RADIATION
UCG Recycling is designed for the efficient high volume processing of all grades of steel, stainless steel, and alloy scrap. Due to the large size of the business, it is vital that highly trained personnel thoroughly inspect all materials to prevent cross contamination & the staff coming into contact with harmful substances.
As a result of a large number of mines, radioactive scrap is a major problem affecting the metal recycling industry in South Africa. In response to this problem, UCG has recently commissioned the placement of radiation detection units to prevent radioactive scrap from entering the premises.
UCG Recycling are currently in the process of acquiring a special nuclear license that enables UCG to handle radioactive material & further rid the environment of these harmful elements.
Through the collection & processing of scrap into industrially reusable commodities, we are being environmentally responsible and encouraging conservation of our natural resources.
