Our heart beats
for recycling


Down to the last detail

Craenhals Metal Terminal is a Belgian family company in heart and soul, active at various locations in Western Europe. Its core business is recycling usable components left over from the shredder or waste incinerator. We use state-of-the-art flotation technologies to give lead, copper, zinc and aluminium a new lease of life. We also give glass, rubber and plastics a new chance as secondary feedstock or combustible fraction.

Individual expertise, collective strength

Our group consists of specialised companies, each employing state-of-the-art recycling techniques to responsibly reclaim discarded materials. Thanks to complimentary expertise, our group can provide a wide range of recycling services and supply renewed raw materials tailored to our customers’ specifications

At the start of the cycle

Waste is not the end for us, but the start of an infinite cycle. Throughout Europe we obtain the ingredients for our core activities.

Raw materials, fine processing

Thanks to our extensive experience and innovative installations, we can ecologically process these materials into new raw materials that are in demand all over the world.

Passion and innovation

Inspired by the notion of a circular economy, we consistently invest in innovation. This makes it possible to recycle and prepare even more materials for reuse. This idea is ingrained in each one of us, in each CMT employee. So it is no coincidence that our commitment and passion for ‘circular recycling’ translates into the highest possible ISO certifications and international trading standards, such as AQSIQ. We are also a member of organisations such as BIR, EURIC, ISRI, MRAI etc.

We are proud of our recycling skills

Craenhals Metal Terminal is ambitious. We want to be the frontrunner in a new way of thinking, in which ecology and economy go hand in hand. In which innovations and revolutionary technologies make a real difference. In which our earth's valuable and natural resources become part of a continuous circular economy. In short, one in which generations to come also have a future.

There are no job openings at present, but that doesn't mean we don't have room for good people. In fact, we always do. So if you're convinced you will fit right in and your capabilities will be of added value to us, do send us your contact details and CV.
