IBA processing

Magsort's solution allows waste-to-energy plants to recover the previously unavailable metals left in their incinerator bottom ash (IBA).

Our ability to process even the finest fractions of IBA, in a completely dry process, unlocks all of the previously unavailable precious metals, resulting in three times as much value without having to deal with wastewater from wet milling.

For every tonne of IBA processed, the metal recovery saves 0.2 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted to the atmosphere.


Up to 150 tonnes per hour throughput.


100 by 200 meters.

Water consumption

0 liters.

Energy consumption

4.5 kWh per tonne of IBA.

Metal value

Up to 50€ per tonne from 0 - 15 mm fraction of IBA.

More than 500,000 tonnes of IBA has been processed in the Nordic countries using our solution.

Our patented ultrahigh-impact crusher enables the processing of even the finest fractions down to below 1 millimeter, which contain most of the precious metals.

The recovered gold alone accounts for 55% of the CO2 savings that result from the reduced need for primary metal production.
