Ferrous metals

From the early days we have been specializing in the recycling of ferrous metals.

Our group has grown and has diversified its activities over the course of the years.
Nowadays we process a volume of 850,000 tonnes per year.

Our tools enable us to achieve unrivalled production performances thanks to our 7,000 hp shredder, the most powerful shredder in Europe, at our Obourg site and a 3,000 hp shredder for the specific shredding of combustion engines and WEEE at our Châtelet site. Thanks to its shredders, Cometsambre has become one of the major suppliers for the iron and steel industry in Belgium, in Europe and all over the world; also thanks to our export site in Ghent. The latter enables us to load ships exceeding 40,000 tonnes and puts us in a favourable position in a market that has been globalizing more and more over the years.

These production sites are supplied by the subsidiaries collecting ferrous metals in Belgium (Recymet, Bricofer, VMR and Ecofer) and in France (Cornu, Gosselin Duriez, Récupération du Nord and Comet France in Bonneuil sur Marne)
