Reducing Emissions from Scrap Metal Processing

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 2
Project Description NJ DEP is conducting a separation process for mercury-containing components of scrap used by secondary iron and steel manufacturing for air emission reductions. The separation process is also expected to reduce cadmium and lead containing components as well as PCB-containing components. A second component of this project is testing stack emissions in aluminum smelting operations to determine if this industry has similar problems with these PBT pollutants. A report on the auto shredders and dismantler source separation process will be prepared describing the waste composition, separation guidance, and recommendations. For the aluminum smelting industry, a stack test report will compare aluminum smelting to other source categories in the New Jersey mercury inventory and make recommendations based on the data.
