Hydro produces first near-zero aluminium in Clervaux, reaching the target set at Capital Markets Day last year

Hydro’s recycling plant in Clervaux, Luxembourg recently produced 130 tonnes of near-zero carbon aluminium with 100% post-consumer aluminium scrap.

When launching its new sustainability ambitions at Capital Markets Day in December last year, Hydro announced its intention to deliver its first commercial volumes of near-zero carbon aluminium in 2022, with 0.5-1 kg CO2/kg aluminium, through the value chain.

Hydro’s recycling plant in Clervaux, Luxembourg has to date produced 130 tonnes of Hydro CIRCAL 100R, with work now ongoing to optimise the production.

“This is an important stepping-stone to commercialise near-zero carbon aluminium and is also a good test of our capabilities to produce recycled aluminium in other locations based on a similar scrap mix,“ says Trond Olaf Christophersen, Head of Recycling in Hydro Aluminium Metal.
