REAL ALLOY has achieved ASI Chain of Custody (CoC) Standard V1 (2017) Certification for the recycling of aluminium scrap and production of wrought and foundry alloys in Germany at its Grevenbroich and Deizisau plants, plus central strategic, administrative, and service functions managed by REAL ALLOY Europe Headquarters in Grevenbroich. At the same time the scope of the company´s initial Performance Standard Certification, achieved in July 2021, was expanded to also include the Grevenbroich plant.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that two production sites plus the Europe Headquarters of REAL ALLOY in Germany have been certified against the ASI Chain of Custody Standard. The plants produce alloys to specification by converting aluminium scrap into recycled metal. This is delivered in solid or molten state to customers’ foundries in a broad range of industries, including the automotive and packaging sectors.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. The ASI CoC Standard sets out requirements for the creation of a Chain of Custody for material that is produced and processed through the value chain into diverse downstream sectors. The implementation of ASI’s CoC Standard links verified practices at successive steps of the supply chain – certified under the ASI Performance Standard – to the products produced by ASI Certified Entities.
The independent, third-party audit of the REAL ALLOY operations and headquarters was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.
“We congratulate REAL ALLOY on achieving ASI CoC Certification for its HQ and recycling facilities at Grevenbroich and Deizisau. Aluminium recycling makes a critically important contribution to circular supply chains. The ASI CoC Standard requires due diligence on recyclable scrap to support responsible sourcing beyond just closing loops. ASI CoC Certification gives REAL ALLOY’s customers assurance that it has appropriate processes in place to address a range of supply chain risks.”
– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI
“Following our initial certification against the Performance Standard last year we are very proud of having completed our next steps on our ASI journey, with the inclusion of our Grevenbroich plant in the Performance Standard (PS) certificate and with the successful initial certification against the Chain of Custody Standard for all our PS certified scope, now including our Grevenbroich plant, our Deizisau plant and our European HQ. Recycling is of immense importance for the sustainability of the whole aluminium value chain. Circular economy and low carbon footprint both depend on recycling. Making recycling more sustainable also beyond the environmental dimension is where we see much of the value of being an ASI member. We are now looking forward to supplying our customers with ASI Certified recycled aluminium!”
