What are the benefits of Aluminium recycling?

Undeniably the most significant benefit of recycling aluminium is it can be recycled an infinite number of times, making it the ideal metal for meeting the demand in industries and those wanting to preserve the wider environment. Aluminium is wholly recyclable, with all the metal being melted down and reformed infinitely without losing any of its material strengths or qualities.  Since the production of aluminium in the 19th century, it’s believed that around three-quarters of all material produced is still in use today!

Aluminium recycling is also energy efficient.

Recycling just a tonne of aluminium saves up to nine tons of CO2 emissions that would otherwise be released into the wider environment.  Also, recycling aluminium uses considerably less energy than is required to manufacture primary aluminium.  Recycling existing aluminium uses only 5% of its power to produce primary aluminium.  Somewhat shockingly, that’s the greenhouse gas equivalent of removing almost one million vehicles off the road for an entire year!

By recycling aluminium, we can also help avoid the need to mine new Bauxite ore used to produce new aluminium.

In the UK, eight billion aluminium cans are sold every year containing fizzy drinks, fruit juices and food cupboard products.  If you bear in mind that all eight billion of these cans could be recycled over and over, you can quickly acknowledge just how much energy and raw materials can be saved in the process. The aluminium recycling process for a beverage can take just two months, from recycled to ready for sale in shops and supermarkets.  Each aluminium can be recycled seven or eight times throughout a single year, saving enough energy to manufacture 160 new aluminium cans.

The impressive structural integrity of aluminium

Aluminium regardless of how many times it is recycled – means it is a highly suitable material for high-end applications.  For example, it’s possible to recycle aluminium previously used as an aesthetically pleasing façade on a building for use in a vehicle engine with absolutely no decline in the material’s quality.

At Reclamet, we now recycle thousands of tonnes of aluminium, helping to limit the amount of CO2 entering our atmosphere.  At our recycling centre, we offer aluminium scrap prices to all customers needing to get rid of their aluminium and earn some money in the process!

Brought my car in to be scrapped and was offered a fair price, much more than i expected to get for my mini. The owner of the business - Stuart was very helpful along with the girls in the office and the weighbridge. Would happily recommend to friends and family.

Honest, great communication, great prices. Friendly. I had a damaged catalytic converter from an attempted theft and Reclamet was the only company that had adequate communication and was not dodgy as most of the other scrap metal dealers seemed. So it was well-worth my drive from central London to Kent to get the £784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
