Aluminum resource efficiency

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

In Europe, about 95 percent of the aluminum 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 aluminum in our production stems from internal scrap recycling and billets of remelted aluminum provided by external suppliers.

Turning old into new

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