Rusal America and Cuprum announce "Green Aluminum" Alliance
The new “GREEN ALUMINUM” Alliance is the first of its kind in the North American extrusion market; reinforcing the fact that sustainability is the most important factor in the aluminum industry.
Rusal America and Cuprum confirmed that both companies will be extending their current billet alliance to a “Green Aluminum” focus.
Rusal America will continue to supply aluminum billets to Cuprum with increased levels of low carbon primary billets. The main aluminum supplier will now also provide said billets with a Green Certification in all its deliveries.
As part of the new alliance, Rusal America will continue to supply Cuprum with:
- Technical assistance so that internal billet production may be classified as having low carbon levels; as well as working together to achieve the ASI (Aluminum Stewardship Initiative) international certification.
- Support in the Green Aluminum market and LEED certification promotion, ASI membership and Environmental Product Declarations.
- Green Aluminum process training to all of Cuprum’s key personnel.
“Green Aluminum” helps lower greenhouse gas emissions in manufacturing processes and promotes the use of recycled aluminum in the industry.
