Aluminum recycling

Our aluminum recycling operations play a vital role in helping countries to protect resources and efficiently manage aluminum scrap and waste.

Recycling scrap aluminium requires only 5 percent of the energy used to make new aluminium.


Aluminium can be recycled over and over again with 100 percent efficiency. In other words, none of aluminium natural qualities are lost in the recycling process.


The recycled product may be the same as the original product, or it can become something completely different. Aircraft, automobiles, bicycles, boats, computers, household appliances, wire and cans are all sources for recycling.
