Recycled aluminium RE-local

An infinite cycle

1 COLLECTION

Aluminium collected both from third parties and from our own factories

2 CLASSIFCATION

It is separated according to its alloy to preserve its mechanical characteristics

3 FOUNDRY

After organizing them in packages, they are melted at 750ºC to create a new billet of aluminium

4 EXTRUSION

With the billet obtained in the foundry, new aluminium profiles are extruded

5 COMMERCIALISATION

These profiles are used by different types of industries for the production

6 USE

The final products are used. Then, the recyling process can start again

Recycling

Recycling gives aluminium an infinite life and reduces CO2 emissions

Aluminium has the exceptional ability to be 100% recyclable unlimited times without losing its quality or properties. EXLABESA’s recycling process ranges from collection and remelting to the extrusion of new profiles. In this way, we promote a cleaner, more efficient and sustainable industry, contributing to the achievement of the objectives of the European Green Pact.

We operate 4 state-of-the-art recycling centres

Our foundries produce more than 50 000 tonnes of recycled billet per year, the equivalent of the aluminium needed to equip more than 300 000 average homes, almost three times the number of new construction projects approved in Spain*. These unique capabilities allow us to take on any industrial challenge and meet the most demanding projects.

*108 895 new building licenses in 2022 according to data from the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda.

Recycled aluminium

Aluminium is a key material for building decarbonisation

The building sector is responsible for over 35% of greenhouse gas emissions. Recycled aluminum is a key material for the future of construction as it not only eliminates the need to extract new minerals but also significantly reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

RE-local recycled aluminium is incorporated into our production process to manufacture door,
window and enclosure profiles. In this way, we contribute to the building
value chain with sustainable solutions that allow us to respond to the
growing market demands and facilitate obtaining the most demanding
environmental certifications such as LEED, BREEAM or VERDE.
