•    Description: Recycling is a mature, well-developed industry. However, the introduction of aluminum-bodied vehicles presents multiple opportunities as well as challenges. This article looks at the collection and sorting of aluminum scrap and how new and forthcoming technologies can help processors convert zorba (a mixed fraction of nonferrous scrap metals) into furnace ready aluminum feedstock in order to meet domestic opportunities in the U.S. for automotive aluminum. X-Ray Transmission, X-Ray Fluorescence, and Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy technologies are discussed.
