ATLANTA, Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Novelis Inc., the world leader in aluminum rolling and recycling, today announced GreenCircle has independently verified that three of its alloys produced for the building and construction markets contain up to 99% recycled content. Through recycling, Novelis preserves the value of aluminum alloys to maximize the environmental benefits of increased recycled content across its product portfolio.

The certification includes Novelis' 3105, 3004, and 3025 alloys, which are produced at its Davenport, Iowa; Richmond, Virginia; and Uhrichsville, Ohio, facilities. These continuous cast facilities serve the commercial transportation and building & construction markets, producing flat-rolled aluminum sheet that contains between 77% and 99% recycled content.

"At Novelis, recycling and sustainability are central to our values, business model and purpose of shaping a sustainable world together," said Ganesh Panneer, Vice President, Operations, Novelis North America. "We are committed to transparency and to being a brand our customers can trust, so pursuing GreenCircle's Recycled Content certification was a natural step for us."
