Does recycling make a difference when applied to the world and materials of architectural design? It seems every small “green” move matters. PurOptima, a global leader in sustainable interior glass walls and doors, has announced its very own brand of sustainable aluminum Hydro CIRCAL now provides the lowest embodied carbon on the market.

Thanks to advances in sourcing, sorting, and traceability of post-consumer aluminum, PurOptima has proved it’s possible to lower their carbon footprint even further: Hydro CIRCAL contains a minimum of 75 percent recycled post-consumer material.

“We are constantly considering the future and our own role within it, that’s why we’re increasingly focusing on how we manufacture and consume as a business,” Kevin Mayer, US Country Manager for PurOptima said. “Designing products and processes that incorporate re-usability is key to how we work now and moving forward.”
