Circular Economy and Recycling

At CELSA Group we are already circular. 93% of the materials we use in production are recycled, 100% of the products we generate are recyclable and we recover more than 90% of the waste generated by our production process. We recycle more thant 9.5 million tons of materials, including ferrous scrap, waste from our own production processes, plastics, and other non-ferrous metals. Of that total, we use more than 8 million tons of iron scrap (the equivalent of more than 1,000 full football fields) to the production of steel.

With this we avoid the accumulation of waste in landfills, and we once again obtain steel products of high value for society without the need to undermine natural resources.

Thanks to our sustainable and circular model we produce 7 million tons of steel, avoiding the consumption of 3.6 million cubic meters of water annually, the consumption of 9,500 GWh of energy; emissions of 13.6 million tons of CO2, and the extraction of more than 7 million cubic meters of natural resources, the equivalent of the volume that 7 Empire State Buildings would occupy.

We contribute to the annual recycling of 9.5 million tons of waste, far more than all the paper, glass, plastic, wood, tires, and other metals that are recycled throughout Spain every year. Among them, we recycle more than 8 tons of scrap to produce our circular steel.

The products manufactured in the CELSA Group plants are also infinitely recyclable. The management of waste inherent in the circular process is a priority fully integrated into our operations.

Thanks to our industrial model we are leading the circular transformation.

Steel is one of the most recyclable and recycled materials in the world. It can be recycled continuously without losing its properties.

Thanks to its magnetic properties, it can be easily recovered for recycling.

CELSA Group™ reuses, recycles, and valorizes more than 90% of the residue it generates.

Making steel from scrap metal avoids the equivalent of the water consumption of a city of 75,000 people, and the energy consumption of a city of 2.5 million inhabitants.

Scrap recycling reduces the consumption of raw materials in steelmaking by 90%.
