A success story across the board
The new furnaces allowed for an annual production of 10,000 MT in 2022.
Annual production is expected to reach 20,000 to 30,000 MT by 2023, allowing the company to meet its production targets while saving nearly 2,000,000 m³ of natural gas per year.
The solution has also led to a significant reduction in GHG emissions, given that recycling 1 MT of recycled material generates only 0.4 MT of CO2
, compared to 3–12 MT generated to produce 1 MT of primary aluminum.
« In addition to receiving a non-repayable grant that reduced investment costs, SAI benefitted from quick and effective support from the Énergir team, not only during the planning phase but also during the project implementation phase. »
