Several industrial tools have been grouped together on the same industrial site, Erasteel in Commentry (France) to treat different types of industrial waste containing metals:

  • For the preparation of charges: agglomeration, calcination furnace, roasting furnace
  • For the production of non-ferrous alloys:
    • arc furnace for melting metal elements
    • submerged electrode furnace for the reduction of metal oxides
    • converter (AOD) for refining alloys

All of these tools on a single site is a unique recycling solution in Europe for the recovery of metals contained in:

  • spent catalysts from the petroleum and petrochemical industry
  • the co-products of the iron and steel industry: scale, grinding, pickling baths, grinding muds …
  • pressed filter sludge or other residues from hydro-metallurgical processes
  • alkaline, saline, NiMH batteries.

Erasteel Recycling remains open to study recycling of non-ferrous metals from other types of industrial waste.

Erasteel Recycling provides its partners with a sustainable response to the optimization of the life cycle of raw materials contained.
