THE MINISTER OF SCIENCE AND INNOVATION HAS VISITED THE IBERFOIL FACTORY IN SABIÑÁNIGO
During her visit she was accompanied by the president of Iberfoil and Grupo Aliberico, Clemente González Soler, and other regional and local authorities.
The company is developing the Iberfoil Integra project, a new plant that will produce 30,000 tons of green aluminium coils per year and will be a benchmark for the Circular Economy in Spain.
The Minister of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, visited the Iberfoil factory in Sabiñánigo (Huesca), the only aluminium thin foil rolling company in Spain, specialised in very thin thicknesses, for the packaging, pharmaceutical and food sectors.
During her visit to Iberfoil’s facilities, the minister was accompanied by the president of Iberfoil Aragon and president of Grupo Aliberico, Clemente González Soler, along with the mayoress of Sabiñánigo, Berta Fernández; the president of the Huesca Provincial Council, Miguel Gracia; the government delegate in Aragón, Rosa María Serrano; the councillor for Citizenship and Social Rights of the Government of Aragón, María Victoria Brito, and other local authorities.
Grupo Aliberico acquired in 2014 the Iberfoil factory in Sabiñánigo, and made significant investments between 2017 and 2019 to equip it with a new cold rolling mill.
A new project is currently in progress, called Iberfoil Integra, which consists of a new production plant on an adjacent 45,000 square metre site. This building will be equipped with five aluminium recycling furnaces and two continuous casting lines that will produce 30,000 tons of green aluminium coils per year.
Iberfoil Integra will start test production in September 2023 and will be an industrial benchmark in the field of the Circular Economy in Spain, as it will recycle all the scrap generated by the 17 plants of the Grupo Aliberico in Spain, in addition to those from its own customers. This will enable it to achieve its autonomy in its raw material supply sources.
