Novelis successfully cast the first production-sized ingot – almost 10 meters long – at its new aluminum recycling and casting center in Nachterstedt, Germany.
Located adjacent to the company’s existing aluminum rolling mill, the new plant will produce up to 400,000 metric tons of aluminum sheet ingot from recycled material annually, and is projected to be the world’s largest aluminum recycling center. The new center will support the company’s drive to significantly expand its recycling activity in Europe. The center will process cans as well as numerous other forms of aluminum scrap from across continental Europe.
