Høyanger primary aluminium smelter in western Norway. The investment represents another step in realizing Hydro’s ambition of doubling recycling of post-consumer aluminium by 2025. Høyanger Recycling will be established in this building. It is located near the Hydro Høyanger primary aluminium plant and used to house production of aluminium wheels. Now installaion of new production equipment and upgrade of existing assets and buildings will be carried out. When fully operational, Høyanger Recycling will have an annual capacity of 33,000 tonnes and around 20 direct employees. The recycled post-consumer aluminium will be divided among Hydro’s Norwegian primary aluminium smelters in Høyanger, Sunndal, Karmøy, Årdal and Husnes for use in hybrid production. Since Hydro’s aluminium production in Norway is entirely based on renewable power, its average CO2 emissions are already only 25% of the global average and available to customers as Hydro REDUXA certified low-carbon primary aluminium. The introduction of post-consumer scrap in the production process of primary aluminium improves its climate performance even further. Production at Høyanger Recycling is expected to begin in March 2023.
