Low-carbon aluminium: Hydro REDUXA and Hydro CIRCAL

Using durable and recyclable materials with a low carbon footprint will contribute to reducing global emissions and create products for a more circular economy. This is why Hydro is constantly working to develop aluminium alloys with a low carbon footprint. Currently we offer two series of low-carbon materials through our CIRCAL and REDUXA product lines.

  • Hydro CIRCAL is a range of products made with recycled, post-consumer scrap. Through the use of recycled content, we reduce energy use drastically while still being able to offer high-quality products. The percentage of scrap will change depending on specifications from the client, but we can always guarantee a CO²e footprint below 2.3kg CO²e per 1kg aluminium produced with Hydro CIRCAL 75R.

  • Hydro REDUXA is our series of low-carbon aluminium. Through the use of renewable energy sources like hydro power, we reduce the carbon footprint per kg aluminium to less than a fourth of the global average. The result is aluminium with one of the world’s lowest carbon footprint to date. Learn more about Hydro REDUXA low-carbon aluminium
