Luxembourg, 14 Aug 2019 -Befesa S.A. ("Befesa"), the European market leader for steel dust and aluminium salt slags recycling services, reopened its site in Iskenderum, Turkey and resumed operations this week, having successfully completed the capacity expansion from 65k tonnes to 110k tonnes on time and within budget. Befesa started the works at the end of January.

Javier Molina, CEO of Befesa, said: "We are very pleased to be back in operations this week. With hot commissioning and ramp up, we are delivering the entire project in around seven months."

In parallel, Befesa is progressing according to schedule with the construction of its first Waelz oxide washing plant in Asia, in Pohang, South Korea. Ramp up is targeted for next quarter, Q4 2019. This will allow Befesa to offer its customers in the region with higher "washed" commercial grade Waelz oxide, similar to its European services.

The construction of Befesa's first steel dust recycling plant in China, in Changzhou (Jiangsu province), is also progressing as planned. The plant is designed for a recycling capacity of 110k tonnes of steel dust per annum and ramp up is scheduled for H2 of next year.

"We are driving progress step-by-step whilst executing our growth roadmap. I'm pleased to say Befesa is delivering despite the current volatile macro-economic environment and remaining firmly on course in executing our global expansion," Javier Molina added.
