Safetyline Jalousie and the Technal brand are part of HYDRO the world’s leading group in the building systems sector. Thanks to their use of aluminium, a material which can be endlessly recycled without loss in quality, “their façade systems allow architects to make their projects part of a sustainable lifestyle concept”.
Hydro is involved in the complete cycle of aluminium production from the extraction of bauxite to the manufacture of the thinnest aluminium foils and most advanced building systems. They are also committed to minimizing the environmental impacts of aluminium production. Their recycling plant in Clervaux Luxembourg recently received a significant upgrade and now has a production capacity of 105,000 tonnes of aluminium per year. Only 5% percent of the energy required to produce primary aluminium is needed to re-melt aluminium for new uses so, as the plant takes in more post consumed scrap and boosts volume, it is also significantly lowering energy consumption and reducing carbon emissions.
