Closed-loop recycling of aluminum was commonplace well before the idea of recycling became widespread. That’s because used aluminum parts, aluminum alloys, and aluminum scrap from manufacturing are too valuable to go to waste: disused or obsolete parts made from the metal are ideally suited for reprocessing and reforming. This is one of the biggest advantages of aluminum – and part of the reason why it is used so heavily in different industrial applications.
It is significantly more efficient to recycle aluminum than to produce it from virgin material. Remelting uses only around 5% of the energy that would otherwise be used for primary production. Furthermore, the output loses none of its quality in the recycling process. The benefits of this are twofold: first of all, the metal retains its value; secondly, it can be reprocessed any number of times.
Recycling aluminum and magnesium is a practice that safeguards and supports the supply of raw materials. Saving both resources and energy, it is therefore the logical choice for environmentally conscious customers seeking greater efficiency in metal supply.
Decades of experience, state-of-the-art technologies for treatment, melting, and air purification, and an ongoing commitment to the development of new, environmentally friendly processes – all of this provides us with a platform to deliver the best possible recycling rates using minimal energy and additives.
