Aluminum products from the Swedish region of Småland have a smaller climate footprint

Aluminum is light and strong at the same time, is made from one of the most common metals in our earth's crust and can be recycled an almost infinite number of times. ProfilGruppen are experts in this material of the future and produce aluminum profiles for multinational companies in, among other things, the automotive industry, the construction industry and the electronics industry.
- We operate in the middle of what is known as the Aluminum Kingdom in Småland. Many of our partners who further refine our products are only a few kilometers from us, says Anna Sjöstrand, environmental coordinator at ProfilGruppen.
Hydropower provides greener aluminum
Producing new aluminum is a very energy-intensive process. This is precisely why ProfilGruppen wants to use raw materials produced with green energy.
- In other parts of Europe and in China, coal power is used for energy supply. This means that the global carbon footprint will be approximately 17 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalents per kilogram of aluminum produced, compared to a maximum of 4 kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalents if the raw material was produced with hydropower. When our customers choose us as an aluminum supplier, they also have the opportunity to choose a greener raw material, says Anna Sjöstrand.
Once the aluminum is made, it can be melted down and reused over and over again without losing its properties. The recycling means an energy saving of 95 percent compared to the consumption during primary production.
- We help our customers think about design and assembly, so that it is easy to pick out the aluminum parts for recycling when the application needs to be dismantled. We can also help customers when choosing, for example, alloy to optimize function and promote recirculation, says Anna Sjöstrand.

              Aluminium does not lose its quality when recycled unlike plastic, when it comes to recycling aluminium it saves more energy to make new aluminium meaning its best for environment.
