ASI Certifies 3 Jupiter Aluminum Facilities in US
The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative announced that Jupiter Aluminum has been successfully certified against the Chain of Custody Standard for three facilities, two in Indiana and one in West Virginia USA. Jupiter melts scrap aluminum to produce common alloy coils destined for various North American markets. Jupiter Aluminum has achieved Chain of Custody Standard Certification for its scrap re-melting, cold rolling, annealing, and finishing operations in Hammond, Indiana, as well as its two coil coating facilities located in West Virginia and Indiana, USA. Jupiter Aluminum’s Hammond facility was the first in the USA to achieve ASI Performance Standard Certification in January 2020, and the two coil coating facilities were added to the certification scope in March 2021.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. The ASI CoC Standard sets out requirements for the creation of a Chain of Custody for material that is produced and processed through the value chain into diverse downstream sectors. The implementation of ASI’s CoC Standard links verified practices at successive steps of the supply chain – certified under the ASI Performance Standard – to the products produced by ASI Certified Entities.
The independent, third-party audits of the Jupiter Aluminum plants were carried out by DNV GL.
