Waste cannot always be avoided, and not everything can be reused. Recycling is also needed – to reprocess residual waste, recover as much material as possible, and give it a new lease of life.
The companies in the ALBA Group use advanced recycling methods to provide industry with a sustainable supply of key raw materials.
Smart recycling is the ALBA Group’s core business. Recycling saves resources, prevents climate-damaging greenhouse gas emissions and significantly reduces industry’s dependence on primary raw materials.
Modern recycling technologies ensure a sustained output of high-quality secondary raw materials for the global market. By dismantling end-of-life vehicles, reusing waste wood, reprocessing waste electrical and electronic equipment and recycling plastics, we create value from waste. And with upcycling, we find new, even better-quality uses for waste materials.
„The reliable supply of industrial raw materials is an essential aspect of the German economy. At this stage, we have made a significant contribution to the recycling industry for over 50 years, maintaining a family run business.”
Dr Eric Schweitzer, CEO of ALBA Group
