Hydro opens recycling center in Germany
Norsk Hydro ASA (Hydro) has opened a new 50,000 ton remelting
facility at the Alunorf plant in Neuss, Germany, bringing
Hydro’s total recycling capacity in Germany to 150,000
tons of aluminum.
The Hydro recycling center is a state-of-the-art facility
that saves energy by burning lacquer, as attached to
the scrap metal, and directly using the emerging gas
to power the remelting process.
The center’s environmental features include a regenerative
combustion system, the complete reuse of process remains
and indoor scrap handling.
