Hydro will deliver Porsche and several of Porsche’s component suppliers with its low-carbon aluminium offering, Hydro Reduxa 4.0 and lower. This primary aluminium alloy has one of the lowest CO2 footprints on the market today and is produced with renewable energy. The footprint covers the emissions from the mine to the metal. By 2025 Hydro will enable Porsche to reduce the footprint of the aluminium in future vehicle projects to around 3.5 kilograms of CO2 per kilogram aluminium used. This is approx. 60 percent lower than the average primary aluminium consumed in Europe currently.
