Novelis Inc. is an American industrial aluminium company, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. It is a subsidiary of multinational aluminum and copper manufacturing company Hindalco Industries. Novelis is a leading producer of rolled aluminum and the global leader in beverage can recycling. The company serves customers in sectors including beverage cans, automotive, consumer electronics, construction, foil, and packaging.
Novelis is the largest producer of rolled aluminum sheets, with operations spanning 11 countries and nearly 11,000 employees. The company divides its operations into four regions: North America, Europe, Asia, and South America. The regional headquarters are Atlanta, Zurich, Seoul, and Sao Paulo. Novelis also has operations in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Canada, China, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
The plant, in Nachterstedt in east Germany, produced 400,000 tons of aluminium annually using scrap including drinks cans, cables, wires, and industrial waste. This saves around 4 million US tons of CO2 emissions compared with the use of virgin aluminium.
It includes two parallel processing lines. A processing line is specifically for beverage cans and one for varied aluminium scrap. It produces about 55 ingots – each weighing about 27.5 tons and measuring 12 m long – from scrap aluminium per day.
