AlcoaAlcoa announced that it is has received Cradle to Cradle Silver Certification for its primary aluminum.

Cradle to Cradle Certification is an independent environmental certification process for materials and products that assesses the total impact of a product on human health and the environment.

Process improvements Alcoa has made in the way it produces aluminum – from reductions in energy use, deploying efficient water management systems, and recycling – helped earn the certification, and contribute to the Vision 2050 goals of reaching a sustainable global society in which nine billion people live well and within the limits of the planet. Alcoa has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions 44% since 1990 while doubling capacity. In the last 10 years the company has reduced its process water use by 29% and landfill waste by 70%. About 63% of Alcoa’s smelting operations worldwide are powered with renewable hydroelectric power.

Aluminum is infinitely recyclable, and nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced since 1888 is still in use today. Recycling aluminum uses 95% less energy and produces 95% less greenhouse gas emissions than making metal from new materials. “Alcoa is showing an increasing commitment to making its products safe, healthy and recyclable,” said Jay Bolus, Vice President, Technical Operations for MBDC.  Source: Alcoa
