Boeing, Alcoa Launch Joint Aluminum Recycling Program

RecyclingBoeing and Alcoa have launched a joint program that aims to reuse eight million pounds of aerospace aluminum alloys annually, Zacks.com reported Monday.

The companies will recycle scrap materials from Boeing’s manufacturing plants in Kansas and Washington.

Factories of sub-contractors and third-party manufacturers will undergo closed-loop recycling processes, according to the report.

Alcoa will reproduce aircraft components at its facility in Indiana and make products such as extruded materials and sheets that are used to make wing and fuselage components for Boeing jets.

Boeing will provide Alcoa aluminum alloy scrap material from facilities in Auburn, Wash. and Wichita, Kan.
