Grupo Otua initiates the Resalox project, a new technological research and development project which is encompassed within its strategic line of Innovation to serve the environment.
This project is the result of a joint cooperation between Grupo Otua and Gerdau, two innovative companies from two related sectors (metallic recycling and metallurgy) with the aim of providing value to a secondary raw material.
Participant companies and Research Centres
Resal, a company of the Otua Group dedicated to the treatment of salt slag from the second fusion aluminium refining process, is working together with Gerdau Aceros Especiales Europa, a company dedicated to producing special steels.
The development of this project involves the R&D departments from each of the participating Groups, Fundación Inatec and Gerdau R&D.
The main aim of the Resalox research project is to provide value to a secondary raw material.
The environment wins, we all win.
The potential benefits of this research project will be visible at all levels:
- Environmental level: a recycled material is introduced into the industrial process, contributing to the conservation of the natural raw materials.
- Industrial level: improvement of the recycling ratios.
- Financial level: cost savings.
