Introducing Zorba: A Unique Scrap Metal Blend

Zorba is a special blend of scrap metals, originating from the process of shredding vehicles in scrap yards. When a car is shredded, the first step involves separating metals from non-metals like plastics, textiles, rubber, and foam. These non-metal materials are then processed further downstream for recycling. After the initial separation, the metals undergo another sorting process. This is where non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper, brass, and stainless steel are distinguished from ferrous metals like steel and iron.

What Exactly is Zorba?

Essentially, Zorba is a mix of non-ferrous scrap metals, primarily copper and aluminum, extracted from the remains of a shredded automobile. While some scrap yards buy Zorba as a mixed material, its market availability and pricing can vary. Typically, individual scrap sellers and casual customers won’t have access to Zorba, as its pricing and trade often happen in bulk between larger entities in the scrap industry. Scrap businesses equipped with their shredding facilities usually market Zorba to other companies for further processing.
