Natur‐Al™ products are made with energy from 100% renewable sources at Century’s Norðurál Grundartangi aluminum plant in Iceland.  While the product line has been in development over several years it was officially inaugurated in 2020.  The aluminum will be supplied to Hammerer by Glencore.

Natur‐Al™ aluminum has direct CO₂ levels below two tons of CO₂ per ton of aluminum – one of the lowest CO₂ footprints in the world for the metal.  The total CO₂ footprint is four tons per ton of aluminum, less than one‐quarter of the industry average. 

To achieve these levels requires strict adherence to the highest standards in the sourcing of bauxite and alumina, the exclusive use of green energy from hydroelectric and geothermal sources, and seamless operation of the production process.
