Process possibilities

Alfa Laval evaporation and decanter centrifuge systems can be used to recover and recycle industrial waste in most industrial businesses. But growth is being driven by different operations, including the recycling industry. For example, our systems can be integrated into the battery disposal processes to recover valuable minerals such as lithium, nickel, graphite, cobalt, and manganese. This can also add value to the disposal process of waste incineration ash by extracting metals and phosphor instead of just dumping them in landfills. These are just some examples; the possibilities are endless.
