Turbine - Aerospace Metal Recycling

Today, the aerospace industry is continually moving towards greener manufacturing. This current economic take-use-dispose model is giving way to a circular economy model. Products and resources are kept as long as possible, reused or recycled, creating closed loops of material use. For example, Pratt & Whitney has set goals by 2025, to have zero waste in all its factories, with 100% of waste recycled. Some of these players in this sector are requiring these standards to be followed throughout their production supply chain. As industries face mounting environmental and sustainability challenges, solutions will be found in crossovers in technology and collaboration.

The conventional methods for recycling aerospace metal scraps are generally processed in one sizeable communal heap. This outdated method of recycling results in metals being undervalued.  At Globe Metal, we visit your site and provide you with an assessment and evaluation of your metal scrap. Our success rate is high when it comes to finding different metal waste streams. Aerospace scrap metals contain a variety of metals, such as silver cadmium in switch and relays, mercury and chromium in gauges, platinum and palladium in thermocouples, fuel nozzles, turbine blade and vanes, gas lines, gas pumps, and heat exchangers. These kinds of metals are durable, corrosion-resistant, and act as thermal barriers in extreme temperatures. Precious metals, such as gold are used in printed circuit boards for radio and communication devices, navigation systems, and dozens of other computer application systems. Not every metal recycler has the knowledge that we do in recovering precious metals from aerospace metal scrap.

With our practical experience and technology, we identify and recycle precious metals, like platinum, palladium and gold. We at Globe Metal make sure that when recycling metal with us, you will always receive the best market value. No matter what waste streams you are working with, we handle all types of mixed metal scraps effectively. If you want to get the most value out of your aerospace metal scrap, then choosing the right recycling partner with in-depth knowledge and the proper methodologies is essential. Your metals have value and we guarantee that you will receive maximum value when recycling with Globe Metal.
