The ENEXAL Project
The aim of the project was to provide the aluminum industry with "green" technologies aimed at a significant increase in the energy efficiency of the production process, a substantial reduction in atmospheric emissions and the elimination of solid waste (red sludge).
AIT's Cleantech technology has been successfully used to recycle red sludge. The project has shown that the EAF Cleantech transform solid waste such as red sludge or steel mill dust into an inert by-product that can be used as a raw material for the production of mineral wool and at the same time recovers all the metals in the form of ingots, which can be used. by steel companies in the steel production process.
The Enexal Project was led by a consortium made up of European companies and universities including:
ALSA (Alouminion AE- Coordinator)
NTUA (Technical University of Athens)
RWTHA (Rhine-Westphalia Technical University)
ETHZ (Faculty of Engineering, University of Zurich)
SIRMIUM STEEL (steel mill)
