Get an overview of how sustainability is lived at MiniTec here:
A major advantage of aluminum as a material is its long service life. 75% of the aluminum ever produced is still in use. A large part of it has already been recycled several times, with this rate rising continuously and accounting for more than 2/3 of total consumption in Germany. Only 5% of the original amount of energy is required to recover the raw material, which significantly improves the eco-balance of this material.
An important prerequisite for recycling without loss of quality, however, is recycling-oriented product design and the sorted collection of the recyclable material. Therefore, all extruded MiniTec profiles are made of the same alloy. The aluminum swarf and profile remnants produced during production are collected in a closed cycle and sorted for recycling. Specially marked collection containers are available for this purpose in each department.
One of the most important contributions to the conservation of resources is the unlimited reusability of our profiles and components. The reason for this is the unique MiniTec profile connector, which allows structures to be assembled without drilling. This means that they can be easily dismantled and all components reused for other purposes. And by the way, the fact that no mechanical processing is required also means that less energy is needed.
