The concept of sustainable development, to make relentless technological development of current consumer society compatible with the preservation of nature that surrounds us as a fundamental value, is now widely accepted by the developed world. The recycling of wastes, to be able to convert a major concern in a source of valuable raw materials, is one of the radical axis in which the environmental policy of the European Union rests; the policy of the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The use of scrap in metallurgy is perhaps one of the most ancient and most effective recycling examples. In Spain, for instance, after the industrial reconversion of the steel industry in the eighties, the Spanish metalwork industry is firmly committed to the production of electric furnace steel using ferrous scrap as raw material.

Since the establishment of COMETAL in 1963, the firm commitment to a continuous search for efficient industrial facilities, environmentally friendly and technologically advanced, in which the wastes generated by our customers could be recycled, has been one of the constants concerns which accompanied our evolution throughout all these years. Steel dusts, spent catalysts, wastes of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), batteries, non ferrous scrap and in general any metal bearing residue with possibilities to be recycled cost-effectively are always of interest to COMETAL. Our agreements with several recyclers in the European Union allow us to offer our customers reliable solutions, with full traceability and economically interesting for the management of metal containing residues.
