Quality Assurance

As you know, Valorsul excels in rigor and quality.

The Valorsul aggregate is a CE marked product. It complies with European legislation and harmonized European standards. The material was studied, with excellent results, and approved by the National Civil Engineering Laboratory, which prepared its application document. This material is innovative in Portugal but is commonly used in other northern European countries such as the United Kingdom, Norway and Germany.


Environmental Benefits

The artificial aggregate of Valorsul, comes from the valorization of waste, reason why it fits in the 5% of recycled materials that obligatorily all the public works must incorporate. In addition, it is a perfect example of circular economy, sparing the use of natural aggregates, so often extracted from quarries and rivers.


Do not miss this opportunity to save on the account of your work and the resources of your planet.

All technical specifications, including certificate of compliance, application document and declaration of performance, are available below. Our technicians are also available to clarify all questions and conditions of the campaign through the number 808 200 135 or by email to joana.xavier@valorsul.pt.

How to lift the product and transport

We are waiting for you on the scheduled date at ITVE - Treatment and Valorisation of Slag Installation, located in the perimeter of the Landfill of Mato da Cruz, 2615-625 Calhandriz - Vila Franca de Xira.

The product pick-up time is from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 12:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on weekdays.

The transportation, of the responsibility of the customer, must be carried out by a vehicle that fulfills the following characteristics:

  • • Open box for bulk cargo;
    • Clean box, so as not to change the quality of the aggregate;
    • Maximum height of the top 3.70m;
    • Removable cover to ensure dust-free transport.

The cargo will be made using Valorsul's resources. The shipment of the product will be preceded by weighing on the scale, in order to calculate the net weight to determine the value of the debt to be made by Valorsul.

Slag Application on Roads

Slag Application on Roads

Aggregate consumption in Western countries is very high and has a significant role in the exploitation of non-renewable natural resources in these countries. The annual production of aggregates in the European Union is 2,500 million tonnes.

It is not environmentally sustainable to exploit quarries, often located in protected areas, and to extract alluvial aggregates, when alternative materials are available.

The aggregate 0 / 31.5 - artificial aggregate from urban waste incineration slag - is a construction product, with CE Marking, produced by Valorsul whose intended use is road construction, namely for non-attached base layers and sub-base of road pavements.

This product has characteristics similar to those of natural aggregates crushed of extensive granulometry, being a reliable alternative to these aggregates.

The use of this new construction product helps save valuable space in landfills and extend the life of these facilities, with environmental and financial gains for the populations.
