The importance of aluminium recycling: Sustainable solutions for a greener future
In line with our commitment to preserving the environment, we have established a cutting-edge aluminium scrap sorting and processing unit at our facilities located in the Industrial Area of Kilkis. This innovative unit, a substantial investment of EUR 4.6 million, enables us to harness the perpetual recyclability of aluminium, a metal that retains its mechanical properties even after multiple reuse cycles.
By doing so, we have not only demonstrated our dedication to eco-conscious practices but also significantly advanced our environmental goals. The advantages of aluminium recycling are truly remarkable, as it requires a staggering 95% less energy to produce aluminium from recycled raw materials compared to primary production methods. Moreover, increasing the recycled content during the production of aluminium systems allows us to create products with a significantly lower carbon footprint.
The importance of exceeding expectations
And we didn’t stop there. We aimed higher and set an ambitious goal with a horizon of 2025: to ensure that all our aluminium profiles for architectural use consist of at least 60% recycled aluminium.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that our dedication and hard work have paid off sooner than anticipated. We have not only achieved but surpassed our initial projections. ALUMIL proudly stands as one of the few companies worldwide to receive the prestigious "OK Recycled" certification from TÜV AUSTRIA. This certification acknowledges our commitment to sustainability and the production of billets with 60% recycled aluminium, which are used in all profiles of our architectural systems.
TÜV AUSTRIA and the "OK Recycled" certification
