About us

We love scrap!

Why?

At Novelis, the focus is on sustainability and recycling. For example, to be able to produce new aluminium from old beverage cans, we need as many cans as possible that can be fed back into the cycle. Therefore, aluminium scrap is of great importance to us. Because this scrap is not conventional waste, but a valuable raw material, since aluminium can be recycled infinitely without loss of quality.

Novelis is a leading producer of flat-rolled aluminium and the world's largest recycler of aluminium. In Nachterstedt, Saxony-Anhalt, we operate the largest and technologically most advanced aluminium recycling plant in Europe. Up to 400,000 tons of aluminium scrap can be processed here annually.
We encounter aluminium in our daily lives more often than we think, for example in beverage and cosmetic cans, car body parts such as hoods and doors, fuselage and wing structural components for aircraft, aluminium facades or aluminium coffee capsules.

Our Vision

We want to become the leading provider for low-carbon, sustainable aluminium.

Die Novelis Vision
And keep running in circles - in the best sense. Aluminium has a unique property: it can be recycled infinitely. Together with our partners, we want to achieve a full circular economy. This allows us to return more resources to the production cycle and save waste. In doing so, we hope to create a more sustainable future and a change from how we live today.

Novelis is the world biggest recycler of Aluminium.

We focus on returning aluminium that has already been in the loop back into the system. In this way, we do our part to ensure that the beverage can, for example, is back on the supermarket shelf within 60 days. We also thoroughly sort the supposed scrap and ensure that the materials can be reused. Recycling is also a real energy saver: Compared to the production of primary aluminium, recycling requires 95% less energy.
