SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): The North American subdivision of Germany-headquartered Wieland Group announced further details on capabilities of the new copper recycling plant in Shelbyville, Kentucky. The company had announced investment of nearly $100 million in the plant during late-May this year.

According to Matt Bedingfield, Wieland North America’s president of recycling, it is more than another business investment for the company. It signals long-term commitment to its customers, current and future employees as well as the planet, by committing to producing sustainable products using innovative, green and energy-efficient technologies.

The facility, built within 81-acre site, will produce nearly 225 million pounds of copper per annum, with possibilities of future expansion. In addition to shredding, sorting and other processes, the plant will also have advanced fire-refining capabilities to upgrade scrap for use in foundry operations. The superior-quality ingots produced at the plant will be mainly used by Wieland, but also be sold to external parties.

The Kentucky plant will employ latest technology to recycle a broad range of alloys and metals, it noted.
