The future
starts now

“If we could build an economy that would use things rather than use them up, we could build a future.”– Ellen MacArthur

Not just a word,
but our daily mission
Sustainability

With our sustainably produced, infinitely recyclable aluminium tubes each year, we’re doing our bit to protect the environment and preserve the beauty of our planet.

We strictly comply with legal requirements and continually invest in optimising our business processes. A plan for making ongoing improvements is firmly anchored in our corporate strategy.

Six facts about aluminium

Aluminium is a multifunctional packaging material that offers maximum protection and security for your products. It is also extremely convenient and resource-efficient.

75% of all aluminium produced to date is still in use.
Europe already recycles 60% of its aluminium.
Recycling uses 95% less energy than primary aluminium production.
Innovations can reduce the weight of aluminium to preserve both resources and the environment.
Aluminium provides sustainable support for the circular economy.
Aluminium is a durable material that can be infinitely recycled without any loss in quality.

Aluminium is the sustainable
packaging of the future

Aluminium packaging already exceeds
the EU’s recycling targets for 2025.

Stemming the tide of waste
Humans produce tonnes of plastic waste every year – and the volumes keep increasing. In response to this alarming situation, the EU introduced Directive (EU) 2018/852 to toughen and raise the targets for using recyclable packaging materials. The directive calls for the use of recyclable materials and support for a sustainable circular economy.

Aluminium packaging already exceeds the EU’s recycling targets – and with over 220 aluminium recycling plants in Europe, we’re well-equipped for things to improve even further.

Aluminium is a recycling champion
Current recycling rates speak for themselves. Aluminium already tops the list, and the recycling options for this material are far from being exhausted. Meanwhile, plastics recycling often suffers from a lack of resources and methods, and the sheer variety of plastics in use makes it hard to sort them properly. No industrial-scale solution exists for laminate tubes. They simply cannot be recycled.

Aluminium tubes are infinitely recyclable – with no loss in quality.

Taking responsibility together
By choosing our aluminium tubes, you too can help drive positive change in waste management.

Leading the field
in the circular economy

A brilliant material for the future
Aluminium is a superb material that can be recycled again and again, without any loss in quality. Recycled aluminium can be turned into new packaging or used in the car industry, construction sector, or high-tech fields. Aluminium is a winning choice because…

  • it offers excellent barrier properties
  • it is lightweight and highly robust
  • it can help reduce energy consumption

Retaining value that lasts
75% of all the aluminium ever made is still in use. Aluminium is therefore helping to drive the trend towards a resource-efficient circular economy.

Recycling uses 95% less energy than primary aluminium production.
