Raffmetal And Cromodora Wheels To Collaborate On Production Of Recycled Aluminium Alloy Wheels

European firms Raffmetal S.p.A. and Cromodora Wheels announced a partnership this week to develop, test, and produce aluminium alloy wheels made from recycled aluminium content.

Per the firms, the production of aluminium alloy wheels from recycled aluminium content will reduce CO2 emissions by up to 89 percent and use up to 95 percent less energy to produce than conventional aluminium alloy wheels.

The firms say the growing market demand for products with a reduced emissions profile prompted them to engage in the partnership. The aluminium alloy wheels to be produced under the partnership will utilize around 80 percent post-consumer product.

Orlando Niboli, Raffmetal President, told the media that this partnership is part of a wider initiative to promote sustainable development.

“Our strategy has always been to anticipate the times with a view to sustainable development, and this partnership represents a fundamental step in the direction of sustainability and the circular economy as a lever of shared values between two important industrial realities in Brescia, recognized as leaders at international level.”

Roberta Niboli, Raffmetal Commercial Manager, noted that the partnership addressed certain outstanding issues the firms have had with supply chains in recent months.

“Together we share a roadmap to ensure the maintenance of the European aluminium supply chain, today strongly affected by the shortage of raw materials and rising energy costs, while preserving the know-how of an Italian industrial sector recognized as a leader in technological innovation, quality, production excellence and environmental sustainability.”

“In a context characterized by the need to take urgent action to preserve the planet and combat climate change, Cromodora Wheels and Raffmetal want to be key players in this transition,” opined Giancarlo Dallera, Cromodora Wheels President. “This is why it is increasingly necessary to forge strategic partnerships, optimizing the sharing of know-how in research and development, in order to bring benefits along the production chains of reference.”
