1 Aluminium about Hydro and transport We put vehicles on an energy diet

2 Our solutions Fire engines United Kingdom Supplying aluminium to JR Industries, a producer of roller shutter doors and ladders for vehicles; Reducing vehicles weight and fuel consumption. Electric cars France Developing deep-drawn side wall panels made of aluminium body sheet; Enabling full recycling of the body; Available through Paris car-sharing system Autolib. Heating, cooling and air conditioning components Denmark, Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom and Norway All cars using aluminium in such applications; Hydro contributing to optimization of individual components; Reducing weight and improving thermal efficiency. Life-long aluminium solutions for transportation

3 Aluminium HOW? How aluminium puts vehicles on an energy diet Preferred properties in the transport sector are lightweight and strength. Aluminium delivers both. Combined with corrosion resistance, recyclability and design flexibility, it makes aluminium a material of choice to help the transport industry to improve road safety and to tackle the challenges of energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gases. The weight of a vehicle has a great influence on its fuel consumption and the associated greenhouse gas emissions. Aluminium is thus increasingly used wherever possible in a vehicle engines, bumpers, wheels, body-in-white, airconditioning systems, heat exchangers, etc. Using 100 kg of aluminium instead of heavier materials in a vehicle reduces CO 2 emissions by grams per kilometer and fuel consumption by liter per 100 kilometers. In 2012, 140 kilos of aluminium was used on average per car produced in Europe. This amount is predicted to rise to 160 kilos by 2020 and could even reach as much as 180 kilos if small and medium cars follow the evolution recorded in the upper segments of the automotive industry. When transporting freight, additional savings in fuel consumption and CO 2 emissions are realized as the load capacity of vehicles is increased. More goods can be transported and thus fewer journeys are necessary. This translates into less pollution and better environmental performance. The economic benefits of aluminium also arise from aluminium s corrosion resistance. The vehicles can be used for a long time, even in conditions that can cause serious rust problems. Moreover, aluminium is easy to clean and to repair. Maintenance is therefore kept to a minimum. How aluminium reconciles cost savings and safety gains Light, yet strong, aluminium ensures high safety standards. Aluminium is able to absorb up to 65 percent of energy upon collision as it has a high dent resistance and yield strength. Its lightweight properties decrease momentum and absorb the impact rather than deflect it. For this reason, aluminium is very well suited for front, rear and side bumpers. Moreover, extra safety features mean additional weight, which can be balanced by replacing heavy materials by aluminium. Thanks to the addition of alloying elements such as copper, manganese, magnesium or silicon, and adequate production processes, the physical and mechanical properties of aluminium can be varied in a great range. Aluminium is one of the easiest metals to work with and it can be processed into an almost unlimited range of shapes and forms, offering various design opportunities. At the end of their long life time, aluminium vehicles still have a high value, due to the excellent recyclability of aluminium. Without loosing any of its qualities, aluminium remains beneficial from both the economic and environmental point of view, as recycling saves 95 percent of the primary energy output. More than 95 percent of aluminium used in transportation is recycled at its end of life.

4 Innovation: the power of cooperation Deploying and commercializing innovative product ideas and concepts are core activities for Hydro. Innovation often takes place in joint projects with our customers but also in broader partnerships such as EU-funded research projects. From 2005 to 2009 Hydro research scientists were involved in the SuperLightCar project 1), together with academics, car manufacturers and other components suppliers from nine European countries. The project investigated how to reduce the weight of a vehicle by improving the material mix, particularly in the car body. The project resulted in a 35 percent lighter car body: a total weight saving of 100 kg. 64 percent of the body was made of aluminium. The design is suitable for mass production, with limited costs, same or improved safety performance and easy recycling at the vehicle s end-of-life. Hydro is now part of another EU-funded project the LIGHT ebody project working on pushing the concept further to apply it to electric vehicles. A lightweight body should enable electric vehicles to reduce energy consumption and extend the distance between recharges. Constant cooperation between our technology centers and customers enables better service, continuously improved quality, higher productivity and cost efficiency. Through this cooperation aluminium is becoming increasingly used in applications such as heat exchangers. We also tailor make alloys to satisfy required functional properties. In 2012 Hydro received the ÖKO-GLOBE Award 2012 for the significant improvements that the company s new aluminium sheet delivers to the efficient construction of car body parts. The award is granted by the German university of Duisburg to innovations that help reduce the environmental impact of mobility. 1)

5 Aluminium WHAT? Hydro is a major global supplier of semi-finished aluminium products to different transportation means, from road (both private and commercial vehicles) to rail and maritime. With a wide range of applications and several production sites across Europe, our Extrusion, Rolling and Precision Tubing activities offer tailor-made and cost-effective solutions to customers. Emissions reduction Recycling Cost savings Raw materials Processing Forming Lightweight transport Innovation Bauxite Bauxite is, together with energy, the main raw material for aluminium. This reddish coloured mineral is mostly found in Australia, China, Africa and South America. Bauxite is refined into alumina a white powder which looks a bit like table salt. In Brazil, Hydro operates one of the world s largest bauxite mines in Paragominas and the world s largest alumina refinery, Alunorte. Extrusion and rolling Our transport solutions are based on aluminium extrusions and rolled products. Both processes turn metal ingots into various shapes. There is virtually no end to what shape aluminium products can take to meet customer needs. Different types of alloys, processing and surface treatment can further improve the metal s properties. With 19 extrusion plants and six rolling mills, Hydro is ideally placed to supply the European market. Processing The performance of our transport applications is linked to the high quality of the metal they are made from. Our advanced technological expertise allows the production of unwrought aluminium in a wide range of shapes and alloys to fit any use. Aluminium is produced by electrolysis at high amperage. Hydro has reduced its direct emissions of greenhouse gases per tonne of primary aluminium produced by almost 70 percent since Recycling Recyclability is one of aluminium s greatest benefits. Aluminium can be recycled over and over again without loosing its initial properties. Moreover, remelting used metal requires up to 95 percent less energy than for the primary production. Our ambition is to grow faster than the market in recycling and to take a strong position in this part of the value chain. By 2020, we aim to recover 1 million metric tons (mt) of contaminated and post-consumer scrap annually.

6 Hydro is a global supplier of aluminium with activities throughout the value chain, from bauxite extraction to the production of rolled and extruded aluminium products and building systems. Based in Norway, the company employs 22,000 people in more than 40 countries. Rooted in a century of experience in renewable energy production, technology development and progressive partnerships, Hydro is committed to strengthening the viability of the customers and communities we serve.
