Australian Waste & Recycling Expo
Roberto Antichi, President of Indinvest LT, says: "For us, the concept of collaboration is very important when following a joint goal. We started this project together, are using synergies, and can clearly see that it has paid off."
It’s a collaboration that has led to the production of excellent and greener aluminum product: "Two years ago, we created a billet called Creal, containing 85% post-consumer aluminum with mechanical and, above all, surface results comparable to those of primary aluminum created by aluminium manufacturers from bauxite," Antichi says.
Indinvest was able to achieve this incredible result thanks to the selection of TOMRA machines. Otherwise, according to company representatives, the recycled aluminum content could have been as low as 35-40%.
Antichi continues: "Recent years have shown us that our recycled aluminum is well received by the market and is increasingly asked for. Especially now, with the 2030 Paris Treaty mandating a reduction in CO2 consumption, all customers are pushing the production of profiles with recycled material."
Aluminium: a growing market
Concludes del Prete: "One of the few positive notes of recent years is the growing trend in the aluminum sector. Thanks to the immense availability of recycled material and thanks to its mechanical properties (flexible, resistant, etc.) it will be the material of the future together with wood and glass. That's why we are focusing on recycled aluminum. Many companies approach us because they know the technologies we use, and they know they can count on a recycled product of absolute quality. We already resell our aluminium to companies working in the most important sectors that use this material: automotive and construction. But in the future we reserve the right to explore the rest of the market as well. We have the best team and equipment!"
