We propose a real transformation on the planet through the circular economy

With the central goal of promoting aluminum recycling, we bring together society, recycling cooperatives, collectors, retailers, and industry to create opportunities, encourage sustainable choices, and generate a positive impact on the world.

We exist because we want a more sustainable world

The Recycling League was conceived by Novelis, a leader in the production of innovative rolled aluminum solutions and the largest aluminum recycler in the world. Its ambition is to be the leading supplier of sustainable and low-carbon aluminum solutions, as well as to achieve a fully circular economy. The Company is a subsidiary of Hindalco Industries Limited, a leader in the aluminum and copper sector, and part of the Aditya Birla Group, a multinational conglomerate based in Mumbai, India.

In Brazil, Novelis operates the world’s largest Integrated Recycling and Aluminum Rolling Complex, located in Pindamonhangaba (SP), as well as 15 Collection Centers, distributed from North to South of the country, and an aluminum sheet factory in Santo André (SP). In São José dos Campos (SP), the company maintains the Customer Solutions Center, an innovation hub focused on the aluminum beverage can market.
