Waste matters and by-products
At Aperam South America, the 3 Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) govern the waste management policy and the production process, which also take into account the principles of reverse logistics. Since 2013, the initiatives in this area are being further intensified, particularly as regards materials that are converted into by-products and sold to different industrial segments.
In 2014, sales of Aperam’s by-products reached the best result in the last six years, going from a total of R$15,24 million in 2011 to R$29,73 million in 2014, surpassing the R$ 25,4 million target. In 2015, we will be looking into the reusing of other residues, adding even more value to environmental management.
