Key facts
about aluminium

  • Abundant

    Aluminium is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust, making up 8%. After iron, it is the most widely used metal worldwide.
  • Infinitely recyclable and durable

    Aluminium retains its quality when recycled, making it almost endlessly recyclable without degradation of core properties. Approximately 75% of all the aluminium ever made is still in use. What is more, recycling aluminium consumes 5% the energy required to produce new material. Example from the beverage industry: cans made of aluminium can be ‘reborn’ in as little as 60 days – 113,200 aluminium cans recycled every minute, according to the European Aluminium.



  • Lightweight and ductile

    Aluminium is extremely ductile and weighs a third of steel or copper (2.7 g/cm3), making it ideal for the bodywork of modern vehicles, which require lightweight components for energy efficiency. The metal is easy to process and can be combined with other metals to create a large variety of alloys tailored to meet specific consumer needs.

  • Corrosion-resistant and impermeable

    While iron rusts with oxidation, aluminium oxide sticks to the original metal shielding it from corrosion. Aluminium is also highly impermeable. Even with a thickness of 0.007mm, it serves as a barrier for light, aroma, moisture, and contamination. This is among the reasons why aluminium foil and packaging have become a preferred product for the food and beverage industry.

  • Conductive and reflective

    Aluminium is an effective conductor of both heat and electricity. With conductivity twice as good as copper, it is the most commonly used material for high-voltage power lines. Aluminium is also highly reflective of both light and heat, reflecting 98 % of infra-red rays. Its conductivity – combined with abundance and cost – made aluminium a material of choice for the cable industry. Europacable forecasts a substantial surge of demand for aluminium for electric cables to power renewable energy and electric mobility, which are among the key drivers of the EU’s carbon neutrality by 2050.

  • Ready for the future economy

    Aluminium’s lightweight properties make it ideal for the bodywork of modern vehicles, which require the lightest possible components for energy efficiency. Vehicles built with aluminium can achieve a 20% reduction in energy consumption throughout their lifecycles and up to a 17% reduction in CO2 emission. What’s more, there is future potential for aluminium-ion batteries, which could be used to drive everything from cars to cities. Its ductile characteristics, durability and light weight have made aluminium a revolutionary material for construction.

Low-carbon aluminium

Low-carbon aluminium is a material that is produced with carbon footprint of less than 4 tons of CO2 equivalent (at smelter, Scope 1&2) per ton.

En+ Group continuously transforms business aligning it with 1.5 degree scenario. It has already achieved greenhouse gas emissions reduction of more than 50% compared to 1990 levels.

A new green economy requires low-carbon building blocks to support its growth in a sustainable way.

We offer offers our customers ALLOW low-carbon aluminium that supports decarbonization throughout the entire supply chain.

  • Automotive

    for a better world

    Automotive

    Aluminium-intensive vehicles have 13% lower life cycle CO₂ emissions VS steel vehicles. Low-carbon aluminium further reduces life cycle emissions by 17%. ALLOW is a reliable partner for the emerging e-mobility and related infrastructure.
  • Fresh solutions for packaging

    for a better world

    Fresh solutions for packaging

    The packaging industry is shifting to more sustainable materials and recyclable materials like aluminium. The material is favored due to its light weight, stackability, and conductivity. ALLOW adds certifiable low-carbon properties to that.
  • Construction of a new economy

    for a better world

    Construction of a new economy

    Urban centers are critical to success in lowering carbon emissions. According to independent studies low-carbon aluminium allows has substantial advantages in comparison to carbon-intensive aluminium enabling, among others, 23% carbon reductions for double-glazed partitions.
