A complex life-cycle story

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable and is often a go-to choice when considering sustainability and circularity. The unique properties of aluminium mean that the metal has a big role to play in the creation of a more circular economy.

However, these properties are just the start of a complex life-cycle story, presenting various challenges to designers, engineers and others. Every challenge is an opportunity for innovation and an opportunity to mirror natural cycles more closely in the way we use materials.
