exlabesa Clean Planet is an initiative based on the principles of the circular economy that aims to improve the environment, develop a more sustainable production system and reduce the impact of our activity on the environment.
exlabesa has been trusting on aluminium for more than 50 years for its excellent technical features and unmatched properties. Aluminium is a 100% recyclable material without loss of quality, which positions it as one of the key materials of the present and of the future, to be used in all types of industries (construction, architecture, automotive...). Our large experience has taught us that caring for the planet is a priority, which is why we have chosen to add to our production processes the capacity to recycle aluminium and manufacture eco-efficient aluminium billets, thus achieving a significant reduction in our footprint in the environment. exlabesa's recycled aluminium profiles generates a minimal environmental impact, making it a great option for all types of projects that have sustainability and respect for the environment as their main goal. Its CO2 footprint is 3.67 kg of CO2 per kilo of aluminium, which translates to 79.6% less than the world average for primary extraction, given that the global average is 18 kg CO2 per kg of aluminium produced.
Our recycling plants
This commitment to the environment and sustainability allow us to have recycling plants equipped with state-of-the-art smelting furnaces and latest technologies, where recycled aluminium billets are produced, which are later used to extrude new profiles and ultimately allow for infinite lives to aluminium.
Aluminium recasting uses 5% of the energy used in the production of primary aluminium, in addition to generating a minimum CO2 footprint, hence it is perfectly suited to the most demanding quality and sustainability standards.
exlabesa gives added value to its aluminium extrusion and recycling by providing sacks and containers for our customers to deposit surplus and waste, which our fleet of trucks will collect to transport them to our recycling plant.
At exlabesa, besides trusting in the circular economy as a business model, we have implemented in our Spanish factories, management systems such as the international standard ISO 14001 that guarantee the compliance of all sustainability regulations during the manufacturing process of our aluminium profiles.
This way, we have schematized all the environmental aspects we generate, promoting environmental protection and contamination prevention, optimizing our resources management and reducing the environmental footprint of all our activities.
Our strong commitment to protect the environment allow us to contribute to the reduction of sector carbon emissions which it has descent a 21% in the last 10 years.
In the future, our team will keep working to improve our results and contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable planet.
