The ability to effectively treatment waste materials coming both from primary and secondary aluminium
is growing in importance. Prior and current experiences with secondary aluminium salt slag
have allowed Engitec to update the STE process both in terms of technical and of environmental
performances. We recently started looking at primary aluminium production wastes were the problems
are quite different from the secondary industry and the solutions proposed until now have not
found great success. In this paper we will describe the new Engitec approach to these wastes.
