Hammerer Aluminium Industries has announced an investment of 4.5 million euros in a third melting furnace for recycling material for the casting at the Santana site in Romania.

We are implementing this project quickly and will be able to provide the market with high-quality recycling material at full capacity from the beginning of 2022, as planned, and thus meet the increasing demand of our customers“, HAI CEO Rob van Gils (right) stated.

For the planning and implementation of the high-technology recycling melting furnace the HAI group is working with the mechanical engineering company Hertwich Engineering GmbH from Braunau in Upper Austria. The new plant for recycling material creates an essential combination of low energy consumption and maximum metal yield. An operating principle that fits perfectly into the sustainability strategy of Hammerer Aluminium Industries.

“Customers and investors demand a real transformation towards sustainable economic activities, both ecologically and socially. The topics CO2 emissions and recycling economy will continue to gain importance. With a recycling rate of up to 80 % our company is a pioneer in the aluminium industry. We are highly motivated to press ahead with these processes“,
