AMAG and Audi Hungaria collaborate to close the loop on aluminium recycling

  • Production waste generated at the Audi plant is re-processed into high-quality semi-finished aluminium products
  • Closed material cycle saves energy and resources
  • Ecological win-win situation for both parties

     A supply contract was recently signed with AUDI HUNGARIA Zrt to expand resource-saving closed loop relationships. In the future, production waste generated at the Audi plant in Györ will be delivered to AMAG in Ranshofen in the form of sorted aluminium sheet scrap. AMAG recycles it into new aluminium sheet leading to a closed material cycle. This conserves valuable resources and saves energy.


    “Recycling is one of AMAG’s core competencies. The closed-loop concept is an effective and sustainable recycling concept that goes beyond our corporate boundaries. Many years of experience, our know-how and the use of state-of-the-art recycling technology allow us to provide our customers with the best possible support in terms of CO2-optimized products and processes”, says AMAG CEO Gerald Mayer.


    The economical and efficient use of resources along the value chain is an integral part of the corporate strategy. AMAG thus relies on a comprehensive package of measures including the expansion of closed-loop relationships, a high scrap utilization rate, an electricity mix generated solely from renewable sources, sustainable rainwater management or projects contributing to the decarbonization of the production process.
