Novelis are to invest £1.4 million in their Latchford Locks plant, increasing the can reprocessing capacity by 25%.
The Warrington plant broke all records by recycling six billion cans in the first nine months of the year, with the extra investment showing the company's commitment to aluminium.
The move will allow an extra two billion cans to be processed each year, giving many economic and energy benefits.
The increase in productivity will be achieved by adding infrastructure and equipment needed to move molten metal around the site, increasing flexibility. There is also the continuous process of improvements that now allows the plant to recycle cans from across Europe.
Madden added: "We are very excited about the latest investment. It demonstrates the commitment of the aluminium rolled products sector to recycling and confirms that reprocessing capacity across Europe is not an issue for aluminium cans."
