20 PRODUCTION MACHINING : APRIL 2017 Helping Precision Machine Shops Be More ProducƟve and Proftable eventually those unleaded brass items will be salvaged and recycled as scrap. • The mixing of unleaded brass scrap with traditional leaded brass scrap in the post-consumer (salvage) scrap markets could poison the supply of recycled feedstock for the mills that produce our brass barstocks. • PMPA is working with a coalition of suppliers and other interested parties to help draft a standard practice for marking brass items to assure ease of sorting during sal - vage and scrapping operations to prevent the contami- nation of the various recycling streams that feed our sour ces of supply. What You Can Do Maintaining material identity and maintaining strict segre- gation of the various types of brass scrap—chips, bar ends, and so on —is essential to assure that your scrap recovery is problem free. Cross contamination could result in suppliers refusing your scrap, leaving you with an expensive waste dis- posal problem and loss on your operations. For mor e information, contact Miles Free, director of industry research and technology, at PMPA.
