Natur-Al™ aluminum products are produced at our ASI-certified Norðurál Grundartangi aluminum plant in Iceland, with energy from 100 percent renewable sources, allowing us to achieve CO₂ levels below one-fourth of the industry average, or 4 tonnes CO₂ per tonne of aluminum, one of the lowest CO₂ footprints in the world.
