Harsco’s ALTEK Becomes First and Only Global Provider of End-To-End Solutions for Sustainable Aluminum Production
- Harsco’s ALTEK now handles every step of aluminum dross processing as the first and only commercially viable and scalable full-service solutions provider for the global aluminum industry.
- ALTEK is the first provider of breakthrough in-house salt slag recycling solution AluSalt™.
Today, ALTEK offers a proven and scalable total dross management service. ALTEK’s innovative product range is considered the best available technology, recovering more than 45 percent aluminum, depending on existing recovery techniques, than has traditionally been possible.
“ALTEK is providing modern solutions to age-old problems, drastically reducing atmospheric pollution and pushing the aluminum industry to a zero-waste scenario through sustainable methods of producing aluminum,” said
The cost-efficient recovery of metal and other valuable materials – and environmentally safe solutions for residual waste materials – is increasingly important to the aluminum industry. “Its properties make aluminum a vital resource for a climate neutral and circular economy, and the material of the future for applications in key sectors (including transport, construction, packaging, renewable energy technologies). These characteristics explain a projected 40 percent growth in demand for aluminum between 2019 and 2050.” (European Aluminum) “Every cast house is an opportunity for innovation, and we are delivering end-to-end solutions that improve cast house operations, including aluminum dross processing systems,” said
ALTEK is the first provider of a commercially viable and fully scalable in-house salt slag recycling solution available to the aluminum industry. The AluSalt™ salt slag processing technology enables aluminum producers to recycle metallics and salts, recover other non-metallic products (NMPs) and achieve zero waste, addressing one of the largest environmental concerns within the aluminum market.
In addition to AluSalt, the Company’s total dross management solutions include:
- ALTEK Cast Steel Dross & Slag Bins
- Tardis Gen.
II Dross Press
- Melting Solutions Rotary Furnace
- Harsco Applied Products Metallurgical Additives
