Aluminium recycling

Recycling: vital for our future

Aluminium is one of the most valuable recycling materials and is an attractive incentive for economic recycling. This not only reduces our waste, but also helps us save energy in order to develop and obtain new raw materials. Aluminium recycling saves 95% of the energy that would be required to obtain new metal.

Aluminium, the light metal

Aluminium weighs only 5–10% of traditional roof covering materials, making a weight saving of 90–95%. From production to storage, transport and installation, even the substructure can be made smaller. Taking into account the longevity of PREFA aluminium roof elements (no breakage, rust or frost), these products show a very favourable energy balance.
