On the way to sustainable development and customer satisfaction

Befesa Aluminium Salt Slags Recycling Services, ensures sustainable development and customer satisfaction through excellence in their management approach. This excellence is achieved by the continued investment in R+D, which allows Befesa to provide the best available technologies, ensuring a sustainable future.

Befesa Aluminium Salt Slags Recycling Services believes in the concept of the circular economy. Applying this concept and by investing innovative technology, Befesa ensures that the secondary materials produced are fully recycled into various industry sectors thus conserving natural resources.

Befesa Aluminium Salt Slags Recycling Services uses the latest technology for the production of aluminium alloys to ensure a low production residue (salt slags).

Using management systems which are based on the active participation of our employees, Befesa ensures a focus on risk control and prevention. For Befesa it is essential that all of our resources, including our human ones are protected.   

Technology leader in recycling

The technology that Befesa Aluminium Salt Slags Recycling Services has developed, ensures the integral recycling of aluminium residue, which does not generate solid residue, thus avoiding landfill disposal. This is reached through 2 cycles: in the first cycle we recover the aluminium contained in residue and generate aluminium alloys. In the second cycle the salt slags are fully recovered, producing secondary materials which avoid residue disposal. This cycle provides a second life for the materials in the industrial sector.

The complete recovery process for SPL (cut 1 and cut 2) is unique in the world and an innovative contribution for the sustainable aluminium industry. After treatment and recovery in our processes, these residues provide useful secondary materials, again avoiding the necessity for disposal.

The recovery processes used by Befesa Aluminium Salt Slags Recycling Services, are listed within the best available technologies (BAT) of the non-ferrous BREF documents issued by the European Commission.

The department of technology and equipment uses the knowledge from 50 years’ worth of experience working within the metals industry (aluminium, zinc and lead). Innovative products provided include fusion ovens, casting lines, cooling facilities, transport systems, pre-treatment systems (mills and classifying systems) of scrap and aluminium slags, etc.
