ALUMINIUM IS GREEN
The responsible use of resources forms part of our everyday routine. We recycle all of the aluminium scrap produced by the apt Group at our remelting plant in Monheim, which has a capacity of 20,000 tonnes of aluminium billets a year. We use these billets to produce high quality extrusion profiles. The production of billets from recycled aluminium requires only 5% of the energy that would be needed to make the billets using aluminium made from raw materials. And without any loss in quality because the recycled material is in no way inferior to primary aluminium.
Even residual products, such as dross from the remelting plant or residues produced during the water treatment at the anodising plants, are recycled. This enables us to combine environmental awareness with optimum cost effectiveness.
