Driving energy efficiency in aluminium recycling

Following a long-term partnership with Linde in the area of energy-efficient re-melting technologies, Constellium has successfully integrated Linde’s oxy-fuel technology in its recycling and melting activities.  By using lower temperatures, the innovative technology consumes significantly less energy and increases the productivity of aluminium melting plants.

It has been implemented successfully in half of the furnaces at Constellium’s plant in Neuf-Brisach, France, with the other two to be replaced by the end of 2016. Small burners using oxy-fuel technology have also enabled productivity increases in Constellium’s Technology Center, C-TEC.
