Valoref is the leading recycler of refractory materials in Europe, and is currently developing three additional activities for its customers:
for the glass, chemicals, steel-making, petrochemicals and incineration industries, Valoref offers total management of refractory materials originating from furnace repairs (total or partial);for Refractory specialists and the ceramics industry, Valoref produces a whole range of secondary raw materials that can be recovered;finally, for customers of refractory products, Valoref produces and markets manufactured products.
Our dual objective is to meet the needs of companies, and at the same time contribute to environemental protection, within the strict framework of current legislation.
Valoref was found in 1987 and became an "S.A" company in 1990. Today its clientele includes major international groups, comprising most of the european glass-makers and virtually all the major refractory specialists.Over the years, Valoref has developed various patented processes and exclusive techniques, as well as a broad range of specific products and registered trade marks.
The company has worked hard to offer customers the best guarantees possible: ISO 9002 standard, approval for the classified facilities, specific environmental insurance, compliance with local legislation, etc...
To optimise performance, Valoref has built an approved facility for processing and transit of refractory products, the only one of its kind in Europe, located on the river port of Bollène in France.
Thanks to its presence in Germany (Alfaref), Italy and Spain, Valoref has gradually extended its field of operations throughout Europe. Today it is developing activities in North and South America and North Africa.
