Low-carbon aluminum: Hydro 4.0™ and Hydro 75R®
Our low-carbon aluminum products are designed to help you reach your sustainability goals and meet the demands of ever more climate-conscious consumers.
Our climate strategy is industry-leading: It is our aim to become carbon-neutral in a life-cycle perspective by 2020. We produce our own bauxite, our own alumina and our own renewable energy. We develop and operate electrolysis technology with the lowest energy consumption and the lowest emissions. We add science, innovation, R&D and advanced product development to our products, and we return post-consumer scrap to the loop to be used over and over again.
Our product line Hydro 4.0™ is verified according to ISO 14064 by DNV GL. Our primary aluminum is produced in Norway, using renewable hydropower. We use advanced technology with lower energy consumption and low direct emissions.
