do the job that they were hired for. Our company at that time had a total of eight employees and we were doing around $5,000,000 in sales volume. Today we are 28 staff members and are closing in on $50,000,000 in sales!
This is all thanks to a changing of strategy with respect to investing in people and having an amazing, cohesive team. So my message to all of you in a position to do so is “INVEST IN PEOPLE!” You will be surprised at the rewards you reap.
