About EMR Group

Company Overview
EMR's purpose is to create a future where the materials we use do not need to be extracted from the planet. We recycle over 10 million tonnes of metal and plastics each year, anything from an aluminium can to an aircraft carrier. This saves 12m tonnes of CO2 compared to virgin ore, equivalent to 3,776,224 acres of Amazon rainforest, an area the size of Northern Ireland. We work internationally with industry, government bodies and the public to turn end-of-life materials, including consumer products, vehicles, and materials from industry, construction, and demolition, into valuable resources, making the circular economy a reality.
