Sustainability knowledge shared

Technal will speaks at the AJ Summit, hosted online by Architects’ Journal, on March 25, where it will explain how sustainable aluminium solutions can help to harvest green building scheme points and credits.

The AJ Summit 2021 will focus on how architects and their industry colleagues can respond to the climate emergency by embracing the carbon agenda and the principles of a circular economy. The CPD-accredited event will present an opportunity for architects to learn how to incorporate climate-responsible working methods into their everyday practice.

Jean-Marc Moulin, sustainability director for Hydro Extrusions, parent company to Technal, will be speaking at the event entitled ‘Sustainable Architectural Aluminium with Technal – the environmental benefits of choosing aluminium products, now and in the future’.

He said: “Aluminium is a permanent material that can be recycled over and over without losing any of its characteristics and has a high recycling rate in the construction industry. We believe it is important to highlight what the current Green Building Schemes are and how sustainable aluminium solutions can help architects, designers and specifiers meet those environmental credentials.

“Sustainability can be complex and seminars like this will help architects discover the future of recycling and the meaning behind terms such as pre- and post-consumer scrap. It will also be useful in understanding what products are available on the market and how to identify high-quality materials.”

To meet the growing demand for more sustainable products on all building projects, all Technal UK windows, doors, sliding systems and facades are now produced with Hydro Circal 75R, the high-quality recycled aluminium, or Hydro Redux, a certified low-carbon aluminium.
