Moving to a circular economy

Aluminium has a life cycle that few materials can match. Our move toward a circular economy involves an emphasis on recycling aluminium.

Recycling and reusing aluminium

Ore is mined and processed into aluminium. The metal is transformed into products. And when the lifetime of the product ends, it is recycled and reused in new products.

Aluminium can be recycled endlessly

Aluminium is like an energy bank. Only 5 percent of the energy required to produce primary aluminium is needed to remelt aluminium for new uses, with no loss in the quality of the metal. This makes sense environmentally and financially.

We offer sustainable materials for your products

Aluminium can be recycled infinitely, with no loss of quality. And recycling uses only a fraction of the energy that was required to produce the original metal. This makes obvious the environmental benefits of using recycled aluminium.

Sustainability is the reason why we invest in improving our casthouses and in setting up new ones. We also work with customers on designing products and solutions that facilitate easy disassembly, bringing us ever deeper into the circular economy.

Contact us today to learn more about using sustainable aluminium in your products.
