Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) announced that Befesa Aluminio's aluminium recycling factory in Erandio, Vizcaya, Spain, has been accredited with the ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022) Certification. The facility produces three finished products: aluminium ingots and alloys for moulding, 1,000 kg for remelting, and liquid aluminium. All sorts of scrap and trash from the aluminium industry are recycled, recovered, and valued by the firm. Every year, the firm manufactures around 75,000 tonnes of aluminium alloys.

"We are very pleased that ASI has granted us the certification for our Erandio plant, recognizing the ESG commitment in our daily operations.

DNV Business Assurance Services UK Ltd conducted an independent, third-party audit of the Befesa Aluminio plant. The ASI Certification programme, established after intensive multi-stakeholder input, is the first complete voluntary sustainability standard project for the aluminium value chain. The ASI Performance Standard V3 (2022) was released in May 2022 following a multi-year review process.
