Overview 

 

Solid, light, durable and recyclable repeatedly, it is used in a multitude of products. Aluminum reduces the environmental footprint of vehicles by decreasing their fuel consumption, and therefore greenhouse gas emissions. It is also an important component of green buildings in urban areas where there is rapid growth, as well as an ideal packaging material for anyone concerned with minimizing waste since aluminum is entirely recyclable. And, each time it is recycled, we save 95% of the energy used to produce it originally. Products and Transformation
