Restora, our low carbon aluminium brand, is the result of bringing together our manufacturing expertise in aluminium, innovative technologies and our commitment towards Net Zero Carbon by 2050. Under Restora brand, we offer have product lines – Restora (low carbon aluminium) and Restora Ultra (ultra-low carbon aluminium). We can tailor-make both Restora and Restora Ultra as Billets, Primary Foundry Alloy (PFA), Wire Rods, Slabs, Ingots, and more, customized to the needs of the end-use industries.
Restora is being manufactured at our world-class aluminium smelters using renewable energy. Restora has a GHG emission intensity that is well below 4 tonnes of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) per tonne of aluminium manufactured – the global threshold for aluminium to be considered as low carbon aluminium.
Restora Ultra, is made from recovered aluminium through Vedanta’s partnership with Runaya Refining, one of India’s fast-growing manufacturing start-ups focussed on creating innovative solutions for the resources sector and leverages patented technology licensed from TAHA International S.A. for processing aluminium dross at Vedanta’s plants. Under the Restora Ultra product line, we offer aluminium recovered from dross (a by-product of the aluminium smelting process) that is then cast into premium-grade products. Restora Ultra has an even lower carbon footprint that is amongst the lowest in the world.
Vedanta Aluminium is the first major non-ferrous Indian metals producer to manufacture low carbon primary aluminium for customers worldwide. Both products are verified as low-carbon aluminium post assessment by an independent, global verification assurance firm.
