Building with vision means taking the future seriously. And bearing in mind that our resources are finite.
We are absolutely convinced that future urban development is inconceivable without sustainable reuse of materials. We are demonstrating our focus on sustainability by using Hydro’s CIRCAL ® for our system solutions, one of the most sustainable aluminium alloys in our sector.
Hydro CIRCAL® is a range of prime quality aluminium made with a minimum of 75% recycled end-of-life aluminium (post-consumer scrap), like for example façades and windows that have been dismantled from building and fully recycled.
Solutions using Hydro CIRCAL® have the highest share of recycled aluminium on the market, at least 75 %.
Therefore, the higher the recycled content of post-consumer waste, the better for our cities and the environment.
Through the use of renewable and modern energy, Hydro is able to produce cleaner aluminium than ever before. The production process is fully traceable, and the product is certified by an independent third party (DNV-GL). The certification body is nothing less than a revolution in the building industry.
Hydro CIRCAL® has one of the smallest CO2 footprint worldwide: 2.3kg of CO2 per kilo of aluminium. This is seven times or 84% less than the world-wide average for primary extraction (IAI 2018 report based on 2015 data).
Our innovative systems solutions assure developers, architects and investors that their projects meet the requirements of sustainable certification.
Our systems carry the sustainability products pass of the ift Rosenheim, the EPD of the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V and the international Cradle to Cradle.
With Hydro CIRCAL®, your designs will already be meeting tomorrow’s standards-including green building certifications such as LEED, BREEAM and DGNB.
The more projects are built using sustainable aluminium system solutions, the more we can continuously improve the eco balance of the material and the building. The fact is: the building of the future will be realized with renewable resources. We can help you take part in that process.
