    Modernisation of a recycling plant.

    On 16th August 2018, TRIMET Aluminium revealed that it is modernising its recycling plant in Gelsenkirchen to ensure more productivity, save resources and protect the environment. TRIMET produces about 235,000 tonnes of recycled aluminium annually.

    During 2018 and 2019, the company is investing in the high single-digit million euro range in both technical equipment and environmental protection measures.

    In Gelsenkirchen, TRIMET will install a new rotary drum furnace, which is expected to be put into operation by the end of 2018. With a capacity of around 40 tonnes, it will replace two existing furnaces. The new burner technology reduces the furnace’s energy requirements by 15%, while also increasing the proportion of recovered metal. The intelligent loading technology also enables quicker filling, increasing the quantity of material per melting process.

    In addition to production technology, TRIMET is investing in further improvements to environmental and occupational safety. New extraction systems will further reduce dust emissions, which are already below the legal limits. In spring 2018, TRIMET had already roofed over the storage areas of the Gelsenkirchen recycling plant and equipped it with a new exhaust system.
