Goudsmit recently built two magnets to be used for the production of iron-free carbon black by a large European manufacturer. These self-cleaning, rotating magnets remove iron particles as small as 30 microns from the very dry, poorly flowing conductive carbon black used for lithium-ion batteries.It is essential that this product is 100% metal-free, because metal particles would change the conductivity. In this line, the rotating magnets process at a relatively low capacity of 1500 kg per hour. If necessary, however, such magnets can process at capacities of up to 40 m3 per hour.
According to a December article from Canadian Press, the Saskatchewan government says it will spend up to $3.3 million to clean up more than 6,600 tonnes of scrap tires at a defunct recycling plant.

Sierra Recycling and Demolition has built success at the scrapyard based on reliable equipment, advanced technology and solid culture
Shortly after World War II, Ben Sacco came to California and started Sierra Bag Company, servicing the agriculture industry. In the late fifties, Sierra Iron & Metal was born when he dedicated a portion of his operation to scrap metal collection. He then added a baler to process scrap, which he found while visiting his homeland of Italy. Sacco eventually became the official North and South American distributor for the baler manufacturer, starting Sierra International Machinery, while at the same time continuing to operate his scrapyard, Sierra Iron & Metal. About 10 years ago, the business was passed on to Ben Sacco's two sons, John and Philip Sr., both of whom have been lifelong employees and contributors to the business. The scrap recycling part of the Sacco family business today operates as Sierra Recycling and Demolition Inc., run by Phil Sacco, while Sierra International Machinery, the recycling equipment manufacturer and distributor, is run by John Sacco - both out of Bakersfield, California.
Black Bear raises 11 million Euros towards solving the global waste tire problem while slashing CO2
