Extrusion & Energy Education

The use of extruded aluminum in educational building projects serves as an educational opportunity for students. Using sustainable products opens students’ eyes to renewable resources, energy demand, carbon and emission reductions.

Extrusions offset energy demand to move towards net-zero energy and carbon emission goals.

Aluminum support structures offer lower maintenance costs and chemical consumption compared to other materials while promoting recyclability, life cycle solutions, and avoidance of red-list materials. Further value is added with energy production to offset energy demand costs. Aluminum support structures result in lower maintenance costs compared to other materials.
