    Scrap

    Recycling of aluminium scarp saves about 95% of the energy required to produce metal directly from raw materials. In addition to energy saving, it reduces about 95% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to the primary aluminium production process.

    Alumetal Group is interested in cooperation with companies from scrap industry. Our suppliers are leading recycling companies on Polish and European market. Alumetal Group also imports scrap from non-European Union countries.

    The use of good practices in the process of obtaining scrap material is a key issue for us.

    Our production plants in Kęty, Gorzyce, Nowa Sól and Komarom (Hungary) purchase aluminium scrap and pure raw materials and additionally enable our partners to use optimal logistic solutions when delivering scrap.

    We accept all types of aluminium scrap, including:

    • primary (sector, offset, sheets, profiles) and post-production scrap
    • castings
    • shavings 226, 231, 233, AlSi7, AlSi11, series 7000, series 6000, series 5000
    • Al wrought scrap
    • Al can
    • Al rims scrap
    • Al dross

     

    and other metal scrap, such as:

    • copper scrap
    • titanium scrap
    • zirconium scrap

     

    The delivered scrap is thoroughly analysed in terms of quality. The analysis includes checking the chemical composition and determining the level of contamination. The scrap quality assessment process is performed by qualified specialists.
