Quimialmel Químicos e Minerais, L.D.A., located in Albergaria-a-Velha (Portugal), was the first subsidiary opened by Quimialmel Grupo in 1993. Over time it has become a mentor in the commercialization of raw materials. This has led the subsidiary to orientate its activity towards a new business sector based on the management of residues, where Quimialmel Recycling has been set up.
