 1. Transport

The delivery of tinplate is 65% per truck and 35% per ship. The incoming tinplate scrap is unloaded at the collection point, after which they are mixed with a crane to form a homogeneous fraction.

 2. Electrolysis

The tinplate fraction is then pressed into tinplate bales. The weight of the timplate bales can vary between 175 and 250 kg (depending on customer requirements).

 3. Tin press

The cathode plates are scraped at the tin press. The tin is collected in a container and subsequently then pressed into discs.

 4. The result

Two finished products are produced: steel packages and tin discs. De tinschijven vinden hun weg naar diverse afnemers in Europa. Zij raffineren het tin tot een zuiverheid van 99,99%.
