Tubex joins Alupro
The aluminium packaging recycling organisation (Alupro) has welcomed Tubex Aluminium Tubes as its latest member.
Headquartered in Austria, but with production facilities worldwide, the company produces a wide variety of sustainable aluminium packaging solutions for the cosmetics, food, pharma and industrial sectors.
Rather than a manufacturer, Tubex positions itself as a solutions provider that helps businesses to provide customers with eco-designed, protective packaging products and claims to have the world’s largest aluminium tube production facilities and delivery.
With two main product lines – Blue Tube (created from 95% post-consumer and 5% post-industrial aluminium) and Monotube (manufactured from a single material type), the company says it is committed to meeting manufacturer requirements for circularity, recyclability and sustainability. Each product is ready to use, resealable and achieves a high restitution rate.
Thierry Bitout, CEO at Tubex Aluminium Tubes, said: “While many packaging manufacturers are working to reduce their environmental impact, we believe that Tubex is truly setting the standards through innovative use of low-carbon recycled aluminium. Indeed, our products show that a closed-loop, infinitely circular economy is perfectly possible.
“Joining Alupro provides a unique platform to engage with our customers, suppliers and consumers to further promote the aluminium recycling message.”
Tom Giddings, general manager at Alupro, added: “We’re delighted to announce Tubex as the very first aluminium tube manufacturer to join Alupro. It demonstrates the company’s commitment to driving up recycling rates, as well as communicating the recycling message to consumers.
“We look forward to exploring the ways in which we can work together and make a real difference to the aluminium packaging recycling industry.”
