Global automotive supplier of multi-material impact energy management and lightweight body structures Shape Corp has entered into an agreement with leading producer of aluminum to be the first to explore and bring to the US market, automotive components utilizing Hydro CIRCAL, containing a minimum of 75% post-consumer aluminum scrap. This collaborative partnership opens the doors for Shape to introduce the uniqueness of Hydro CIRCAL to the global automotive market, bringing green on green solutions while continuing to provide the strength and weight-saving properties held by Hydro's aluminum product line.Hydro CIRCAL is Hydro's brand of recycled aluminum made with a minimum of 75% recycled, post-consumer aluminum scrap, certified by third-party auditors DNV GL and has a market-leading CO2 footprint of just 2.3 kg CO2e per kg aluminum or less. CIRCAL is expected to deliver an estimated 70% CO2 reduction versus the North American average for aluminum when including Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Through advanced processing technology, Hydro is able to create material with the highest post-consumer recycled content in the market. As a result, Hydro drastically reduces energy use in the production phase while still offering high-quality aluminum with equivalent metallurgical properties that maintain the strength and corrosion resistance needed in automotive components.
