Alcan recycles aluminum cans at Neuf-Brisach

Alcan will invest US$7 million in its Specialty Sheet Alcan Rhenalu facility at Neuf-Brisach, France to recycle used beverage cans (UBC) made from aluminum. The new capacity is scheduled to come on stream by the beginning of 2008.

The investment will include the installation of an additional remelting furnace in the Neuf-Brisach cast house for UBC recycling as well as an adjacent logistic and handling facility.

The investment will foster high quality beverage can recycling in Europe, contributing to Alcan's strategy of optimizing material loops. Recycled aluminum saves about 95 percent of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions compared to the production from primary resources.
