We've replaced industry standard recovery methods with new technology.
At Continental Aluminum, we use an Eddy Current Separator that's able to separate and recover aluminum from household, post-consumer, industrial and other materials. This method replaces a process that was unable to separate non-metallics prior to processing.

Scrap Inspection Plan
We've adopted a Scrap Inspection Plan that is basically a structured protocol to consistently determine acceptable levels of organic contamination in aluminum scrap. All incoming scrap in inspected, graded and compared to the standards that have been established to ensure compliance. Only scrap that's deemed suitably acceptable is processed, and then it's only processed according to the established protocol.

Operation, Maintenance and Monitoring (OM&M) Plan
This plan is a methodology to ensure that all process, control and monitoring devices are functioning within permit and manufacturer specifications.

Integrated Contingency Plan (ICP)
This plan weaves together several other preventive and contingency procedures enabling total preparedness. This allows us to easily integrate and implement:
· Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC)
· The Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP)
· The Pollution Incident Prevention Plan (PIPP)
· The Hazardous Waste Contingency Plan (HWCP)
