Improve your resource efficiency

Our aim is to enable a more circular economy through our remelt facilities, where we sort and remelt used and scrapped aluminium. Half of the metal we offer customers has been recycled.

Aluminium resource efficiency

Recycling scrap aluminium requires about 5 percent of the energy used to make primary aluminium. 

In Europe, about 95 percent of the aluminium used in automotive applications and commercial buildings is recycled.

Internal scrap recycling

Resource efficiency is important to you. This is why we invest in improving the productivity at our 20 casthouses, and in setting up new ones. More than 50 percent of all aluminium in our production stems from internal scrap recycling and billets of remelted aluminium provided by external suppliers.

Turning old into new

Remelting aluminium is one of our favorite processes. We handle melting and melt treatment, grain refining, casting, homogenization, billet quality and alloys. We also offer technical assistance in external supply projects.

Custom alloys

We remelt aluminium around the world. With this network, we can develop custom alloys with the specific properties that you require. And which improve your resource efficiency.

Contact us so we can begin discussing how to reduce the environmental footprint of your products.
