The CSIRO team has proposed a process that would combine hydraulic classification to remove plastic, foam, rubber and other low-density, nonmetallic materials, magnetic separation to concentrate clean steel, and gravity concentration in a jig to separate low-density materials like calcite and glass from the high-density metals like copper, lead and brass.
