At ABS we put into practice courses and activities focused on waste management and recovery of materials that come from our steel production processes. Ecogravel® is one of these; it is a black or white granular sand by-product that we have been transforming for use in different sectors since 2005. Ecogravel® Black is a high-performance component mixed in concrete, cementitious mixtures and bituminous conglomerates or more simply recycled asphalt which has been used in the construction of over 528 km of roads in Friuli Venezia Giulia and Slovenia in recent years. Ecogravel® White, on the other hand, is ideal for use in cement and soil stabilization, especially in road groundworks to prevent subsidence. In 2007, we opened the Global Blue plant for the industrialized production of Ecogravel®, which has an output of around 200,000 tons per year. This is an example of circular economy that contributes to saving natural resources and opens up new market opportunities.
