Ducab Metals Business Launches Eco-Aluminium Rods, Revolutionizing Sustainability in Industry

DMB (Ducab Metals Business), committed to leading the “hard to abate” aluminium industry into the green economy, today announced the launch of its Green Aluminium Rod offering to its metals portfolio which will be in compliances to EU’s CBAM regulation. 

DMB uses recycled aluminium to manufacture Green Aluminium Rods, which reduces energy usage and carbon emissions significantly compared to primary aluminium production. This sustainable approach results in only 0.5 tons of CO2-equivalents per ton for DMB's product. Recycling aluminium, the foundation of DMB's offerings, reduces energy consumption by 95% and greenhouse gas emissions by 97% compared to extracting new aluminium. Each tonne of recycled aluminium saves 9 tonnes of CO2 emissions and 4 tonnes of bauxite, equivalent to the emissions from driving over 3,000 miles. Aluminium is infinitely recyclable, which means each recycling loop further conserves resources and energy, reflecting DMB's dedication to environmental sustainability and the circular economy.

Mohamed Al Ahmedi, Chief Executive Officer, Ducab Metals Business, remarked,  

“We embrace our role as frontrunners of a green transition through our Green Aluminium Rod production. DMB has developed a comprehensive roadmap that navigates the traditionally hard-to-abate aluminium sector, outlining initiatives that foster a sustainable, low-carbon economy. Central to this vision is aluminium's role in a carbon-neutral world. As we anticipate the launch of full-scale Green Aluminium Rod production in Q4 of this year, we focus on reducing emissions, promoting 'low carbon' aluminium, enhancing carbon footprint transparency, and championing circularity. We are also committed to implementing sustainability and fair trade. Through our holistic approach and commitment, we confidently elevate aluminium as an environmentally friendly material for the 21st century and beyond “. 

“In Düsseldorf, during the partnership agreement proceedings, Mr. Piotr Mirek, Member of the Management Board at TELE-FONIKA Kable and Board Director of the Supply Chain and Investment Office at JDR Cable Systems, emphasized the synergy between the energy sector and sustainable materials. He stated, 'The intersection of aluminium's crucial role in the energy transition with our mission for TFKable Group's development of new technologies and innovative cable production solutions, alongside the acquisition of highly skilled employees, ultimately enabling participation in renewable energy projects, underscores the strategic foundation of our partnership with DMB. This collaboration is deeply rooted in our commitment to innovation, trust, and sustainable development. Together, we aim to expand our market presence and ensure that our contributions to the energy sector embody responsible and sustainable growth, bridging the energy divide with forward-looking and environmentally conscious solutions.”

Promoting Circularity

DMB’s commitment to a zero-waste philosophy and sustainable sourcing practices is supported by thorough due diligence and a robust Code of Conduct for suppliers. As sustainability becomes an increasingly crucial global objective, DMB is resolute in enhancing green production practices that contribute to the aluminium industry's broader environmental and sustainable goals.  

By prioritizing the use of recycled materials and adopting low-carbon production methods, DMB is setting new benchmarks for environmental responsibility within the sector. This commitment is further strengthened by the support and partnership of forward-thinking companies like TELE-FONIKA Kable, highlighting a collaborative effort toward more sustainable business practices. Looking ahead, DMB remains dedicated to leading by example and demonstrating that innovation and sustainability can coexist to create a greener and more responsible industry that contributes to a more sustainable world for future generations.
