Flanders Metals Valley (FMV) is a bottom-up initiative launched by companies and institutions active in the metallurgical sector in Flanders. The organisation consists of a vast mix of people in the practice of the metals industry combined with universities and knowledge centres who, while being at the core of ground-breaking research for the future, also want to be relevant to the industry’s challenges of today.

Flanders Metals Valley brings all of these voices together within 1 organisation where ideas are shared and new initiatives are launched within 3 core working groups: Innovation, Communication and Education.

The main focus of Flanders Metals Valley lies on creating a climate-neutral circular metals industry in Flanders, innovative and future-oriented, recognised as an essential, competitive pillar of the Flemish industry.

A climate-neutral circular metals industry is not an idea from a distant future! It is already in the making here in Flanders where uniquely, on a relatively limited area, all players from this circular chain are very closely packed together. This ranging from metal producing companies to metal processing companies, the manufacturers of products and the companies active in collecting, recycling and remanufacturing scrap who make sure these metals are once again used and are kept in the circle.

If you are a part of this circular chain or you want to be, get in touch with us. Circularity has no borders, therefore Flanders Metals Valley is open for companies and institutions inside and outside of Flanders, as long as they are acting with the same or complimentary goals.
