En+ to Supply Low Carbon Aluminium to Ball Corporation forAerosols
Metals segment of En+ Group recently announced a partnership with Ball Corporation to produce aerosols and other containers made from the world’s lowest carbon aluminium, made with ground-breaking inert anode technology. The ultra-low inert anode carbon aluminium is one of several levers that Ball uses to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its aluminium slugs, cans and bottles.
En+ is a first mover in this ground-breaking inert anode technology. En+’s Metals segment RUSAL recently announced that it successfully produced aluminium with the industry's lowest carbon footprint. In the smelting process, inert anodes replace standard carbon anodes with inert, non-consumable materials. An industrial pilot line is in place at its Krasnoyarsk smelter. En+’s Metals segment is leading the development of carbon-free aluminium production and is working to scale up the technology to a commercial level.
