Hydro 75R® – a new world standard for recycled content

aluminium stamped with 75R % post-consumer scrap. Certified sustainable product Hydro

Operating the most advanced sorting technology in the industry allows us to provide the highest recycled content in the market. Hydro 75R® extrusion ingot contains a minimum of 75 percent post-consumer scrap. The higher the recycled content, the lower the carbon footprint.

More than 75 percent recycled content

When guaranteeing more than 75 percent recycled content, we exclusively refer to aluminum that has reached its end of life as a product in use – and is brought back into the loop. The production process is fully traceable, and the product is certified by an independent third party. This is real recycling, and makes Hydro 75R® a seal of approval for low-carbon aluminum.

We are the only producer in the world capable of supplying prime quality end-of-life recycled aluminum. Hydro 75R® is verified by DNV GL, based on traceability and quality principles developed by Hydro.
