Novelis is the global leader in closed-loop recycling, a process that allows the company and its customers to reuse customers’ aluminium scrap and recycle the materials into the same products. Closed-loop recycling preserves the value of the alloy, minimises environmental impact, and establishes a secure supply chain for automakers. As we implement our recycling strategy our customers are becoming our suppliers by providing us with their scrap aluminium. The benefits in supply chain management and efficiencies of this closed loop are unparalleled, providing tremendous advantages to both the customer and Novelis.
Novelis collaborated with Jaguar Land Rover to create the first closed-loop system in Europe with a dedicated railway service to efficiently deliver aluminium between Novelis’ Nachterstedt Recycling Center in Germany and Jaguar Land Rover’s production site in the United Kingdom.
