A sustainable home with Sapa
Material and quality
Developing new products starts with sustainability. We must make choices at all stages of the supply chain – from design, materials, packaging and transport right through to the final product. But the most important part is to develop products that can be used for a long time. For this reason, we focus on developing products that meet local requirements, use materials with a low carbon footprint, and work closely with local producers to ensure quality throughout the supply chain.
Made of sustainable materials
Melting down aluminum for reuse uses just 5% of the energy required for primary aluminum production. So the higher the recycled content of scrap, the better it is for our cities and the environment. Through use of renewable power and modern technology, Hydro can produce cleaner aluminum than ever before. The production process is fully traceable, and the product is certified by an independent third party (DNV GL). This certified production is nothing less than revolutionary in the construction sector.
Aluminium can be infinitely recycled. Its quality and material properties are never lost. Furthermore, recycling of end-of-life aluminium uses just 5% of the energy required for primary aluminium production. So the higher the recycled content of post-consumer scrap, the better it is for our cities and the environment.
Hydro’s product line 4.0 is verified according to ISO 14064 by DNV GL, covering all carbon emissions from bauxite mining and alumina refining to the production of aluminium in electrolysis and casting.
