The remaining 25% of our production is from primary billet, which typically contains 3-5% recycled aluminum. All of their suppliers end aluminum products are 100% recyclable with no downgrading of the material qualities. Over 30% of the aluminum produced worldwide now come from secondary sources (recycled material). The re-melting of aluminum requires little energy as well; only about 5 percent of the energy required to produce the primary metal initially is needed in the recycling process.
