The Applied Spectral Knowledge Podcast shares insights into sensing challenges. In this episode, our experts discuss the use of laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for sorting aluminum and scrap metals.

Season 2, Episode 4: LIBS for Metal Recycling 

Ocean Insight’s Rob Morris joins colleagues from our Applied Systems group to explore how LIBS-based technologies are addressing key challenges associated with metal recycling. Our panel features Steve Buckley, Vice President and General Manager; Lu Luo, Vice President of Sales; and Marcel Epping, Business Director. They explore topics including the role of metal recycling in the circular economy (0:52); the benefits of LIBS for aluminum recycling (2:10 and 8:02); and the challenges of designing systems for use in harsh industrial environments (15:28).
