Developing sustainable materials - that's our job.
And we do it by refining by-products from steel production, as well as by sustainably exploiting natural resources. With a single clear ambition: to be a zero waste company in everything we do. We strive for an optimal (re-)use of materials, both inside and outside our company. That’s also why we put strong emphasis on research and development. We apply the innovative technologies that we develop in our own business operations, but we are equally happy to implement them in other companies.
A sustainable circular economy - that's what we believe in
An economy in which no materials get lost, where raw materials and residual streams are used and reused intelligently, and where companies collaborate more closely with one another.
We´ve been recovering residual fractions from the steel industry and extracting natural resources ever since 1996.
The raw materials were mainly marketed by TRC (Trading and Recycling Company), the extraction and production by our subsidiaries Recmix, Recoval, Elzasel and Sprimont Blue.
In 2016 TRC was renamed Orbix. The subsidiaries Recmix and Elzasel were also merged into the new company.
The name Orbix wasn´t chosen by accident, since Orbix refers to ´orbis´, which means ´circle´ in Latin. In other words, a name that is perfectly in keeping with our vision of circular entrepreneurship. Our company is imbued with circular thinking. And since 2016 it’s also a part of our name.
