Metso Minerals will supply a complete metal recycling plant to European Metal Recycling (EMR) for its recycling facility in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in the USA. The delivery will be completed during the first quarter of 2009. The value of the order is approximately EUR 8 million and it was included in Metso's fourth quarter order backlog of 2007.

The order comprises a metal shredder including a ferrous downstream, a non-ferrous plant system, as well as a stand-alone scrap shear. The shredder plant will be equipped with a customized emission filtration system to meet the local emission standards. The shredder will be completely housed in an enclosed building.

The new solution will be installed to an old metal recycling site. Once the delivery has been completed, the facility will have the capacity to handle 200 tonnes of scrap metal per hour to produce shredder scrap.

EMR is one of the largest metal recycling companies in the world. This is the first shredder order placed by EMR in respect of its USA facilities.

Metso is a global engineering and technology corporation with 2006 net sales of approximately EUR 5 billion. Its more than 26,000 employees in more than 50 countries serve customers in the pulp and paper industry, rock and minerals processing, the energy industry and selected other industries.
