RUSAL to Supply ALLOW Low Carbon Aluminium to Rheinfelden
Leading Russian aluminium producer RUSAL announced that it will supply its plant Aluminium Rheinfelden with its industry leading bespoke low carbon aluminium, ALLOW, delivering a significant boost to the sustainability credentials of one of Germany’s leading manufacturers of aluminium alloys, semis and carbon-based components. The first shipments of ALLOW aluminium are expected to be supplied in August 2021. Using ALLOW, which has one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry, will help improve the profile of Rheinfelden’s proprietary alloys, bring new opportunities to grow the business, boost competitiveness and provide customers with a fully transparent and independently verified Carbon Footprint for their key components.
ALLOW’s carbon footprint is lower than 4 tonne CO2 per tonne Al, while the world average is currently approximately 12 tonne CO2 per tonne Al (scope 1 and 2 at the smelter).
Aluminium Rheinfelden was acquired by RUSAL earlier this year and its investment will help unlock a new generation of sustainable aluminium solutions for Rheinfelden, benefitting its customers across the global automotive industry and beyond. As well as enhancing the manufacturing of alloys, the combination of ALLOW aluminium and Rheinfelden’s recycling capabilities will increase the sustainability of its class-leading semis production.
