Alcoa announced it has taken full control of Evermore Recycling, a leader in used beverage can recycling now operating as a wholly owned entity of Alcoa. Alcoa and Novelis previously were partners in the joint venture, which purchases more recycled cans than any other group anywhere in the world. Alcoa agreed in July to take full control of Evermore at the end of August. Alcoa’s Evermore Recycling is now a part of Alcoa’s Global Packaging group and will continue to be based in Nashville, Tenn.
