Real Alloy’s recycling plant Deizisau, Germany has achieved Performance Standard certification from the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI).
The ASI Certification for the plant covers the recycling of aluminium scrap and production of recycled aluminium alloys. The plant produces alloys to specification by converting aluminium scrap into liquid metal which is delivered directly to customers´ foundries. The European headquarters in Grevenbroich, Germany, was ASI-certified too. The independent, third-party audit of the Real Alloy plant and European HQ was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.
ASI certification: recycling plant meets industry-leading sustainability criteria
The ASI Performance Standard includes the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. Fiona Solomon, CEO of ASI said: “The Real Alloy plant’s furnaces enable it to recycle a wide range of scrap and makes it a valuable link in the circular economy bringing aluminium back into productive use. Achieving ASI Certification gives their customers the assurance that the plant’s production processes meet industry-leading sustainability criteria.”
Successful step on sustainability journey
Russell Barr, managing director Europe at Real Alloy, said: “We are proud to have achieved this first certification according to the ASI Performance Standard, especially since it includes not only our Deizisau site but also the central functions, policies and processes administered by our European HQ. Since we joined ASI it has become more and more important for us to understand and properly manage our sustainability footprint. Preparing for and going through the audit was both challenging and inspiring. And we see it as another successful step on our to-be-continued sustainability journey.”
