Wieland has launched a new copper tube at the ISH trade fair in Frankfurt that advances both building technology and construction in the area of sustainability: cuprolife. Wieland has thus succeeded in further closing its own material cycles in terms of sustainability, as the new tube is made of 100 percent recycled material. Since copper can be fully recycled indefinitely and without any loss of quality, almost half of today’s copper demand in Europe is currently covered by recycling. The Wieland Group continues to actively promote this development in the industry and is investing in the construction of copper recycling plants in Shelbyville, Kentucky, as well as at the Vöhringen (DE) site. In this way, Wieland is increasing its own annual recycling capacity by around 180,000 tons.
