One of the current essential steps of environmental protection is the recycling of various materials. Recycling not only reduces the consumption of material being processed but also consumes less energy, which is used to reprocess materials. For instance, the reprocessing of one ton of aluminium refuse requires only one twentieth of the energy required for the extraction and processing of the same quantity of metals from ore. If we realize that a whole third of the aluminium used in industry comes from recycled refuse, we have to
understand that the process of recycling is a real
fundamental step towards protecting the environment.

The processing and sorting of metallic wastes at
Anbremetall, a.s. is carried out on several high technology
lines of which, from the point of view of protecting the
environment, the line for processing of aluminium dross
and line for drying of aluminium shavings are the most
important.

 The dross line: is an up-to-date wasteless technology. In
the past, these wastes of aluminium dross were
transported to a scrap heap where the release of toxic
substances and contamination of the environment
occurred. The aluminium dross is now completely used.

 The drying of aluminium shavings line: This process
consists of removing the petroleum substances, dampness and iron by means of process of thermic heating and magnetic separation. The petroleum substances in the input raw material are used for energetic exploitation, fuel is being saved during the process of drying - natural gas is used for heating. The combustible products produced by this procedure are separated from the hot air, are burnt in a combustion chamber and subsequently cooled, which inhibits the release of dangerous substances into the atmosphere.

By using the most up-to-date technologies in Anbremetall, a.s. the quantity of emissions released into the atmosphere is significantly reduced as well as the quantity of waste sent to dumping sites.

Anbremetall, a.s. was, as the first company of this type to be awarded integrated approval from the IPPC in accordance with Act no. 76/2000 Coll., on Integrated prevention and reducing pollution.
