Shall be made up of a combination of the nonfer-

rous metals: aluminum, copper, lead, magnesium,

stainless steel, nickel, tin, and zinc, in elemental or

alloyed (solid) form. The percentage of each metal

within the nonferrous concentrate shall be subject

to agreement between buyer and seller. Material

generated by eddy current, air separation, flota-

tion, screening, other segregation technique(s), or a

combination thereof. Shall have passed one or more

magnets to reduce or eliminate free iron and/or large

iron attachments. Shall be free of radioactive mate-

rial, dross, or ash. Material to be bought/sold under

this guideline shall be identified as “Zorba” with a

number to follow indicating the estimated percent-

age nonferrous metal content of the material (e.g.,

“Zorba 90” means the material contains approxi-

mately 90% nonferrous metal content). May also

be screened to permit description by specific size

ranges. (Refer also to Zorba under Mixed Metals.)
