We presently have internal projects dealing with, amongst other things,

As compared to the production of primary aluminium, the remelting of secondary aluminium only requires 5 % of the energy. Besides, our engineers decreased the specific energy consumption for each ton of aluminium we cast in 2014 to less than 70 % as compared to the year 2011. We are planning to save even more energy, and this is one of the main areas of focus in our production processes.
