Aluminium is valuable at every stage of its life cycle, and can be recycled endlessly while maintaining its material properties. Recycling aluminium requires only 5% of the energy used to produce primary metal, and emits 95% fewer GHG emissions. Recycling also protects resources and reduces waste.
Maximizing our use of recycled material is a core strategy for Constellium. We use a significant share of recycled aluminium in the manufacturing of our products. We already have significant recycling capacity and plan to substantially expand our recycling capacity in the coming years.
In addition to recycling aluminium, we pursue initiatives with our partners to increase global recycling rates.
