Europlasma, specialist in treatment and hazardous waste, material recovery and decarbonization, has detailed its investment plan aimed at improving the competitiveness and profitability of its new subsidiary Satma Industries, specialized in the treatment electrochemical process (anodizing) of high purity aluminum sheets used in the manufacture of high value-added electrolytic capacitors for industry.Europlasma is investing in a latest generation anodizing machine. This equipment, which will add a new production line and represents an investment valued at approximately EUR 2.5 million, will provide Satma Industries with a more robust and flexible production tool with increased processing capacities. This new line will be equipped with 5 separate bath tanks compared to 3 or 2 on the 12 existing lines. According to the supplier's data, this line will have twice the productivity of the previous ones while reducing energy consumption by more than 25%.While improving its profitability, this investment should enable Satma Industries to gain market share in the low voltage segment, on the one hand, and to reposition itself in the high voltage market, on the other. Indeed, beyond the productivity gains linked to the rate of manufacture, the energy component is decisive in price competitiveness.In addition, Europlasma is studying the feasibility of installing a Solid Recovered Fuel boiler on site, which would be supplied by Chopex, another Europlasma subsidiary. This additional investment would allow Satma Industries to gain independence thanks to a self-supply available free of charge and to desensitize itself to the fluctuation of energy prices for even more competitiveness.
