ALUVIN: Building for Tomorrow
Less material, less energy, increasing recycling and recovery

As a packaging manufacturer, we constantly consider the future! Our product designs are designed to be easily recyclable. In this way, we contribute to a “circular future.

This means that the used aluminum packaging is sorted and then recycled with the end result being a fully-fledged new product. In this way, the ‘cycle’ is complete!

100 % RECYCLABLE
95 % SAVED ENERGY
75 % STILL IN USE
123000 RECYCLED EVERT MINUTE
60 DAYS RECYCLING CYCLUS
11 MILLION TONNES EVERY YEAR

Recycling & Recovery

Aluvin is also participating in efforts to jointly reduce packaging materials and increase packaging recyclability. Aluminum is an ideal material for protecting food and increasing shelf life. Therefore Aluvin is always looking for the optimal balance between optimal functionality and recyclability.

THE ALUVIN BENEFITS ARE CLEAR

ALUMINIUM IS FULLY RECYCLABLE

a-i-1

Aluminum is 100% recyclable! Retaining all its properties and quality after recycling, this recycled metal is indistinguishable from newly produced aluminium products.

a-i-3

In addition to ecological benefits, aluminium also makes economic sense! The value of the realized aluminum material is in turn used for its recycling. A successful win-win situation!

e-i-3

The energy consumption during the recycling process of aluminium is about 5% of the energy needed for the production of new aluminium products. This results in a saving of 95% energy consumption and corresponds to an equivalent saving of greenhouse gases.

a-i-2

To ensure that aluminum stays in the cycle and is available for further applications, we encourage proper collection, sorting and recycling of used products that are at the end of their useful life! In this way, we are happy to contribute to an environmentally conscious aluminum processing process!

THE AVAILABLE QUANTITY OF END-OF-LIFE ALUMINIUM SCRAP TODAY IS LIMITED

LIMITED

Due to the long life span of volume-wise dominant aluminium applications such as buildings and transport vehicles, theavailable quantity of end-of-life aluminium scrap today is limited.

75% of all aluminium ever produced since the start of its industrial production is still in use.

Because of continuous market growth, the current aluminium material demand cannot be fillled by the avail-able recycled aluminium from end-of-life scrap. The missing quantity has to be supplied by the primary aluminium industry.

In Europe, about half of the alumi-nium produced originates from recycled materials

CALLING FOR HIGH ALUMINIUM RECYCLED CONTENT

IN SPECIC APPLICATIONS WILL NOT RESULT IN A MORE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

c-i-1

For materials which are losing properties after recy-cling, stimulating demand for recycled material pro-vides an incentive to recycle. This does not work for aluminium as the limiting factor of recycling is above all the availability of scraps.

c-i-2

Calling for high recycled content in specific aluminium applications will not change that situation.

c-i-3

With the availability of recycled aluminium being limited, increasing the re-cycled content of an alumi-nium product is highly likely to result in decreasing the recycled content of another. The overall environmental benefit is therefore nil.

c-i-4

The benefit can even be negative in case of less optimized material flows resulting in increases in over-all transportation distances and in the related burden on the environment.

RECYCLING AT END OF LIFE IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO

To ensure that aluminum stays in the cycle and is available for further applications, we encourage proper collection, sorting and recycling of used products that are at the end of their useful life!

In this way, we are happy to contribute to an environmentally conscious aluminum processing process!
