Circular material flows

The idea of a circular material flow (or recycling of material) arose in connection with Skrotfrag AB being founded in 1972. The company started by collecting scrapped cars and pressing them to be able to send to a fragmentation plant where the iron in the cars became new raw material. 45 years later, the view in society has changed and Skrotfrag AB is at the forefront of recycling iron (ferrous) and other metals (non ferrous) into renewable raw materials that are sent to various recipients such as smelters in Europe and Asia.

The material (scrap and vehicles) that comes to one of Skrotfrag AB's 23 branches in southern and central Sweden is collected from municipalities, companies and private individuals. The material is sorted, possibly cut into smaller pieces and if it is a vehicle, they are decontaminated before everything is sent on to one of Skrotfrag's two production facilities.
