Eldan Recycling, a Denmark-based recycling equipment firm, has announced that the Chinese recycling company Tianjin Xinneng Renewable Resources Co. Ltd., has purchased a three-ton cable recycling line for its recycling facility in Tianjin, China.

When operational the wire chopper will be able to process up to three tons of scrap cable per hour into copper and aluminum granulate and plastic scrap.

Eldan says that when processing scrap cables into copper granulates, the purity is very important and Eldan’s equipment ensures up to 99.5 percent metal purity. The Eldan equipment will be used to support Tianjin Xinneng Renewable Resources Co Ltd’s Spanish and Italian copper smelting equipment.

“We are very proud that Mr. Zhang, president of the company; and Mr. Wang, vice president, found time to visit our factory in Denmark. It is very important to us that everything works smoothly, when the processing equipment arrives at its destination.

“Therefore, in deals like this, we always send one of our project managers to the customer site to clarify all details concerning the installation etc. before production of the equipment is actually started-up. This is done to ensure a successful installation and commissioning on site”, says Henning Nørgaard, Eldan’s territory manager.

The Chinese company has been in business for two generation and operates on a 300,000 square-meter facility where it processes and dismantles a range of scrap such as scrap cable, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), end of life vehicles and plastics.

“We were happy to visit the Eldan factory to see how the Danish people develop, design and produce all the equipment in their facilities in Faaborg, Denmark. All machines were tested to our full satisfaction during our stay and we now look forward to receiving them in our factory in Tianjin,” says Zhang.

“Together with our agent Ferrostaal (Beijing) we have already sold more recycling lines into China,” says Toni Reftman, Eldan's managing director. “Although China is a heavy competitor on the world market for machinery, it seems that the Chinese managers of recycling companies appreciate that our equipment is designed for automated processing with surveillance only.”
