As an aluminium producer, we take great interest in material selection and design. In this paper we want to share with you the knowledge and insights we have gained from our work with customers across the manufacturing industry, in order to better understand the role of design in general and aluminium in particular to accelerate a circular economy.

One of the largest development projects in Norway, the Økern Portal, is using Hydro’s CIRCAL 75R aluminium as facade material in its new, innovative office building. At least 75 percent of the aluminium in CIRCAL 75R is recycled metal that was previously used in other products.
