The sustainable quality of aluminium products starts with their durability. Around 75% of all aluminium products manufactured to sate are still being used today. Aluminium can be recycled almost indefinitely. Its recycling rate is between 95 and 100% while still retaining its quality.
Aluminium recycling requires 5% of the energy needed to produce the material. Every tonne of recycled aluminium is equivalent to roughly 9 tonnes less CO2 emissions. In other words, it is absolutely essential to search for recyclable raw materials.
A modern, light weight, strong and easily processed material, aluminium is a good heat and energy conductor, is resistant to corrosion and weights 3 times less than steel. These properties ensure that aluminium is often used as a raw material for solutions combining low weight, meticulous attention to detail and sustainability.
Sustainable building can often be traced back to energy-efficient constructions. In the long term, however, a well thought out use of materials is an equally important factor in the bid to continue reducing our environmental footprint.
Fully committed to sustainability and long term viability as key components of the circular economy, Claerhout Aluminium continues, day after day, to specialise in the processing of aluminium as a sustainable raw material.
