Our project

We, Grupo Lopez Soriano, are an aragonese family-owned business with innovative vocation. It all started with a small (30 m2) scrap yard. Today, our group has over 40 facilities spread mainly across Aragon. To talk about Lopez Soriano now is to talk about scrap, oxicut, automobile... but above all you talk about recycling, waste management environment and recovery.

Industrias López Soriano S.L. was founded in 1974 as a scrap yard, with the basic objective of collection, sorting and processing of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Its activity has been largely linked to: dismantling of industrial plants, scrap and metal recovering from light and heavy industry (automotive industry, white goods, brown goods, boilermaking, structures, oxy-cut, electric factories, etc) and scrap imports from different countries.

We are authorized and equipped to treat all kinds of residues such as: end-of-life vehicles, waste electrical and electronic equipment, end-of-life tires, etc. The high yield by-products obtained, are ready to be introduced again in the industrial chain, reducing energetic and economic costs.

ILSSA meets all its customers ́ needs through its state-of- the-art installations and cutting-edge technology machinery (balers, shears, hydraulic presses, crawler excavators with multi-tine grapples or magnets...)

ILSSA recycles all kinds of electric and electronic white goods such as fridges, freezers and air conditioners.


Since its origins, ILSSA has been engaged in scrap purchasing, sales and treatment.

Today, ILSSA operates in two different locations. The original yard is located in Carretera de Castellon, Zaragoza, while the new one is at the PTR. It is equipped with the most up-to-date technology, including a Shredder.

Along with two large hydraulic scrap shears we are able to handle every type of ferrous and non ferrous scrap. Thanks to several materials sorting technologies we are capable of obtaining high levels of separation, ensuring high customer satisfaction.

These infrastructures make company a market leader in its sector in our region.


ILSSA, through its trademark Valorfrio, is the largest Spanish company in terms of volume of white goods treated. More specifically it treats cold-producing appliances such as: refrigerators, freezers and cabinets.

Thanks to the state of the art technology installed, we are able to degasify the refrigerator in two different stages, obtaining oil and CFC/pentane/butane gasses and preventing harmful substances to evaporate into de atmosphere.Once cables, motors and compressors are removed, this recycling system separates the refrigerator into ferrous and non ferrous metals, plastic and PUR pellets, achieving a comprehensive management of these goods with high level of recyclability.


ILSSA as an Authorized Treatment Facility (ATF) for End of Life Vehicles (ELV) maintains an Integrated Environmental Authorization.

ILSSA provides scrap vehicles collection services. Once the vehicle is received at our facility at Castellon Road, we proceed to cancel its registration at the Department of Transportation and subsequently depollute it, removing all hazardous parts in accordance with current legislation.

Once the vehicle has been depolluted it will be either dismantled and its part sold on the used car parts market or crushed and the metal recycled. Our commitment to the environment continues to be one of our main objectives.


ILSSA is a hazardous waste management facility and so it is authorized to manage used batteries.

ILSSA places its own containers in appropriated locations on the producers’ premises so the batteries can be properly stored. Once the container is full, ILSSA uses its own equipment to remove it and transport it to the final waste manager. All of which in accordance and compliance with the current legislation in force at any given time.
