Aluminium can be melted down and reused again and again, without losing any of its valuable and sustainable properties. The prospects for effective recycling are thus ideal. A very high share – over 90 per cent – of all aluminium extrusion-based products used in the construction, design and transportation industries are returned for recycling. The high value and easy recyclability of the material explain why the share is already so high. Recycling represents a 95 per cent energy saving compared with primary production.
