Hydro recycling plant in Luxembourg receives sustainability award

Hydro's aluminium recycling plant in Clervaux has received a national business and industry award for outstanding performance in environment and climate protection.

CIRCAL low-carbon aluminium extrusion ingot

The national award, given every two years by Luxembourg business federation FEDIL, delivered by Carole Dieschbourg, the Minister of Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development, highlighted the plant’s production of low-carbon aluminium.

The minister emphasized that Clervaux’s efforts, especially with production of CIRCAL 75R aluminium extrusion ingot, which is guaranteed to contain at least 75% post-consumer, recycled aluminium, fit perfectly with the country’s priority to develop a circular economy and deliver on climate issues.

“This is a big recognition,” says Plant Manager Ludovic Dardinier.

CIRCAL and REDUXA, Hydro’s extrusion ingot with a guaranteed maximum carbon footprint of 4kg of CO2 per 1kg of aluminium produced, are part of Hydro’s efforts to lower climate emissions and increase recycling of aluminium.
