About Alfaref, our sales team in Germany



logo Alfaref

Alfaref GmbH was founded in 1988. Due to an ever-growing repertoire of services, Alfaref quickly developed from its original core business recycling and trading zirconium-based refractory stones into one of the leading demolition and recycling companies in the glass industry in Germany and in Northern and Western Europe.

After 30 years of fruitful collaboration of mutual benefit Alfaref has been integrated into Valoref to further grow and prosper together. Both are renown leaders in their markets and are part of VALOREF GLOBAL with multiple entities and sites. 

Our range of services



comprehensive waste management alfaref

During the dismantling of your furnace by your demolisher, we work carefully according to demolition zones and monitor the different refractory qualities during recycling, in order to ensure clean separation according to waste categories and to prevent contamination of each category.

Particularly difficult and strongly infiltrated areas/zones, such as sulfates are secured as early as possible prior to commencement of works
