Novelis Inc and its partners at the research and development laboratory Net Zero Lab Valais, have announced that they have successfully completed the first year of operations.
In the first year of the plant’s decarbonisation journey with the Net Zero Lab Valais, the company has approved an investment in a new electrical pusher furnace, which will allow the plant to pre-heat sheet ingots with renewable electricity instead of natural gas, saving around 4,500t CO2eq per year and up to 180,000 CO2eq over the furnace’s lifetime.
In addition, the lab partners completed a project to transfer waste heat from the casting process in Novelis´ plant to the Technopôle – a nearby building complex.
