The Polestar 0 project aims to create a completely climate-neutral car by 2030, which means that all sources of carbon emissions throughout the supply chain must be eliminated. As partners, Stena Aluminium and Polestar will develop a commercially viable recycled aluminium alloy produced without carbon emissions.
Today, the alloys produced by Stena Aluminium already have a low carbon footprint, averaging 0.7 tonnes of carbon emissions per tonne of aluminium produced. The aim of this partnership is to produce an alloy with a zero carbon footprint, which Polestar can then use in the production of a completely climate-neutral car.
"The Polestar 0 project aligns with Stena's sustainability ambitions and strategies. It's of great advantage that Stena, Polestar, and other partners are cooperating in our collective efforts to eliminate carbon emissions. Since our goal is to find climate-neutral ways to produce products, it's likely that more partners will become involved. These emissions are not only associated with Stena's processes but also originate earlier in the supply chain," says Erik Petré, Head of Sales and Purchasing at Stena Aluminium.
"The Polestar 0 project is all about pushing the boundaries of sustainable transportation, and we are constantly seeking partners who share our vision and commitment to this goal. That's why we are pleased to welcome Stena Aluminium as a new partner in this project. Their expertise in recycled aluminium is a crucial factor in ensuring that materials can be reused, making them an excellent fit for the Polestar 0 project as we work towards our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero," says Hans Pehrson, Head of the Polestar 0 project.
