Industrial strategy

A future-oriented commitment to the circular economy

The industrial plan the company has launched aims to lead the production of circular green aluminum in Southern Europe and includes investments of up to 150 million over the next 8 years, divided into three different phases.

In this new stage, Alu Ibérica makes a determined and future-oriented commitment to the circular economy, recycling and renewable energy. The industrial plan the company has created, aims to lead the production of circular green aluminum in Southern Europe without depending on the price of energy, and contemplates investments of up to 150 million during the next 8 years, divided into three different phases.

The first phase, which is already underway and will run until 2022, addresses major improvements in equipment and infrastructure. The modernization of the foundries of both plants is already being carried out, with actions such as the conversion to gas of the La Coruña plant as well as the creation of a refinery plant, and the installation of scrap pre-treatment plants for use and market in both plants. In addition, the integration of the management systems of the two plants has been completed, the new Recycled Metal Quality Control Department has been created, and the market has been developed to achieve a metal sales volume of more than 180,000 tons by year.

During the two successive phases (2022-2024 and 2025-2028), the modernization of the homogenizing technology of the foundries will be completed, and new products derived from aluminum will be developed. Also, important logistical improvements will be undertaken in the ports of Avilés and La Coruña and renewable energy sources will be installed for self-supply. Investments will be completed in the last stage with a large aluminum management and recycling plant, and new projects to generate added value to our products for application in the automotive and/or industrial sectors, such as aluminum parts and components.
