Novelis Breaks Ground on $250 Million Aluminum Recycling Plant in Germany

Novelis broke ground on a $250 million aluminum recycling and casting center at its Nachterstedt plant in Germany. The new center, which is constructed adjacent to the company’s existing rolling mill, will enable the company to produce 400,000 metric tons of aluminum sheet ingot from recycled material annually, and is projected to be the world’s largest aluminum recycling center.

“This investment represents another step in delivering on our commitment to dramatically increase the recycled content of the rolled aluminum sheet we provide to our world-class global customers,” said Phil Martens, President and Chief Executive Officer for Novelis, “while also signifying our long term commitment to the European market. The advanced sorting, processing and casting capabilities of the new Nachterstedt operation will propel us closer to our goal of 80 percent recycled content by 2020.”
