Our contribution to a sustainable future

We like to work for a sustainable future in which we will be always more able to reuse and give new life to the natural resources at our disposal. And what is more sustainable than aluminium? It can be infinitely recycled and it can maintain its qualities intact even when it is remelted and reprocessed.

At Profilglass we have an entire Division for the collection, selection and recycling of scrap material. Our contribution to the circular economy starts from here, from the raw material we process.

Green alloys, aluminium has many lives

Profilglass’ Green Alloys arise from our expertise in the field of recycling and our ability to give new life to aluminium, starting from scrap.

As a result of research processes with our strategic clients, these alloys are a perfect example of circular economy and they allow us to:

  • recover raw material from post-consumer scrap
  • optimize our production cycle
  • maximize the benefits for the environment 

Green Cookware Alloy

The ‘Green Cookware Alloy’ is produced 100% with post-consumer aluminium scrap, in particular cans, and is designed for the production of cookware and kitchen utensils, but also for signage, roofing and a vast variety of other applications.

  • 100% recycled
  • 100% material from post-consumer scrap
  • 95% energy saved
  • 100% Safe
  • 100% Sustainable

Green-AL, our green alloy for the automotive industry

Green-AL is made with 75% recycled aluminium.

Highly workable and suitable for structural applications, it was developed for chassis and internal components of vehicles and is particularly performing even in components with complex shapes.

Suitable for pressing and resistant to mechanical and thermal stress, it is the right choice for lighter and safer cars.

  • 75% recycled
  • Resistant
  • Light-weight
  • Sustainable

Our Goal: increasingly sustainable

Our goal is to be increasingly sustainable in every respect: environmental but also social and economic. It is the direction in which all our investments, our research and our relationship with customers and suppliers are going.

And it is also the reason why we are always close to our community, because sustainability is also measured by the way we deal with those around us.
