Our way to sustainability
Environment and Circular Economy
The activity of the foundry highlights in a good part of its processes the “circularity” of the economy, given in good part by the recycling industry and all the supply chains involved.
A large part of the raw material used in our production processes comes, in fact, from ferrous scrap and the reuse of waste from the same processes.
We have been applying for years a continuous, preventive and integrated environmental strategy toward processes, products and services in order to increase the overall efficiency and reduce the impact on ‘environment and man in view of circular economy.
77% of the metal feedstock comes from recovered materials
95% of waste generated becomes raw material in other industrial processes
Our way to sustainability
Through this document, we will tell you about the goals, progress and challenges we face every day to make our journey more and more sustainable.
Our Sustainability Report is part of an increasingly strategic and articulated path, which aims at the progressive integration of ESG issues in every aspect of the company’s business: from policies in favor of people to the expansion of activities related to environmental sustainability to achieve ever more ambitious goals, with a view to sharing and transparency towards all stakeholders such as collaborators, shareholders, customers, suppliers and communities in all the territories in which it operates.
Fonderia di Torbole is always active in the goal of increasingly reducing environmental impacts. This can be appreciated in the data relating to the consumption of raw materials, the percentages of reuse of recycled material, the careful production of waste materials and their reuse and/or disposal, emissions into the atmosphere, water resources.
For Fonderia di Torbole people represent a real asset, each of them with their own knowledge and skills represents the success of our company, and this is why we thank them.
We believe in the importance of creating a stimulating work environment with opportunities for professional and personal growth through a structured and continuous training activity.

The production process
is organized with appropriate computerized control stations that measure, visualize and adjust all the variables and all the main technological parameters guaranteeing quality and repeatability without wasting time and materials.
Our facilities, which are continuously updated according to technical developments and in compliance with current environmental and safety regulations, guarantee not only product quality but also environmental protection and safety in the workplace.
The mechanical machining and coating department, complementary activities for the completion of our production process, take place in a large, technologically advanced facility next to the foundry
CORALIS is an European eco-sustainable project
CORALIS is an eco-sustainable project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement NO. 958337, involving 29 companies in 7 different countries of the European Union.
The objective is to mitigate the environmental impact by reducing pollution and CO2 emissions and increasing the sustainable resources and energy efficiency through the implementation of a new long term industrial symbiosis, making the actors in the value chains interact with each other and combining strategies through technological, managerial and economic factors.
Fonderia di Torbole actively joins the consortium as a lighthouse case through two projects aimed to maximize the reuse of resources normally considered as scrap:
– Recovery of metals from powders coming from hot blasting machines filters
– Use of Biochar as a partial substitute for coke carbon
