What is “Recycling”?

What is Recycling?

Recycling is a process by which waste materials are collected, sorted and processed into raw materials which are then used to create new products. Aluminium cans are some of the most recyclable forms of packaging in this day and age. Once recycled, the cans return to the retailer’s shelf as a new filled cans.

Energy Saving

Aluminium cans can be recycled many times and still not lose its original quality even after recycling. Recycling one aluminium produces enough energy to manufacture another 20 aluminium cans.

Recycling Process

Aluminium can recycling involves:

  • Collecting the used beverage cans (UBC)
  • Crushing or compacting them into bales
  • Smelting the aluminium into secondary ingots
  • Adding alloy & other raw materials into the ingots
  • Converting the ingots into rolling slabs
  • Transforming the slabs into aluminium cans that are ready for use
