Jupiter Aluminum’s melting operations produce 3.000’s series alloys. Our products are almost 100% aluminum scrap based. We have developed a unique process that enables the company to offer one of the highest scrap to finished 3000’s series ratios in the world. We believe that beyond a good product, it is essential to provide clean products to our customers. Our emission control systems capture nearly 100% of our emissions. Coupled with using the Jupiter Oxygen’s patented oxy-fuel technology, our carbon footprint per pound produced is among the lowest in the world.
Responsible sourcing and responsible production have always been at the heart of what Jupiter Aluminum Corporation and its employees stand for. We believe that responsibility goes along with accountability and that conducting business requires a full compliance with standards that contribute to developing a more sustainable society. We are committed to respecting the environment and thrive to constantly working to reduce our carbon footprint.
Jupiter Oxygen’s patented oxy-fuel combustion installed in each of its melting furnaces participates to the reduction of our carbon footprint. For more information, see: www.jupiteroxygen.com
Jupiter Aluminum is a proud member of the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative.

Section 13(p) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (added by Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act) and Rule 13p-1 under the Exchange Act (the Conflict Minerals Rule) impose reporting obligations on SEC registrants whose manufactured products contain so-called “conflict minerals” that are necessary to the functionality or production of those products. As used herein, the term “Conflict Minerals” includes columbite-tantalite, cassiterite, gold, wolframite, and their derivatives tantalum, tin and tungsten sourced from the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries.
Although Jupiter Aluminum Corporation (“Jupiter Aluminum”) is not a SEC registrant, we recognize that certain of our customers may be SEC registrants with reporting obligations pursuant the Conflict Minerals Rule. We therefore establish this Conflict Minerals Policy in response to customer need and further because Jupiter Aluminum believes in Sustainability, Leadership and Quality, and we are committed to acting responsibly with respect to health, safety and the environment.
Jupiter Aluminum is an American producer of secondary aluminum (aluminum recycling). Aluminum products are produced from recycled aluminum scrap (about 95%) and pure aluminum (about 5%). Raw material is exclusively purchased from North American aluminum suppliers.
Jupiter Aluminum uses strict aluminum scrap specifications that define the types of scrap units that can be used in the manufacturing process. Aluminum scrap series such as Remelt Scrap Ingots, No Ink Litho Sheet, Aluminum Light Ink Litho Sheet, Aluminum Wire and Cable (bare) and Old Coils, MLC (Mixed Low Copper, Aluminum Clipping, and Solids), Segregated Aluminum Alloy Clippings and Solids, Used Beverage Cans, Painted 3004 Aluminum, and Painted Aluminum Siding.
Jupiter Aluminum does not buy any raw materials from the Democratic Republic of Congo or from any adjoining countries, nor are Conflict Minerals otherwise necessary to the functionality or production of Jupiter Aluminum products.
