Our Sustainability Efforts

As BMI has grown over the years, we have kept environmental sustainability in mind when developing our products.

Buchner Manufacturing has always recycled aluminum scrap as part of our commitment to the environment and future generations. The last five years have seen more than 5,000,000 pounds of scrap sent to the recycler, resulting in products that serve a purpose and prevent landfill waste.

Why is recycled aluminum better?

In the aluminum industry, recycling is an essential part of the business, and aluminum is one of the most recycled materials on the planet. When recycled appropriately, it can be reproduced into everyday products continuously. Did you know that nearly 75% of the aluminum produced in the United States is still in use today?

The recycling process for aluminum takes 95% less energy needed to make new aluminum, which reduces carbon emissions, helping save the environment. 

Other sustainability efforts

Buchner Manufacturing Inc. products are also packaged in boxes made of 95% recycled material, which are produced from a process that recycles their production waste. 

Allowing the use of recycled raw materials in the production process saves over 14,000,000 million trees from being cut down each year. 

By choosing BMI products, you're not only getting a high-quality aluminum product, but you're purchasing products that are 98% recycled from both pre-consumer and post-consumer processes.
