Markets

Aluminum and Magnesium recycling has a bright future in markets all around the globe. Recycled aluminum and magnesium provide an affordable, environmentally friendly solution in a world where demand for resources continues to grow and there is increasing awareness among manufacturers and consumers about the importance of sustainability and environmental protection. The production of recycled aluminum and magnesium requires much less energy and results in far fewer CO2 emissions.

Recycled aluminum and magnesium have vast potential. A large variety of different raw materials can be covered, whether generated within production processes, or available as postconsumer scrap. These include, for example, turnings, foils, shredded scrap, incinerator scrap, or skimmings and drosses. They can be converted into different shapes and quality grades to meet the needs of various industry segments, from lightweight automotive engineering to the production of well-designed food packaging.

REAL ALLOY is highly experienced in classifying different scrap types, creating formulas for different specifications, remelting scrap using appropriate methods and equipment, and serving the industry with alloyed aluminum and magnesium that meet its demands.


Key industries that benefit from aluminum’s excellent properties

AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORT

Aluminum and magnesium are favored in the automotive industry due to their low specific weight compared to conventional metals. Car manufacturers are increasingly opting for lightweight construction methods that use aluminum and magnesium to make their cars lighter and more fuel-efficient. More efficient cars mean reduced CO2 emissions, which is also good news for the environment.

PACKAGING AND DESIGN

Aluminum is a key material for the packaging of food, medication, and personal hygiene products. It not only provides protection and ensures freshness but also meets complex product design requirements across multiple industries.

MANUFACTURING AND ENGINEERING

In machine and plant engineering, aluminum is highly valued as a versatile construction material. Cast, forged, and extruded parts can be used to create customized, cost-effective, and technologically advanced product solutions for just about every kind of process.

CONSTRUCTION AND ARCHITECTURE

Aluminum is used in the architectural industry and for the construction of facades because it is durable and requires minimal maintenance. Aluminum is also an ideal modern building material as it lends itself to contemporary, aesthetic designs and meets today’s environmental and energy-efficiency standards.
