Industry 4.0 for the Upcycling of Automotive Aluminum Scrap
"The heart of Industry 4.0 lies in the connectivity of not only systems and data, but also of stakeholders and decision makers."
VALIS is driven to deliver enhanced connectivity through software tools that provide closed-loop control for scrap metal and the recycling industry. By bringing together scrap processor and scrap consumers, there becomes new opportunities for the upcycling of post-consumer scrap from end-of-life items such as vehicles.
VALIS CEO Emily Molstad and CTO Caleb Ralphs have teamed up to develop the technology needed to decrease emissions and maximize aluminum upcycling while reducing overall costs. Below are the sections discussed in VALIS’ latest article, Industry 4.0 for the Upcycling of Automotive Aluminum Scrap.
