Tubex and PreZero Pyral enter into a collaboration
PreZero Pyral and Tubex have teamed up to form a closed-loop in recycling post-consumer aluminium packaging.
Tubex and its slug supplier developed a patented alloy where the customer has the choice of up to 60% inclusion of recycling material in the slug. An aluminium slug is the primary material used to manufacture aluminium monobloc aerosol cans.
The collaboration with PreZero Pyral ensures that the specifically developed aluminium post-consumer recycled (PCR) material (eco-loop certified) is not diverted or taken from already existing and well working closed loops, such as beverage cans as a source for PCR material.
PreZero Pyral specialises in recycling of aluminium packaging and operates two eco-friendly and resource-saving pyrolysis facilities, where aluminium is recycled and recovered. With its thermal plants, the company is able to extract the material from otherwise difficult-to-recover compounded packaging and then with its own developed sorting system, it can sort the organic-free aluminium into specific alloys, allowing it to be brought back into a dedicated material-loop.
