NEW COLLABORATION THAT LOWERS BOTH COSTS AND CLIMATE FOOTPRINT
A new collaboration between Stena Aluminium and Comptech gives customers access to aluminium alloys with many times lower carbon dioxide emissions, and lower costs. Combining Comptech's technology within Rheocasting, with Stena Aluminium's 100 percent recycled aluminium, enables benefits in terms of both emissions and costs.
PARTNERSHIP WITH HYDRO
During the year, a partnership was established between Stena Aluminium and Hydro, one of the largest aluminium foundry alloy producers in Europe. The common ambition is to take the lead in delivering industrial-scale zero-carbon aluminium by 2030, and the fastest way to deliver zero-carbon aluminium is by using recycled aluminium made from post-consumer scrap.
PARTNERSHIP WITH INTERNATIONAL ALUMINIUM CASTING (IAC)
During the year, a partnership was entered into between Stena Aluminium, the Swedish aluminium supplier International Aluminium Casting (IAC), and Stena Recyling. First, Stena Recycling collects and sorts aluminium waste, which is then recycled and processed by Stena Aluminium into new, recycled aluminium raw material, which goes back to IAC.
INCREASED TRANSPARENCY ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
As part of Stena Aluminium's ambition to help customers reduce their environmental impact, reporting of environmental impact in the form of greenhouse gas emissions of both major product groups and individual products began during the year. Stena Aluminium's own carbon footprint has been measured and reported since 2021 in line with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. During the year, the annual climate report was verified by Bureau Veritas.
IMPROVED TECHNICAL SUPPORT
By establishing a new Technical Sales Specialist function, Stena Aluminium strengthened its capacity for guiding customers on specifying new alloys or modifying existing ones. Supporting customers to choose more environmentally friendly alloys creates benefits for all involved - the customer, the environment, and Stena Aluminium.
