Aluminum recycling is green and sustainable! Future generations will reap the benefits of aluminum recycling as we conserve both energy and natural resources. Did you know that recycled aluminum uses approximately 95% less energy than producing aluminum from raw materials? It also eliminates 97% of the greenhouse gas emissions produced in the primary production process. Recycling one ton of aluminum saves nine tons of CO2 emissions and four tons of bauxite – the raw material from which aluminum is made. Over 70% of all the metal bought and sold by Beck Aluminum is recycled aluminum, and we are proud of the positive difference we make in partnership with our customers.
