BENEFITS FOR THE PRIMARY ALUMINUM SMELTERS

CARE NOW SOLUTIONS assists aluminum smelters mitigate environmental waste issues through recovery, recycling and/or sale of certain by-products generated during their manufacturing process.

By recycling by-products from primary aluminum production, CARE NOW SOLUTIONS also contributes to:

 

  • Reducing the need to landfill waste materials towards more sustainable primary aluminum manufacturing practices;

  • Provides financial savings for the primary aluminum smelters;

  • Yields environmental benefits for the community.
