Rizzinox offers its suppliers the service of picking up scrap directly from their premises, saving them the hassle of organising transportation. It ensures timely collection and safe transfer of goods in full compliance with current regulations.

Rizzinox's vehicle fleet includes articulated trucks and lorries equipped with and without cranes, offering maximum flexibility and adaptability to accommodate any need regarding space, quantity and quality of materials to be transported.

Materials can be collected or delivered to our facility in compliance with  European Regulation 333/715, i.e. with a transport document and declaration of conformity, or with a Waste Identification Form as per our Ordinary Authorisation.


Rizzinox is able to thoroughly check and analyse the materials delivered to its facility in order to ensure the most advantageous cost for suppliers and high-quality materials for customers.

Upon unloading, initial checks on the type and quality of the material are performed using portable Niton XL2 800 Plus analysers from Thermo Scientific, which allow an initial assessment of its chemical composition.

These devices work by using the photoelectric effect, where electromagnetic radiation produced by the X-ray tube hits the surface of the material, usually metallic, causing the material to emit electrons. By measuring the kinetic energy of these electrons, the analyser determines the bond energy, which provides insight into the material's chemical composition. However, this method only allows the examination of the surface layers of a solid material.

For a more in-depth and accurate analysis, Rizzinox's laboratory uses an Ametek SPECTROMAX X spectrometer, which employs atomic emission spectrometry to analyse the characteristic light spectrum emitted by the excited metal atoms.

Spark spectrometry is particularly suitable for analysing metals and metalloids, offering extremely precise results, often reaching down to one part per million. During the analysis, a spark vaporises the atoms of the sample being tested, generating electromagnetic radiation that is then conveyed to the spectrometer optics, either directly or through an optical fibre. At this stage, the radiation is split into different wavelengths forming a spectrum. This analysis makes it possible to determine both the quality and quantity of the elements comprising the sample analysed.


Rizzinox is deeply committed to environmental responsibility and continually strives for process optimisation and equipment innovation to ensure that all operations are carried out in a more efficient and environmentally friendly manner.

Radiometric monitoring is a crucial aspect of our environmental protection efforts. Every material passing through our warehouse is subjected to a thorough radiometric check. Using a fixed radiometric portal, incoming and outgoing vehicles loaded with material pass through panels that scan for any radiogenic sources.

After unloading, while the material is still on the ground, a further check is performed using a portable detector. This device enables the operator to conduct detailed and precise inspections on the entire load at close range.

The results of each check are recorded and kept in accordance with the regulations in force and following the guidelines contained in the internal radiometric monitoring procedures prepared by a qualified radiation protection expert.
