Three methods were tested for the beneficiation of aluminum scrap, generated by heavy medium separation of non-ferrous automobile scrap residue. These were: crushing in a shredder followed by screening; grinding in a ball mill followed by screening; and eddy current separation. The best results were obtained with the grinding-screening method.
