Aluminium manufacturing with recycled scrap

Thursday 12th September 2024

Theatre :  Sustainability and Circular Economy 


The UK has an unprecedented opportunity to transition from a prime-aluminium-dominated industry to one centred on high-level post-consumer scrap recycling. This shift will support the expanding use of aluminium in transport applications, reducing emissions, and packaging applications, lowering environmental impact. Recycling end-of-life secondary materials is crucial for the global aluminium sector to achieve its sustainability targets.

This session will explore how the UK can lead this revolution by investing in new scrap processing and remelt facilities, utilising the large quantities of end-of-life secondary material produced annually.

Join us to understand how recycled scrap is transforming aluminium manufacturing and how you can leverage these advancements for a greener, more efficient operation.
