Its high durability, low weight and easy recyclability make aluminium the material of the future. However, the production of aluminium from raw materials is one of the most energy-intensive processes. By remelting aluminium and giving it new life, Oetinger not only reduces the amount of waste that ends up in a landfill forever, but we also avoid a high demand for energy. Every year, almost 2 TWh of energy is saved that would otherwise be needed to produce aluminium from raw materials. This corresponds to about 1 % of Germany’s electricity demand. Furthermore, primary aluminium is produced outside of Germany, so recycling aluminium can reduce imports and the transport of raw materials around the world.
