- Up to 30% of aluminium extrusions supplied each month by G.James Extrusion is manufactured in Australia from billet produced using recycled aluminium sourced from our own remelt facility.
- Recycled (or secondary) aluminium billet requires approx. 90% less power to produce than primary billet. In addition, the embodied energy required to recycle aluminium only demands 7% of the energy required to recycle plastic.
- All cast aluminium products are manufactured from ingots produced using 100% recycled aluminium scrap.
- Available aluminium 'swarf' (or saw shavings) is compressed in-house to form solid aluminium 'pucks' which are then recycled by a third party. In volume terms, this process has a compression factor of 3.5:1 (approx).
G.James has been careful and diligent to ensure the accuracy of this information. For various reasons some of the practices and commitments detailed above may not be holistic in their implementation but rather a practice implemented wherever possible.
