Select aluminium for a more sustainable automotive future

juli 01, 2020

The carbon footprint of your electric vehicle is shaped by where the materials come from and how they are produced. Low-carbon aluminium is a key enabler to reducing the environmental impact of cars from the first kilometer onward.

We have turned the corner into a new transport paradigm. Driven by increasingly restrictive regulation to combat carbon emissions and improve air quality with emission-free driving, the future over the next two decades looks to be going clearly in the direction of e-mobility.

In this white paper, you will learn how low-carbon aluminium can help you achieve your weight-saving targets, as well as reduce the carbon footprint of your vehicle from a life-cycle perspective.

 

 

…the best option to achieve optimum life-cycle sustainability is using certified low-carbon aluminium with a low GWP of 3-4 kg CO2e/kg Al.

Some of the key topics discussed in the white paper are:

  • Light-weighting to increase range and reduce cost
  • Carbon footprint of electric vehicles from a life-cycle perspective and why material selection is key
  • Knowing where the materials in your vehicle come from and how they are produced matters. The white paper enables you to ask the right questions of your material suppliers
  • Aluminium is not just aluminium – low-carbon aluminium will help you reach your emission targets
