Aluminum’s infinite recyclability is an essential component of its sustainability footprint and that gives us the unique ability to close the loop here at CASS.
Our Commitment to
Chlorine is a highly toxic & corrosive gas yet, many secondary aluminum producers use chlorine gas or chlorine containing fluxes. Chlorine in toxic concentrations is known to have a kill radius of 2 miles and that is a risk CASS will never take!
To reduce costs, an increasing number of secondary aluminum producers choose nitrogen in their degassing process. However, in order to guarantee the yield a superior product made in the safest, most environmentally friendly way, CASS uses argon - a colorless, odorless, tasteless and non-toxic noble gas that can provide an inert & clean environment free of problematic elements.
We don’t use fluxes in the removal of magnesium and the purification of molten aluminum from oxides and hydrogen. Instead we blend down the magnesium using higher purity material. This practice requires us to be more diligent but results in a secondary marketable product that is chloride-free.
DID YOU KNOW?
CASS is the only manufacturer of aluminum made from 100% end of life recyclables in California that does not use CHLORINE.
CASS Ingot has been approved for good delivery against LME contracts and conforms to strict requirements on quality, shape and weight, as outlined by the exchange.
Our manufacturing and recycling facilities are ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015
ISO 9001 is a standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system. It helps CASS to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction.
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps CASS improve our environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
