Metal Waste

Scrap metal after entering at the company, or collected from producers, are screened in relation to its composition (iron, copper, aluminum, brass, lead, ...) and treated in order to ensure compliance with the specifications of the recycling companies, including steel mills and foundries.


When the customer requires, the waste is compressed or fragmented.


If the product is electric cables, Metais Jaime Dias, S.A. uses a valuation process that is based on the separation of the metal component (copper, aluminum, aluminum / steel or other alloy) of the insulating fraction (plastic / rubber).


The metal content is treated like other non-ferrous metals being sent to recycling companies (foundries) or other landfill operators. The fraction of plastic / rubber is sent, whenever possible, to recycling companies, with a view to its recovery or transformation.
