Scientifically proven resource efficiency
In its annual study “resources SAVED byrecycling”, the Fraunhofer Institute UMSICHT calculates the extent to which the environment has been helped by ALBA Group’s recycling services. In 2018 alone, this study showed that almost 5.6 million tonnes of resources were handled by closed-loop systems run by ALBA Group companies such as Interseroh in Germany, Austria, Poland and Slovenia, saving around 31.9 million tonnes of primary raw materials. The companies also saved almost 4.4 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. Material flows included in Fraunhofer’s recycling study included metals, waste electrical equipment, paper/paperboard/cardboard, glass, lightweight packaging, plastics and wood.
