US waste management firm, Duncan Recycling & Refining (DR2), has entered into a deal with UK based manufacturer of plasma arc recycling equipment for the recovery of precious metals, Tetronics International, which will provide DR2 with its technology to enable the company to recover precious metals from catalytic convertors found in automotive vehicles.
Tetronics International’s arc systems make it possible to recover valuable resources from materials, such as electronics, spent catalysts, and mining ores. The company will be developing and delivering a plasma refining arc for the DR2 plant, which is located in Duncan, Oklahoma.
The plant will utilize plasma to remove and refine the precious platinum group metals and ceramics that are found in catalytic convertors.
