Noranda Expands Operations into
Toronto— Noranda Inc. is investing in a new electronic
hardware recycling facility in Canada. The state-of-the-art operation,
the only one of its kind in Canada, will be located in an 82,200 square-foot
industrial facility in Brampton, Ontario, approximately 30km northwest
of the City of Toronto. The new facility is expected to be operational
by summer 2003.
The expansion is a direct response to increasing volumes of end-of-life
electronics in Canada. Noranda's recycling processes ensure that unwanted
hardware is recycled in a way that conserves resources and promotes sustainable
development. Capital investment in the project is expected to be approximately
$3 million and will create about 20 new jobs during the initial start-up.
Material from the new Brampton plant will be shipped to Noranda's Horne
smelter in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec for further processing and metal recovery.
Noranda's Brampton recycling facility, to be called "Noranda Recycling",
enhances the company's commitment to environmentally sound recycling of
Electronics recycled at Noranda Recycling will come from many sources
across Canada including electronic equipment manufacturers, businesses,
governments and municipalities. The plant is expected to process approximately
one million pounds a month of end-of-life electronics after ramp-up and
100% of all electronic hardware will be recycled.
