In 2015, the output of 3104 alloy strip can reach 3100kt, and China's output is about 400kt, accounting for 12.9% of the world's output. The foreign body for regeneration of the waste content has reached 54%, and the content of waste Chinese zero waste tank tank material produced by the Aluminum Inc in 2020 the company will reach 90%, realize the optimization cycle, if not as soon as possible China construction waste recycling tank 3104 alloy ingot project, content of scrap by 2020 Chinese the production of cans strip will still be zero, and the greater the gap with foreign countries.
Since 2010, foreign general aluminum processing enterprises can stock, almost all construction waste recycling and regeneration of the workshop or center, the largest project regeneration of 3104 alloy ingot production capacity has reached 400kt/a, 6 cans of China material production plant has not a construction of such projects. Why do foreign companies to build the project in earnest, but the domestic construction is in perfect silence? Have been studied in single tin alloy, and initial results, the launch of the EvercanTM (permanent can) and EvercleTM alloy (full cycle) alloy, recycle waste contents of them are more than 90%, but production enterprises Chinese tank material was completely indifferent.
The waste recycling China rate is the highest in the world, more than 99%, but the waste recovery did not make the best use of it, had not produced 3104 alloy, but for the production of castings, it is a waste of resources. Therefore, it is hoped that the relevant departments will introduce policies and measures to guide and support the optimization cycle of waste cans.
China's aluminum industry urgently needs to make up the waste tank and optimize the recycling of this short board.
In addition to one enterprise, the recycling waste cans in the Americas is concentrated in the United states.
The United States: the United States is the world's largest tank material producers, is the birthplace of all aluminum cans, but also the largest waste tank recycling country, but its recovery rate is not the highest, the recovery rate of nearly 70% in 2015. The recovery rate of American waste cans in 1972 is only 15%. The quality of the tank decreased year by year, about 68g/ cans in 1972, but dropped to 12.8g/ cans in 2015, and decreased by 81.2% in 43 years.
The United States has created many aspects: aluminum cans in the best in all the land can yield the most material, yield of 1380kt in 2015, accounting for about 45% of total world production; recovery amount is also the most in the world, accounting for about 40% of the total recovery, the recovery rate of 781kt in 2013, the whole world is 1950kt; the thickness of the tank thin, the thinnest thickness is less than 0.25mm, the tank wall thickness is less than 0.08mm, then thinning has little potential, unless a larger breakthrough in the alloy composition and manufacturing process; the proportion of ingredients in waste tank tank has reached 75%; Novelis company created the "EvercanTM" alloy has milepost sense, manufacturing 120Z (oz) EvercanTM alloy beer cans containing 70% recycled cans, cans and aluminum sheet with the recovery tank material content is as high as 90%.
At present, the American Red hare (RedHare) beer company decided to use "EvercanTM" alloy cans in April 2014. The company is a mini beer company, one of the fastest growing companies in the United states. The advantages of making beer cans with a new "EvercanTM" alloy: ensure the freshness of the wine in the warranty period, the shelf life than other materials; convenient transportation and carrying; contribute to environmental protection, energy saving and the development of circular economy and so on. Now there are about 400 small breweries in the United States, producing more than 1300 different brands of beer, all of which are potential users of "EvercanTM" alloy cans. "EvercanTM" alloy cans of beer will be popular in North America, Europe, South America and Asia, and the production of this tank will be multinational canning company SCC. Red hare is the first company to use "EvercanTM" alloy cans.
Element13 recovery plant
Recovery of Element13 alloy factory Weiss company is a large enterprise engaged in scrap recycling, the famous American aluminum production and equipment manufacturing, headquartered in shoals, Alabama Maskell (MuscleShoals, Ala.), has 4 wholly-owned subsidiary companies: engaged in waste recycling and Wes alloy tank material production (WiseAlloys), who engaged in recycling companies scrap recycling and regeneration (WiseRecycling), and 2 engaged in equipment manufacturing and maintenance company. Who is the third largest aluminum alloy material manufacturer, covers an area of 404700m2 (100 acres), has two plants: alloy factory and expansion in 2012 to complete the Element13 factory.
Element13 factory specializing in waste aluminum smelting and casting, the original is a Reynolds Metal Co in 1969 1999 called the group construction, acquisition, investment of 25 million dollars to the company's 2011 expansion, was completed in March 2012, covers an area of 300km2. Wes alloy factory is an aluminum strip rolling mill, using Element13 factory production of 3104 alloy billets rolling tank material, in addition to the production of aluminum foil. At present, the total production capacity of 430kt/a, in which tank material 270kt/a.
Element13 plant has a broken line of packaged waste cans, 2 Stripper kilns and 6 melting and holding furnaces. The equipment added in the expansion project includes 1 melting furnaces of 113t, 1 production lines of stripper kiln, and 1 waste tank crushing systems with capacity of 36t/h. The capacity of the whole plant to deal with waste cans reached 14 billion 600 million /a. After this expansion not only improves the scale of production in the factory, and the waste processing and smelting purification process has also been improved, the factory became second only to Germany Naxitesite recycling center of the world's second largest smelting waste cans recycling enterprise.
Weiss group established a huge acquisition of scrap and waste transport network in the United States by Wes recycling company
