AMS are very excited to have received our first delivery of Hydro CIRCAL 75R. Hydro CIRCAL 75R is an aluminium billet made with recycled post-consumer scrap.
Through the use of recycled content, the billet reduces energy used to manufacture billet drastically, while still being able to offer high quality products. The percentage of scrap of the Hydro CIRCAL 75R is 75% and guarantees a CO2 footprint of 2.3 kg CO2 per 1 kg aluminium. Today, Hydro is the only producer in the world capable of supplying prime quality, end-of-life, recycled aluminium.
This award winning, innovative billet enables architects,builders and building owners to meet the most demanding sustainability targets as the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. Driven by a deeper understanding of the market needs ,expectations and regulations, AMS are delighted to offer the highest sustainable aluminium with zero compromise on quality. AMS understand that being able to procure sustainable aluminium and suppoting a low carbon foot-print environment is of increasing importance thus we are constantly innovating to meet and exceed the growing sustainable needs and expectations of our customers and specifiers alike.
The properties of aluminiumium mean it is a highly recylable metal and can be used over and over again without any loss of quality. Recycling aluminium requires just 5% of the energy needed to produce primary aluminium so the Hydro CIRCAL 75R is a erfection option when specifying with sustainability in mind.
The higher the recycled content = the lower the carbon footprint
