Novelis opens new window into recycled aluminium

Aluminium recycler Novelis has struck a partnership with Velux Group to provide high-recycled-content, flat-rolled aluminium for use in Velux roof windows.

The agreement will contribute to Velux’s goal to halve emissions from the value chain by 2030. It also aims to reach below 4 kg carbon emitted per kilogram of supplied rolled aluminium by the end of 2024. Velux says this is well below half the average carbon footprint of primary aluminium used in Europe.

It will be achieved by ensuring the aluminium used will have a recycled content of around 70% – an increase of around 30% from what Novelis currently supplies to Velux.

‘The Novelis agreement marks our second strategic aluminium partnership this year as we accelerate actions to decarbonise our products and value chain,’ says Nikolaj Cederquist, vice president of global procurement, Velux Group. ‘Our scope 3 carbon emissions are our largest and they are also the hardest for us to reduce, which is why partnerships will help us go far and faster.’

Novelis has reported net sales of US$ 17.1 billion (EUR 17 billion) in fiscal year 2022. The aluminium leader supports the circular economy and uses an average of 57% recycled content across its product range.
