Circular Economy and Recycling

CELSA Group™ takes the principles of the circular economy as a working philosophy. Currently, all the activities of the companies of the group are developed according these principles. Returning products to their life cycle is our priority.

Annually we recycle more than eight million tons of ferrous scrap, which would mean more than 1,000 full soccer fields. Thus, we avoid the accumulation of waste in landfills and obtain high value steel products for the society preserving natural resources.

“We believe in a sustainable development that provides future generations a better future”


Annually we recycle more than 8,000,000 tons of scrap, which means melting a long line of cars that could wrap around the world every year

The products manufactured in the CELSA Group™ plants are eternally recyclable.

The waste management inherent to the steelmaking process has become one of CELSA Group´s™ priorities in recent years.

These generated materials are considered co-products because of their high intrinsic value and their capacity to be used as secondary raw materials for other industrial processes.


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, is can be easily recovered for recycling.

CELSA Group™ reuses, recycles and values more than 90% of the remaining waste it generates.

Making steel from scrap reduces energy consumption by almost 75%.

Recycling of scrap reduces the consumption of raw materials in the manufacturing of steel by 90%.


Ingenium is a talent support program born from the hand of CELSA Group ™. It seeks to lead and face the transformation that Industry 4.0 poses and especially the steel sector. Employees, entrepreneurs and startups from around the world are called to present their most innovative ideas to face the current and future challenges of the steel industry.

CELSA Group ™ firmly believes that new technologies are the key to reinventing the sector and, therefore, the Ingenium program is an active part of this great digital transformation.

In each edition, relevant challenges are defined for CELSA Group ™, on which interested parties are invited to provide solutions. Once the registration deadline is closed, a team of CELSA Group ™ experts selects the best proposals. The finalists participate in a "Demo Day", a two-day face-to-face event where the projects will be presented and groups organized to improve them. During these two days, the entrepreneurs have access to the company and get to know its facilities and problems, and work together with the professionals of the Group in the improvement of their proposals. During this time, candidates have access to:

• Mentoring by the senior managers of CELSA Group™.
• Value contacts for the development of your "startup".
• A future strategic relationship with the Group.
• A possible participation of CELSA Group ™ in the "startup".
• Real possibilities of escalation within the company if the solution proves effective.
