Hammerer Aluminium bags ASI Performance Standard Certification for its re-melting and casting plant in Ranshofen

Hammerer Aluminium Industries' re-melting and casting facility in Ranshofen, Austria, has been awarded ASI Performance Standard Certification. The news arrived after Aluminium Stewardship Initiative announced that it certified Hammerer Aluminium with its performance certification.

The plant produces extrusion billets and rolling ingots from recycled aluminium scrap, which are then destined for various downstream uses in the automotive, electronics, transportation, and building and construction sectors. 

The ASI Performance Standard defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria, aiming to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain.

Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI, said: “Our congratulations go to Hammerer Aluminium Industries on their ASI Performance Standard Certification. Basing their production on recycled aluminium scrap enables the company to make a significant contribution to a sustainable aluminium value chain, and their ASI Certification demonstrates an additional level of commitment to responsible production.”

“Driven by our purpose to create better and sustainable business processes we are very proud to join the ASI community. We are focused on continuous improvement in sustainable manufacturing processes and ethical, social and environmental responsibility,” emphasized Rob van Gils, CEO of HAI-Group.

Markus Schober, Managing Director of Hammerer Aluminium Industries, added: “For us, it’s important to ensure that all aluminium pre- and post-consumer scrap is recycled efficiently to maximise aluminium recycling rates and to contribute to a climate-neutral and circular economy. We see ASI as a baseline for a sustainable aluminium value chain."

The independent, third-party audits of the Hammerer Aluminium Industries plant was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.
