THE IMPACT OF CHOOSING TECHNAL PRODUCTS

What is the difference between choosing TECHNAL products extruded using Hydro CIRCAL 75R aluminium and products made using primary aluminium from other sources?

The average carbon footprint of aluminium used in Europe is 8.6kg of CO2 for every kg of aluminium. With Hydro CIRCAL 75R, this carbon footprint drops to 2.3kg of aluminium, so 6.3kg of CO2 is prevented from entering the atmosphere. 

A typical aluminium window uses around 20kg of aluminium, which generates an average saving of 126kg of CO2 emissions for each window system.

CARBON FOOTPRINT

1 home= 5 windows
1 project = 50 homes
50 homes = 250 windows

 

1 window = 20 kg of aluminium (average)
250 windows = 5,000 kg of aluminium

 

5,000 kg of primary aluminium x 8.6kg CO2 = 43,000 kg of CO2 emissions

5.000 kg of Hydro CIRCAL 75R aluminium x 2.3kg of CO2 = 11,500kg CO2 emissions

Using TECHNAL windows made with Hydro CIRCAL 75R in this building represents a reduction of CO2 emissions by 31,500 kg. 

 

This is equivalent to the emissions of 21 cars during an entire year.
