Advanced management of industrial waste

Strategies to improve environmental management through prevetion and reuse.

The industries of the metal-mechanical sector generate a great variety and volumes of waste classified as hazardous and non-hazardous.

Reducing the amount of waste and developing new ways for its revaluation, avoiding its storage in specialized spaces or its disposal in landfills, is crucial to improve the environmental impact of the metal transformation industries and their client sectors.

AZTERLAN’s technological activity in the field of waste is carried out through prevention, separation and recovery strategies that aim to provide technologically innovative solutions that improve the competitiveness of companies.
