When the members of the project team looked at recycling scrap metal from metal parts production, they took a closer look at the individual components. They began collecting the metals separately and examined individual recycling options.
The result is impressive: scrap metal from uncoated, cold-rolled belts can now be reused in another production area, the foundry. In our own melting furnace, the leftovers go back into the in-house material cycle instead of entering the recycling chain as scrap metal via external service providers.
As a result, the site is cutting the amount of scrap metal to be transported and processed by recycling companies by 25 t per year. A further 14 t of scrap metal is saved annually through optimized processes and improved cooperation with suppliers.
