How is Aluminium recycled ?
Did you know ? Aluminium is sustainable and can be recycled. Bauxite, the raw material from which aluminium is produced, exists in abundance. Yodi and its cosmetic powder have decided to use this component for its bottles.
Nowadays, almost 75% of all aluminium produced is still in the materials production loop. Not only Aluminium easily available, it is also 100% recyclable. Indeed, Aluminium can be reprocessed and reformed endlessly without losing its quality. Using this component is much better for the environment because it preserves raw materials and value-added aluminium products can lower energy costs and carbon emissions.
The process of recycling Aluminium is very simple thanks to eddy current machines that catch even small pieces of Aluminium.
Sorting centers in France are in the process of equipping themselves. Currently, out of 178 centers around thirty have them. In 2022, it is estimated that 60 sorting centers will be equipped.
We observe that the consumption of Aluminium if growing in Europe and in France (it represents 16% of the packaging sector in France in 2018). Aluminium is beginning to repace other materials because it combines several qualities on its own, such as: lightness, mechanical strength, corrosion resistance and ductility (can be worked and deformed at low temperature and without break).
Yodi has decided to use Aluminium packaging for our powder shampoos and face cleansers. This component is strong, highly recyclable, lightweight which is really easy for those who want to carry it everywhere. To avoid any transfer between our powders and the Aluminum, we have put varnish inside the bottle!
