Silflex now offers lead recycling for all lead in any condition. This includes but is not limited to lead blankets, bricks, shot, sheets and encased lead. This is a great opportunity to recycle old unusable lead and receive new age shielding in return.
By recycling lead instead of disposing there are saved disposal costs and storage space for nuclear facilities. Being an asset material instead of mixed waste significantly decreases shipping costs and time consuming challenges found in disposal.
Old and worn out lead wool blankets take up space in the plant. Old lead blankets are damaged or sagging. Some plants simply have way too many blankets because the environment of the plant has changed over the years. Contact your local representative to get more information on lead blanket recycling and Silflex and lead blanket replacement leasing options.
