European Metal Recycling / What’s That?
There are a number of companies that have taken the lead in manufacturing in environmentally friendly ways. They understand the importance of recycling, and they also understand that it takes more than understanding to create positive change.
Environmental heath is recovered by not only individuals taking action, but by companies stepping up and employing standards that benefit the world we live in.
One such company is European Metal Recycling (emr). Formed in 1994 in Manchester, this green company has over 2,500 employees with 100 locations across the world including Thailand, the United States, Germany and Greenland.
emr / Mission Statement
Taken from their website, emr, European Metal Recycling‘s mission statement is…
“To maintain our position at the forefront of the industry by delivering the right products in the right volumes on time, and continually enhancing our portfolio of environmentally progressive services.”
emr / Re-Using Metal
The material that emr mainly concerns itself with is metal. Whether it is automobiles or appliances, emr finds the most effective means to create something efficient and environmentally friendly from something that is inefficient and toxic.
For instance, a major division of European Metal Recycling is dedicated to the breaking down of vehicles. Advances are being made everyday in manufacturing alternative energy vehicles. But what can be done with the cars that are beyond hope? Emr takes the older vehicles off your hands and gives a complete over-haul so that they are transformed into something Mother Earth would be proud of.
According to one of the leaders of emr, “Emr inspects all vehicles on receipt and makes identity checks before they are de-registered. The battery, wheels and any hazardous parts are removed and purpose built de-pollution rigs enable all operating fluids to be extracted.
Over a third of all authorised treatment facilities in mainland Britain are suppliers to European Metal Recycling many of whom have signed up to our network. Together we handle around one million vehicles a year.”
