State of the art recycling & refining of multi-metals.
We have built a reputation as a reliable partner since 1919. To continue handling the increasing complexity of materials, we are committed to research and development and creating sustainable processes and technologies.
WE BUILD TRUST WITH EXPERTISE & KNOW-HOW
We are particularly proud of our unique expertise and our reputation as a reliable partner. To continue handling the increasing complexity of materials, we progressively build a team with broad and deep knowledge of markets, materials, quality analysis, pricing mechanisms and technologies. Our years of experience result in top performance of our processes and valuable solutions.
We use complex metallic and oxidic secondary raw materials to feed our furnaces, ranging from high grade to low grade. Materials are sourced through the entire supply chain, from metal merchants, scrap and waste processors to industry itself.
Whether you meet with one of the Team Members at a meeting, your yard, your office or whether you make a phone call to our office, our buyers and back office staff are keen to discuss solutions for the following materials with you:
- Traditional commodities like mixed copper, copper chops, heavy bus bars, …
- Typical refinery grades ocean, ebony/gunmetal, alu-bronze, ref brass
- More complex materials like residues and copper clad steel
- A variety of oxidic and metallic tin containing materials
Quality, sampling & assaying
In accordance with supplier's requirements and international standards, samples are taken from the sourced materials for chemical assaying in trust or in the presence of a neutral surveyor. After the quality assessment and the supplier’s agreement on the assays, the material is released for processing.
Smelting & refining
Our technologies, in most cases invented and realized by our own engineers, give us a unique worldwide position in the valorisation of metal and metal compounds. They are based on cost and energy efficient pyro- and hydrometallurgical processes. Over 350,000 tons of raw materials are recycled annually through the different stages of our recycling processes. We smelt complex metallic and oxidic secondary raw materials to feed our furnaces, ranging from high grade to low grade.
The procurement of raw materials for the Beerse site is done by a fully integrated commercial team managed on Aurubis Group level. The team is dedicated to service Aurubis' global supplier base with a hands-on mentality. All team members, buyers and back-office, are thoroughly trained in-house. They are easy to approach and more than happy to get in touch!
