ALFED welcome new member European Metal Recycling (EMR)

We welcome European Metal Recycling into ALFED membership and our Recycling sector group!

EMR is a global leader in metal recycling. They are privately owned with a heritage dating back to the 1940s and employ around 4000 people operating at 150 locations around the world.

Their core business is the recycling of scrap metal from a range of sources such as End-of-Life vehicles/consumer products, industry, construction and demolition. This results in sales of recycled commodities of around 10 million tonnes a year. They have extensive ferrous and non-ferrous operations worldwide and produce over 100 grades of high quality recycled materials which are taken to market by their substantial road, rail and shipping network.

Supporting their core activities, are a range of specialist divisions including industrial clearance, total waste management, ship breaking, servicing local government service providers, solder production, cable, copper and aluminium granulation facilities and environmental consultancy. Also, through their own and their joint venture activities we are working towards becoming a zero waste company.
