Aluminium is the most recyclable of all materials. Being ‘Perfect Eco-Metal’, a very little amount of aluminium is lost in the recycling process and that is without compromising its quality. Recycled aluminium generally termed as ‘secondary’ aluminium, while aluminium produced from raw-material is named as ‘virgin’ or ‘primary’ aluminium.
Aluminium recycling uses only about 5 percent of the energy used to create a comparable amount of primary aluminium and also emits only somewhat 5 percent of the greenhouse gases. It is for these reasons that approximately 75 percent of the aluminium ever produced is still in use today.
