Schüco Low Carbon/Ultra Low Carbon Aluminium
In addition to standard aluminium, Schüco offers two other aluminium grades with a lower GWP value (Global Warming Potential): Low Carbon Aluminium and Ultra Low Carbon Aluminium. This is made possible by the use of recycled material as a raw material and by green electricity in the production of the aluminium.
Our Schüco low carbon profiles have a GWP value of less than 4.9 kg CO2e/kg aluminium. Our ultra low carbon profiles have a GWP value of less than 2.7 kg CO2e/kg aluminium and also contain at least 75% post-consumer material. The material flow is externally monitored and validated by DEKRA.
