Harsco expands in Middle East

Harsco Corporation announced new contracts in the Gulf Region of the Middle East totaling close to $5 million over 3 years that will make Harsco one of the environmental services providers to that region’s growing aluminum industry.

Operating through a Harsco-controlled joint venture partnership in Bahrain called AluServ, Harsco serves the Gulf Region as one of the leading processors of aluminum dross, a metal-containing by-product of aluminum production. As the region continues to expand its aluminum output, Harsco is responding with the installation of a rotating tilting furnace (RTF) that will make Harsco the largest dross processor in the Gulf Region and also enable the company to serve an increasing number of customers. The new RTF facility will be integrated with a new salt cake processing plant also being installed by Harsco that will give the region an environmentally-responsive, zero waste solution for the recycling of aluminum dross.
