The launch of the UK Battery Strategy is a landmark moment in our journey towards a sustainable future. As a UK-based company with extensive non-ferrous metals recycling operations in the emerging markets of Africa, Romco hails the UK Government’s ambitions in this sector.
Romco's journey exemplifies how industrial enterprises can significantly contribute to environmental sustainability. By intertwining operational excellence with environmental stewardship, Romco is not only redefining its corporate identity but is also making a compelling case for the adoption of recycling practices within the broader industrial sector. Through PureCycle™, Romco is not merely recycling aluminium; it's recycling hope for a sustainable industrial future.
TXF Africa 2023 kicked off as a great opportunity to end the year on a high and start 2024 with new connections and crucial business intelligence insights. This in-person conference had something for everyone and maximised networking at every possible turn; which Romco was proud to be a part of.
The electric vehicle (EV) industry is undergoing a remarkable transformation, and at the heart of this revolution is the crucial role played by sustainable materials. One such material making waves in the EV sector is aluminium, and leading the charge in supplying eco-friendly aluminium from emerging markets is Romco.
Romco Group is expanding its recycling activities from aluminium into copper at its facility in Lagos, Nigeria, the company said on Tuesday March 28, to help with the global push for a zero-emissions “circular economy.”
We’d like to congratulate Team 4 — Samir Soares, Stephen Marr, Mina Kazemi, and Salim Ubale for winning the SusHy CDT Stakeholder Challenge!
Romco Group Ltd, a leader in sustainable commodity production in Africa, announces the expansion of its product range to include premium copper ingots.
As the world faces a climate crisis amidst a shortfall of both energy supplies and critical metals, difficult decisions are being made to meet growing supply gaps without risking new dependencies on unsustainable producers or compromised geopolitical actors. A problem for some; especially in light of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The ‘Stakeholder Challenge’ begins this week — a two-week research challenge issued to PhD students from the Sustainable Hydrogen Centre for Doctoral Training (SusHy CDT) in collaboration with The Community Revolution and Romco to develop a zero-carbon green hydrogen solution for the sustainable recycling of non-ferrous metals.
Raymond Onovwigun can hardly be accused of green-washing. Eight years after setting up Romco Group, the company says it is the third largest aluminium recycler in Nigeria, melting tin cans, old car engines and other discarded debris into ingots that it sells to international motor and telecoms companies.
Raymond Onovwigun, Romco Group CEO & Founder, argues in AlCircle's "Innovators and Trendsetters of the Aluminium Industry" Report 2022, that expanding the market share of secondary aluminium is in the best interests of the globe’s green transition.
Congratulations to Romco CEO & Founder Raymond Onovwigun for winning the Rising Star Award at the National Recycling Awards 2022!
Romco Group is proud to announce they have been selected by HolonIQ as part of their Europe Climate Tech 200 – an annual list comprising of Europe’s most promising Climate Tech startups.
the EU’s Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism will tax importers €75 per mt of CO2 (the product’s embedded carbon emissions). With regards to aluminium, this equates to 1,350€ per ton of primary, whether imported or produced in the EU. The value of this tax is projected to increase to €100 per mt of CO2 by 2030. How are you prepared?
The global need to decarbonise energy production, particularly for the metals production industry, is now impossible to ignore. In terms of limiting global warming to 1.5C, while progress has been made, pledges and subsequent efforts fall significantly short of achieving the ambitious climate agreement. It’s clear that fulfilling the Paris Climate Agreement requires equally ambitious solutions. One key sector to consider is the energy industry - particularly as it relates to metals production - as energy is the primary driver for the carbon footprint of metal production.
Last week, Romco CEO & Founder, Raymond Onovwigun, was invited to speak at both COP27, in Sharm El-Sheikh, for a ThinkIn titled "Living in a heating world: lessons from the global South", hosted by Tortoise Media in conjunction with the ONE Campaign, and TXF Geneva 2022: Commodity Finance & Natural Resources Conference as a part of a panel discussing "Base metals: The good, the bad, and the lack of investment".
Increased energy prices for the production of aluminium, a material with notoriously high power consumption, are reducing profit margins to a razor thin line for a range of primary aluminium producers, if not already sending some smelters into the red. The stage is set for lower-cost low-energy substitutes, like secondary aluminium and hydro-powered aluminium smelters, to help fill the gaps in the market.
Keith Wildie, head of trading at Romco Group, joins BNN Bloomberg to explain why a ban by the London Metal Exchange on all metals from Russia could have “a catastrophic impact” on prices, even if physical metal continues to flow globally.
Selected from a global pool of over 200 applicants, Romco Group has been nominated as a finalist for the 2022 FT/IFC Awards in the Climate Solutions category.
