The event will be held at the company’s Trafford Park site and will allow lecturers access to behind the scenes activity in award-winning advanced waste management. Axion won the Technology Trailblazer Materials Recovery category of the Resource Revolution Awards 2013 for its pioneering work in recycling materials from end-of-life vehicles for re-use in new and closed-loop applications, such as automotive components. Designed, built and now operated by Axion’s in-house engineering team, the multi-million pound Shredder Waste Advanced Processing Plant at Trafford Park, Manchester is at the forefront of this type of recycling.
Opened in 2011, the facility is one of the most advanced of its type in Europe for separating useful materials from ASR (Auto Shredder Residue) and is already capable of delivering over 95% recycling and recovery of materials from end-of-life vehicles (ELVs), ahead of the 2015 EU ELV recycling and recovery target.
At the Masterclass, the science and engineering of waste from automotives and the issues of skills will also be covered.
Axion Recycling was formed in 2002 to find innovative ways of recovering resources from waste. As the company expanded it eventually split into two divisions: Axion Consulting and Axion Polymers.
The Axion Consulting division was created in response to increased demand from a wide range of clients within the recycling and process industries for practical development of new processing and collection methods. In partnership with S Norton & Co Ltd, the Axion Polymers division was formed to process waste materials. Axion Polymers has two state-of-the-art processing plants located in Salford and Manchester and processes rigid waste plastics and ELV shredder residue.
