Recycling Aluminium in the Plant of the Future

To face the climate change, the developed world needs to lead the reduction of greenhouse emissions cutting them 50% by 2030.

Governments are progressively increasing green taxes to force companies to use cleaner technologies and launching grant schemes to mitigate the burden of these new investments and achieve climate neutrality. This new paradigm requires new green technologies. The plant of the future feeds on green energy. The plant of the future is Digital and profitable. The plant of the future is Zero Waste.

When can we expect this future to be a reality?

Sooner, much sooner than you think.
