ABOUT US

Personal. Long-term. Fair.

For almost 20 years, we have been focussing on the trading and recycling of aluminium. Our founder, Tim Meinks, is an expert in aluminium trading and processing. We have expertise in the area of trading, processing, analysis and commissioning of aluminium scrap. Thanks to good networks within the industry of scrap traders, foundries and companies, we are in a position to flexibly, quickly and reliably process deliveries. We are interested in long-term business relationships and value our customers and suppliers.

ALUMINIUM SPECIALISTS

Proper recycling using a sustainable strategy


The German aluminium recycling industry is one of the forerunners in Europe with around 700,000 tonnes, with a recycling quota of over 90% in some areas and highly energy and resource-friendly recycling. This is what we stand for:

In order to achieve aluminium recycling that is as efficient as possible, it is crucial to understand the requirements and compositions of the various alloys. Thanks to our expertise in this area, we are a key partner for scrap traders and foundries across Europe. This material knowledge puts us in a position to pay our traders the best prices. We understand requirements and can thus achieve an efficient process when it comes to aluminium trading and recycling. Our mission: we want to ensure that fewer materials get lost during the recycling process. Often, the quantity of recycled materials that can actually be reused is much lower as high losses are incurred due to poor recycling. Even if materials cannot be 100% recycled, aluminium recycling can be significantly optimised by focussing more on alloys.

Compared to exploiting new materials, aluminium recycling is far less harmful to the environment. Aluminium can be fully recycled. Every single step during the mining and production of aluminium has a detrimental environmental impact. Large quantities of bauxite are mined in Australia, China and Guinea. However, raw materials for aluminium are also mined in Brasil, India, Indonesia and Jamaica, where jungles and rainforests are often deforested to obtain bauxite. The ore is then heated with sodium hydroxide to create the waste product, red mud, and naturally aluminium oxide, which is then converted into pure aluminium using an energy-consuming electrolysis process. On average, around 15,700 kWh of electrical energy is required to produce one tonne of primary aluminium. This can all be saved if we focus on recycling. This not only protects the rainforests but also significantly reduces energy consumption. According to the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR), global aluminium production is responsible for around 1% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.

CERTIFICATION

Always up to date.

We are currently undergoing a certification process as a specialist waste management company. We are currently a member of the Association of German Metal Traders. In this way, we guarantee professional waste management for our suppliers and customers.
