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.
360° life cycle - a win-win situation
Post-consumer scrap is recycled back into the production cycle and is re-used. We call this reclamation process 'urban mining'. This saves aluminium resources and reduces the amount of waste in our towns and cities.
The Number 1 solution in sustainability
With a 75% share of recycled end-of-life aluminium, system solutions using INFINITE ALUMINIUM BY WICONA have the highest share of recycled materials on the market. Solutions are independently certified and fully traceable. Our solutions help today's designs meet tomorrow's environmental standards.
Lowered CO2 footprint
INFINITE ALUMINIUM BY WICONA has the smallest CO2 footprint available on the market. At around 1.5kg - 2.3kg for each kilo of aluminium it's 6 times less than the global average for primary extraction.
100% possibility with 5% energy
Aluminium is infinitely recyclable without loss of material properties and quality. Plus, melting down end-of-life aluminium uses just 5% of the energy needed for primary aluminium production.
The city is a mine of raw materials
Our cities are veritable mines of raw materials. Metals, plastics and glass can be found everywhere in buildings, machines and vehicles being temporarily stored - ready for responsible resource recycling when they come to the end of their current life.
The aluminium of the future
200,000,000 tonnes of aluminium is currently stored in buildings around the world. Together with scrap from other products, aluminium that has reached its end-of-life as a product in use can be brought back into production cycles. Melting down post-consumer scrap doesn't just save energy. It has a much smaller impact on the environment. For each tonne of melted aluminium, 4 tonnes less bauxite is used, and 9 tonnes less CO2 is produced compared to the production of primary aluminium.
Build the city of the future with us
WICONA is the first company in our sector to offer certified aluminium solutions with at least 75% end-of-life aluminium scrap - as well as thermal breaks using recycled polyamide.
We are absolutely convinced that the city of the future will be built on Urban Mining. The question is, when do we start?
