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.
