Abstract Scope With the commissioning of the latest BlueMetals plants SMS group has provided to its customers tailor made solutions for the metals recovery from E-scrap. The central component of SMS group’s recycling technology is either the BlueSmelter and/or the Top Blown Rotary Converter (TBRC). Compared, the BlueSmelter can also handle lower grade WEEE with higher organic contents Lately a TBRC based recycling plant was commissioned near Moscow in Russia. This plant is processing about 6,000 tons of printed circuit boards every year to LME/LBMA grade metals, such as copper, nickel, silver, gold, and platinum. For future expansion, the installation of a BlueSmelter or second TBRC is considered to increase the overall plant capacity. In this paper best practice approaches for the metal recovery from E-Scrap, based on running references are described. The experience from the commissioning is also allowing to fine-tune the digital twins used to model the metallurgical process.
