Capral introduces LocAl lower-carbon aluminium for Australian transport equipment manufacturers

Capral will leverage the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show to showcase LocAL, a lower-carbon primary aluminium option available across its locally manufactured extruded aluminium products.

LocAL provides Australian manufacturers access to cleaner, greener, more sustainable aluminium for their projects.

The LocAl offer includes two lower-carbon aluminium options: LocAl Green with carbon emissions of 8kg CO2e/kg Al and LocAl Super Green at 4kg CO2e/kg Al (based on Scope 1 and Scope 2 emission ex-smelter) – amongst the lowest-carbon aluminium available globally.

Luke Hawkins, General Manager of Supply and& Industrial Solutions, says: “At Capral, we want to be ready to help forward-thinking businesses in the transport sector get ahead of the curve, making access to lower-carbon extruded aluminium products possible for these manufacturers.”

LocAl aluminium is available to extrude custom-designed aluminium sections and across Capral’s standard extrusions, including geometrics and transport sections.

“It is ready; all our customers need to do is ask,” Hawkins adds.

Capral is ambitious about offering LocAl to Australian manufacturers and is hopeful that the demand for lower-carbon aluminium will continue to grow.
