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.Discover our Recycling Division
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:
The ‘Green Cookware Alloy’ is produced up to 100% with recycled aluminium waste, 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.
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.
In the Sustainability Report are all our current and future commitments, on environmental, social and economic levels. Who is it for?
On the roofs of our plants, we have installed 53,000 photovoltaic panels to produce clean energy: one of the largest solar parks in Italy with a power of 16.2 MWp. Other examples of what we do to make our business more sustainable:
of methane gas with regenerative combustion and oxy-combustion systems
with the led lighting
of our plants
of energy-intensive systems with high-efficiency motors
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.
