Gamma-Tech LLC has been providing new technology to the recycling industry that reports the composite elemental analysis of a mixture of non-homogeneous recycled metals on a real-time basis to near spectrographic accuracy. This allows recyclers to monitor and control the chemistry of the products they are processing and ultimately to report this analysis of the recycled metals to their consumers. Their focus has been on ferrous metals. They recently installed their first analyzer for recycled aluminum.
