Funding secured for PMC plant in Delfzijl
The Dutch Purified Metal Company has secured funding to build a state-of-the-art plant, which will be used to recycle steel scrap contaminated with asbestos, turning it into a high-quality raw material for the steel industry.
As well as getting rid of the contamination, the recycling process will save 150,000 tonnes of CO2 per year in comparison to steel production using iron ore — a saving that equates to the annual CO2 emissions of 45,000 cars. The company hopes to see the plant up and running no later than July 2020.
Shareholder and financier Jansen Recycling Group has been closely involved in this innovative circular solution from the very beginning. PMC’s new plant offers a solution for steel scrap contaminated with asbestos — an issue with which we are all too familiar within the scrap market. New, uncontaminated raw material will be produced from the contaminated steel. PMC’s concept also fits in seamlessly with our ambition to implement innovative circular solutions.
