The compromise of ALUCOAT: recyclability and sustainability

ALUCOAT, is an expert in coating aluminium coils between 20 and 500 microns thick. ALUCOAT supplies materials certified as “safe materials” to a wide range of sectors such as food, pharmacy, insulation, construction, among others and in its daily activity contributes to global sustainability, recycling all the aluminium waste generated when coating.

Aluminium is one of the materials presents in the earth’s layer that is 100% recyclable, it can be recycled infinitely many times and it can be re-used without losing its properties with a 95% of recovery rate. As a curious fact, the 75% of all the aluminium produced in the World since 1950’s it still in use*. Another advantage related with recycling is that it’s avoid the emission of an average of 90 million of CO2 to the atmosphere per year*. Regarding the energy required in its initial production to obtain primary aluminium, giving aluminium a new life means an energy saving of 95%.

For these reasons, ALUCOAT, committed to sustainability and the future, recycles 100% of all the waste generated during its productive process of coating. Moreover, more than 60% of our coated aluminium comes from recycled aluminium, minimizing the extraction of new resources and promoting the circular economy.

ALUCOAT joins ASI, the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative

The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative, ASI, is a certification and standard-setting organization that recognizes and promotes responsible aluminium production, sourcing and stewardship. This global initiative was created to support members of responsible supply chains and is the result of producers, users and stakeholders coming together to create an agreement on “responsible aluminium”. This enables the entire aluminium industry to demonstrate accountability and provide independent, credible and verifiable evidence of its environmental, social and management performance.

Certification according to ASI Performance Standard Certification is based on 11 principles and 62 criteria including production management, business integrity, transparency, materials stewardship, environmental care, CO2 emissions or labor rights.

ALUCOAT, specialist in coated aluminium coils between 20 and 500 microns, has joined this initiative as a member since June, being this the beginning of the path towards obtaining the certification ASI Performance Standard Certification in the next two years to demonstrate the responsible aluminium production, supply and management.
