Hydro Aluminium Metal Iberia is committed to sustainability and aluminium recycling by reducing the generation of carbon footprint by consuming around 40% of end-of-life aluminium annually and marketing its green product Hydro CIRCAL with a content of more than 75% post consumer aluminium.
Hydro Aluminium Iberia produces extrusion ingots alloys 6060, 6082, 6005 for building and construction, transport, industry and automotive applications.
In addition to the standard billets, Azuqueca offers Hydro’s low carbon brand Hydro CIRCAL made with more than 75% of post-consumer scrap, with a guaranteed CO2 footprint below 2.3 kg CO2 per 1kg aluminium produced, and Hydro REDUXA made with renewable energy, which results in a maximum carbon footprint of 4.0 kg CO2 per kilo aluminium produced – one third of the global average.
Hydro Aluminium Iberia is certified to the international standards for Quality (ISO 9001), Health and Safety (ISO 45001), Environment Management (ISO 14001) and Energy Efficiency (ISO 50001) as well as to the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative performance standard, which recognizes the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium.
