Saves Energy and Natural Resources
Continental Aluminum is proud to be in the domestic scrap recycling industry. This industry is an integral part of our nation's efforts to conserve its natural resources and make better use of diminishing landfill capacity.
Recycling aluminum results in enormous energy savings. It takes 95% less energy to produce an aluminum can from a used one than from virgin ore.
It also helps solve the country's landfill problems, which include a shortage of space, health and environmental concerns, and high costs. (The most costly means of disposal is landfilling.)
But one of the greatest advantages of recycling
is that it lowers the levels of environmental desecration and conserves
our natural resources.
