Using the new physical and separation process, Brough has already looked at producing saleable products for the powder metallurgy industry, which have been mainly granular. ‘Initially there was a lot of trial and error,’ explains Brough, looking back to the start of the project. ‘For every one product that we were able to successfully market, there were probably a hundred applications that we failed on.’ However, The process could also be applied to recycling other nonferrous metals, including zinc and copper.
