Baheti Recycling Industries Limited

Amidst geopolitical tensions leading to bans on Russian and Chinese secondary aluminium by the US and Europe, India emerges as a resilient force in the global metal trade. The Red Sea crisis and embargoes on Russian aluminium reshape the market, positioning India as the second-largest secondary aluminium manufacturer, offering stability and innovation in disrupted supply chains.
In this environment, Baheti Recycling Industries Limited stands out as a key player, showcasing India’s resilience and potential. Established in 1994, the company swiftly adapted to become a category leader in aluminium recycling. With plans for a significant expansion in production capacity, Baheti is strategically positioned to fill the gap created by the bans.
Baheti’s installation of two new furnaces, each with a capacity of 12,000 metric tonnes per year, solidifies its role as a strategic player in the international aluminium trade. With Western nations seeking reliable and sustainable sources amid geopolitical turmoil, Baheti’s expanded capacity meets this demand, making it a pivotal player in the global market.
Looking to the future, Baheti Recycling Industries acknowledges the growing importance of sustainability and carbon-related initiatives. As carbon taxes and credit trading become central to international trade, Baheti positions itself not only as a supplier but as a committed partner in environmentally conscious practices. As the company expands its footprint, Baheti remains at the forefront of reshaping the global aluminum market, driven by innovation and a dedication to sustainable solutions.
