Constellium was chosen by Nespresso to participate in the recycling of used capsules as part of Second Life, an innovative project conducted in Switzerland where Nespresso is headquartered.
The campaign aims at integrating sustainability across Nespresso’s value chain by giving the colored coffee capsules a new life through aluminum recycling.
For Second Life, Constellium will lend its expertise in metal supply and recycling using its aluminum casting and rolling plant in Singen, Germany.
The facility will be part of the transformation of the used capsules that were collected into new ones, as well as into iconic and quintessentially Swiss products that will be sold throughout the country for a limited period of time over the summer at Victorinox and Nespresso shops in Switzerland.
