DISCOVER THE HEARTBEAT OF THE FUTURE
Building with vision means taking the future seriously. And bearing in mind that our resources are finite. We are absolutely convinced that future urban development is inconceivable without sustainable reuse of materials. INFINITE ALUMINIUM BY WICONA offers tomorrow’s standards today: We are proud to present the most sustainable aluminium system solutions in our sector. The certified production is nothing short of a revolution in the building industry.
INFINITE ALUMINIUM FOR TIMELESS ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNS
360° life cycle – a win-win situation
Thanks to our system solutions, post-consumer scrap is recycled back into the production cycle. We call this process of reclaiming materials ‘urban mining’. It saves aluminium resources and reduces the amount of waste in our cities.
The N°1 in sustainability
System solutions using INFINITE ALUMINIUM BY WICONA have the highest share of recycled end-of-life aluminium on the market – 75% and above. Its production is independently certified and completely traceable. With these solutions, today’s designs can already meet tomorrow’s environmental standards.
CONSISTENT DESIGN STARTS AT 2 KG
Minimum CO2 footprint
INFINITE ALUMINIUM BY WICONA has the smallest CO2 footprint worldwide: around 2.0 kg (1.5–2.3 kg) per kilo of aluminium – 6 times less than the worldwide average for primary extraction.
100 % possibility. 5 % energy.
Aluminium is infinitely recyclable. Its quality and material properties are never lost. Furthermore, melting down end-of-life aluminium uses just 5 % of the energy required for primary aluminium production.
THE CITY OF THE FUTURE WILL BE BUILT ON URBAN MINING
The city is a mine of raw materials
Our cities are veritable mines of raw materials. Metals, plastics, glass can be found everywhere in buildings, vehicles and machines, just “stored temporarily” – ready for responsible resource recycling.
The aluminium of the future
200,000,000 tonnes of aluminium are currently “stored” in buildings around the world. Together with other scrap, aluminium that has reached its end of life as a product in use can be brought back into production cycles (post-consumer scrap). Melting down not only saves energy. It also has a far smaller impact on the environment – 4 t less bauxite is used and 9 t less CO2 produced per tonne of re-melted aluminium compared to the production of primary aluminium.
Build the city of the future with us
WICONA is the first company in the sector to offer certified aluminium system solutions with at least 75 % of end-of-life aluminium– as well as thermal breaks made from recycled polyamide. We are absolutely convinced: The city of the future will be built on 'urban mining'. The question is: When do we start?
