Established in 1963, Itelyum, with revenues in excess of €500m, is a leading European Circular Economy player, specialised in recycling complex streams of hazardous waste, leveraging distinctive chemical competences.
The Group operates 28 plants, employs more than 1,000 people, and is a technology and market leader in most of the niches it operates: waste oil regeneration, solvent purification, and industrial waste management and recycling.
With its one-stop-shop approach and solid processes and procedures, the Group targets industrial companies which need to comply with increasingly strict waste regulations and reach higher recycling rates.
Under Stirling Square’s stewardship, Itelyum has evolved from a local, family-owned company into a professionally managed, leading European player with multiple product lines across diversified streams of hazardous waste. The Group has a virtuous environmental footprint, as its activity results in 460 thousand tons fewer CO2 emissions, 1,000 tons fewer air pollutants, 14 million cubic meters of water savings and 400 hectares less of land consumption, per year.
