As of 2021, the “Valdi” trademark will be replaced by “ERASTEEL RECYCLING”. Accordingly, all Erasteel’s recycling activities are now united under the “ERASTEEL RECYCLING” banner.
Behind this change, a strong ambition: to be a European leader in the recycling of strategic metals (nickel, cobalt, molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium). This involves 3 families of recycled materials: catalysts from oil refineries, batteries, and co-products from the metallurgy (oxides, scales, etc.) and chemical industries (metal hydroxides).
This recycling activity results in the recovery of several strategic metals that are then reused in the manufacture of new Erasteel products or those of other leading European metallurgy companies.
Since 2015, the Group has invested nearly €30 million to develop specific processes and dedicated equipment at the Erasteel Commentry site. This makes it a unique facility in Europe.
On the strength of these investments and its long-standing expertise, Erasteel is now able to provide a sustainable approach to optimizing raw material life cycles thanks to these more virtuous metallurgical solutions.
