Novelis works with Jaguar Land Rover to create alloy with 75% recycled content

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Novelis, the specialist in aluminum rolling and recycling, has announced that its RC5754 alloy, a new automotive product designed to contain up to 75% recycled content, has been integrated into the structural components of high volume production passenger vehicles.

RC5754 was developed with Jaguar Land Rover and is reported to serve as a key component of Jaguar’s REALCAR (REcycled ALuminium CAR) project. First introduced in the new Jaguar XE, the RC5754 alloy will also be featured in all new and legacy Jaguar Land Rover models.

Pierre Labat, vice president, Automotive, Novelis Europe, said: “Novelis’ new RC5754 alloy not only meets the high recycled content threshold required by Jaguar Land Rover’s REALCAR project, but also it delivers the strength, durability and formability specified by world-leading Jaguar Land Rover engineers.”

- Learnings from the collaboration of Novelis and Jaguar Land Rover in developing this new product are documented in“Collaboration for a Closed-Loop Value Chain,” a case study issued in January following the companies’ participation in the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership’s Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Value Chains.
