Turkish steel maker Tosyali Holding’s Algerian subsidiary Tosyali Algeria has entrusted the management of its waste to Lafarge Algeria, which will recycle this waste into secondary raw material and electricity for the operation of its plants. Tosyali Algeria’s industrial waste, collected in its plant located in Bethioua in the town of Oran, into secondary raw material. Lafarge will use this raw material in its cement plants as a substitute for quarried iron ore, a non-renewable and scarce rock at national level.Lafarge will collect part of the iron sludge from the Bethioua steel plant, which has a production capacity of between 50,000 and 70,000 tonnes per month. This scrap will be transferred to its industrial waste treatment plant near the Oggaz cement plant in Mascara province. The facility is designed to process an average of 2 tons of industrial waste per day.In addition to preserving iron ore and combating industrial pollution in Algeria, this recycling project will also enable the production of electricity for the operation of Lafarge’s plants. To reduce its environmental impact, the Tosyali group is also implementing 100 research and development projects focused on the production of low-carbon steel worldwide, says its director Ibrahim Alciboga.
