IBERFOIL Integra, for a sustainable world and industry

IBERFOIL, specialist in aluminium rolling, presented last week IBERFOIL Integra project at the Hydrogen Foundation in Huesca.

This project aims to melt and recycle aluminium scrap and is set to become an industrial reference of Circular Economy in Spain.

IBERFOIL Integra will not only increase the recyclability of aluminium in Spain, but also guarantee the supply of raw materials in essential industries such as food and pharmaceuticals, among others. It also means a 45% reduction in CO2 emissions and a 90% reduction in energy consumption compared to primary aluminium.

The purpose of this project is to reduce, recycle and reuse a material such as aluminium that can be melted infinite times without losing its properties, achieving a Circular Economy with zero waste.

ALIBÉRICO is investing in a more sustainable future. Furthermore, this project will help to create social wealth with new and stable jobs.

IBERFOIL is once again committed to people, industry, innovation and sustainability (SDGs 7, 8, 9, 12, 13 and 15).

GRUPO ALIBERICO PRESENTS IN HUESCA ITS CIRCULAR ECONOMY PROJECT IBERFOIL INTEGRA

The presentation was held at the headquarters of the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation in Huesca, with the presence of the Vice President and Counsellor of Industry, Competitiveness and Business Development of the Government of Aragon, Arturo Aliaga.

The project contemplates the investment of more than 42 million euros and involves the creation of 40 direct jobs in a first phase, 75 in a second phase, and 400 indirect jobs, in addition to consolidating the current 110 jobs.

The president of Grupo Aliberico and president of Iberfoil Aragón, Clemente González Soler, emphasized that it is “an essential and strategic project for Spain, as it is the only plant in our country that laminates thin aluminium foil for the pharmaceutical and food sectors”.

Huesca, September 27th – The president of Grupo Alibérico, Clemente González Soler, has presented today at the headquarters of the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation in Huesca, in the presence of the vice-president and counsellor of Industry, Competitiveness and Business Development of the Government of Aragon, Arturo Aliaga, the Iberfoil Integra project, which involves an investment of more than 42 million euros and is set to become a benchmark for the Circular Economy model in Spain.

The Iberfoil Integra project, which has been declared of regional interest by the Government of Aragon, involves the design and development of a new plant within the current Iberfoil Aragon factory site in Sabiñánigo (Huesca), which will be equipped with melting furnaces that will be able to use up to 100% hydrogen as fuel in the future and, therefore, reduce and avoid CO2 emissions from this type of process in the current aluminium industries.

The new plant is expected to create 40 direct jobs in the first phase, 75 in the second phase, and 400 indirect jobs, in addition to consolidating the current 110 jobs.

The president of Grupo Aliberico and president of Iberfoil Aragon, Clemente González Soler, highlighted in the presentation of Iberfoil Integra that it is “an essential and strategic project for Spain, as it is the only plant of its kind in our country dedicated to the lamination of thin aluminium foil for the pharmaceutical and food sectors”.

Furthermore, the president of Grupo Aliberico emphasised that “in a world that is becoming increasingly less global and more local, the security of supplies of raw materials will be key for the industry and the economy of the countries”.

The Iberfoil Integra project, which was already advanced by the president of Grupo Aliberico on 17 May, the day on which the third vice-president of the Government and Minister for Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, presented the draft Law on Waste and Contaminated Soil, aims to integrate the new melting and continuous casting factory to manufacture aluminium coils from aluminium scrap.

Clemente González Soler assured that, “although this is a project that will provide greater autonomy and independence to Grupo Aliberico, our intention is to maintain, as until now, the collaboration and supply agreements with Aludium Amorebieta”, the company’s main supplier of raw materials.

The new factory for scrap recovery, melting and manufacturing of 6 mm thick coils from continuous casting, will have a surface area of more than 45,000 square metres, and will be located in an area adjacent to the current plant, whose land was acquired in 2014 by Aliberico after the bankruptcy of INASA.

In the new plant, Iberfoil’s own scrap and scrap from other Aliberico plants and those of its customers in Spain will be recovered by melting them in five furnaces (one rotary, two melting and two holding furnaces), producing liquid aluminium that will feed two continuous casting lines that will produce 25,000 tonnes of coils per year.

Clemente González Soler participated in the Industrialized Construction forum at Rebuild 2021

During these days, the National Congress of Advanced Architecture and Construction 4.0, Rebuild 2021 has taken place. One of the most important architecture fairs on the international scene.

This space of convergence is where the leading companies of the sector meet to discuss the future of architecture: innovation, sustainability and digitization for this sector. The President of ALIBERICO, Clemente González Soler, has participated as a speaker in one of these events.

Within the Industrialization forum, under the slogan ‘Industrialization: Road with no return‘, important topics such as the industrialization of architecture, the challenges to overcome to implement industrialization in construction or how the industry can drive the transformation of the sector have been discussed. Also the evolution of materials, the investment in R&D, or the unification and planning of processes as a basis for promoting the industrialization of construction have been conversed.

Developing industrialized construction can ultimately lead to savings in processes, materials and something that is currently of great concern, which is the improvement of sustainability, the reduction of the carbon footprint and the recycling of materials to encourage the circular economy. In this sense, the President of ALIBERICO explained that “One of the fundamental pillars for the success of industrialization is the selection of MATERIALS, which lighten the weight, are recyclable, sustainable and offer high properties“.

The industrialization of construction in the housing sector is a great opportunity that is also accompanied by opportunities in other large constructions such as hospitals, hotels… Something that ALUCOIL® is already working on with its project for the creation and assembly of SANILUX, modular operating rooms and that in the near future, as ALIBERICO‘s President, Clemente González Soler, has revealed for the first time, will be accompanied by the creation of aluminium bathrooms in series.

In ALIBERICO we design today the materials of the future.

ALUCOAT joins ASI, the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative

The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative, ASI, is a certification and standard-setting organization that recognizes and promotes responsible aluminium production, sourcing and stewardship. This global initiative was created to support members of responsible supply chains and is the result of producers, users and stakeholders coming together to create an agreement on “responsible aluminium”. This enables the entire aluminium industry to demonstrate accountability and provide independent, credible and verifiable evidence of its environmental, social and management performance.

Certification according to ASI Performance Standard Certification is based on 11 principles and 62 criteria including production management, business integrity, transparency, materials stewardship, environmental care, CO2 emissions or labor rights.

ALUCOAT, specialist in coated aluminium coils between 20 and 500 microns, has joined this initiative as a member since June, being this the beginning of the path towards obtaining the certification ASI Performance Standard Certification in the next two years to demonstrate the responsible aluminium production, supply and management.

ALUCOAT,  committed to SDGs: industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9), responsible production and consumption (SDG 12) and climate action (SDG 13).
