The European Commission’s new Circular Economy Package is a landmark in creating a more resource-efficient economy. We believe that this package provides the basis for accelerating the transition from a linear to a true circular economy. It also allows scaling it up beyond Europe.
It paves the way for a stronger engagement of the aluminium industry to enhance recycling across its value chain, from production to the end of life product’s products.
With high end of life recycling rates, aluminium is a key contributor to a Circular Economy. Recycling aluminium uses only 5% of the energy needed for the primary production.
The level of ambition of the new package will be evaluated in the light of concrete deliveries and effective implementation.
