WHO WE ARE
CARE NOW SOLUTIONS is the international division of a Canadian corporation established in 1970 who is the premiere provider in Canada of waste processing and recycling services for aluminum smelters.
Our mission is to work with primary aluminum smelters by providing onsite resource recovery services to help address their environmental challenges.
CARE NOW SOLUTIONS stands for
CArbon, REcycling, ENvironment and Organic Waste SOLUTIONS
BENEFITS FOR THE PRIMARY ALUMINUM SMELTERS
CARE NOW SOLUTIONS assists aluminum smelters mitigate environmental waste issues through recovery, recycling and/or sale of certain by-products generated during their manufacturing process. Through the use of innovative technologies, we transform by-products into upgraded, higher value and ecologically sound products for re-use by the aluminum smelter or for resale to satisfy a broad range of commercial industrial applications.
By recycling by-products from primary aluminum production, CARE NOW SOLUTIONS also contributes to:
Reducing the need to landfill waste materials towards more sustainable primary aluminum manufacturing practices;
Provides financial savings for the primary aluminum smelters;
Yields environmental benefits for the community.

In the course of its activities, CARE NOW SOLUTIONS’s commitment toward the environment extends beyond expected compliance with local regulations and laws. Our operations include the incorporation of sound environmental practices to avoid exposing aluminum smelters, the community, our employees and our customers to unacceptable risks.

CARE NOW SOLUTIONS has developed over the years a thorough understanding and expertise of the aluminum manufacturing process. We can provide technical assistance to the aluminum smelter in different areas, including:
The purchasing of special equipment and raw materials (cathodes; pig iron; sidewalls; siphons; graphite coating; rotors and shafts; fluxes; extrusion rings; calcium silicate and fused silica machined parts; runners; etc.)
Advices to improve production efficiency
In line with our mission to help the aluminum industry address their environmental challenges, CARE NOW SOLUTIONS is heading a research project bound to substitute fossil-based carbons (calcined petroleum coke) in the anode manufacturing process with carbons from renewable resources.
We hope to conduct some field tests in the near future.
