More than 100 large building projects have been signed since the greener brand Hydro CIRCAL was launched in 2019, reports Norwegian Hydro.
“This milestone highlights the potential for low-carbon aluminium products in the building industry. With a strong focus on execution, our team has secured and delivered solutions for a variety of building projects. We also have new projects in the pipeline,” said Henri Gomez, Head of Building Systems at Hydro.
As buildings represent about 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions globally and with a greater focus on sustainability from the industry, investors and government, enhanced sustainability credentials have become more and more sought-after.
Hydro CIRCAL is made with recycled, post-consumer aluminium scrap. Using recycled content, energy consumption is drastically reduced while still producing high-quality products.
Hydro has won large building projects in 10 countries across two continents with Hydro CIRCAL. This represents a reduction of 25 000 tonnes of CO2, compared to using standard aluminium consumed in Europe.
Hydro has managed to strengthen the company’s competitive position with low-carbon aluminium, enabled by technology and innovation.
“From thriving business hubs to a total revamp for iconic buildings, the span of the project we have delivered is great. We have been able to demonstrate that it is possible to use post-consumer recycled aluminium and drastically reduce energy consumption, while still producing high-quality products,” said Gomez.
We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
