The slag was originally sent to Portugal from Switzerland to be recycled. However the facilities were not available and 30'000 tons of hazardous waste were dumping in the open unprotected since 1987. The waste is endangering the environmental of the Portuguese City Setubal.Already several times Portugal demanded the Swiss authorities to provide for the return of the hazardous waste which Refonda, a subsidiary of Alu-Suisse, has transported illegaly to Portugal. But the Federal Office for the Environment fails to act and Refonda shirks its responsibility. Greenpeace submit accusaition against both of them.
