Metso Outotec has launched a recycling service for worn mill liners in Europe. This service aims to recycle used mill liners on an industrial scale and create value.
Worn liners are recyclable, but must be disassembled before reuse or recycling. After over a decade of development work and piloting for the recycling of worn mill liners, Metso Outotec is ready to release a separating line to handle rubber, Poly-Met and Megaliner liners of all sizes . The various liner components can be separated so they can be reused or recycled in an optimal way. For users, the new mill liner recycling service solves the problem of disposing of used mill liners, offering a way to reduce CO2 emissions and improve eco-efficiency as less material is sent to landfills. To do.
“Metso Outotec wants to accelerate the circularity of all wear parts and materials. We use recycled materials in our liners to further close the circularity loop,” says Lars Furtenbach, RTD and Engineering Director for the Mill Linings business line at Metso Outotec.
In the first phase, recycling services using the new sorting line will be available for European mill lining service contracts. The first partnership was recently announced with his Boliden Kevitsa site in Finland. Recycling services will be expanded to new markets in 2023.
