Today in MetalCrawler we’re happy to report new investment in cold-rolled steel production and 100 new industry jobs. Novelis continues to do its part for recycled aluminum products, too.
100% Recycled Aluminum
Novelis, Inc. has launched the first independently certified material to be made of 100% recycled aluminum.
The first product in the evercycle portfolio is designed for aluminum food containers. It is certified by SCS Global Services to contain 100% recycled aluminum, made up of 90% post-consumer content and 10% customer manufacturing scrap.
Evercycle is commercially available now in North America and it expects it to become available elsewhere soon.
New Life for Detroit Steel Plant
Ferrous CAL Co. of Cleveland plans to invest $53 million in the former McLouth Steel and Detroit Cold Rolling plant in Gibraltar, Mich.
The Wayne County Commission voted unanimously recently to OK a brownfield cleanup for the mostly inactive steel plant site.
Ferrous CAL bought the plant last month and plans to upgrade and clean the 42.5-acre site to produce steel for automotive companies and other customers. The company expects to create 100 jobs as part of its investment, and 15 employees who were already working at the site will keep their jobs.
