Removing the waste streams from the primary Aluminum production in Europe

The RemovAL project will combine, optimize and scale-up developed processing technologies for extracting base and critical metals from such industrial residues and valorising the remaining processing residues in the construction sector.

The ambition of RemovAL is straightforward: to overcome environmental issues and technological barriers related to aluminium industry, by combining and advancing existing technologies for the sustainable processing of BR, SPL and other by-products, generating revenue.

RemovAL overcomes the barriers of economic viability by pooling together and integrating proposed stand-alone solutions, while adhering to the following principles:


treat waste with waste


recover valuable critical metals


develop marketable products


customise the solution to the industrial ecostystem of each alumina plant
