Alcoa Shines Bright at Super Bowl XLVI

February 2, 2012

Kawneer Architectural Products Featured At Lucas Oil Stadium; Alcoa
Foundation Promotes Recycling

PITTSBURGH–Alcoa (NYSE: AA) will be at Super Bowl XLVI this Sunday in Indianapolis,
Ind., in more ways than one. The award-winning Lucas Oil Stadium, host
site of the Super Bowl football game, features several products made by
Alcoa’s Kawneer architectural aluminum products business. Alcoa
Foundation is also contributing to the big game by helping the City of
Indianapolis “go-green” by encouraging football fans to recycle their
aluminum beverage cans.

Every visitor—including the lucky 67,000 fans with Super Bowl
tickets—will pass through Kawneer’s 500 Tuffline® brand entrances as
they go into the stadium. The Kawneer brand of frames, doors and
hardware is designed to withstand high-traffic areas. In addition, more
than 225,000 square feet of Kawneer’s curtain wall, which uses glass
extensively, provides spectators with a magnificent view of the
Indianapolis skyline from their seats.

Kawneer’s mark on Lucas Oil Stadium continues on the interior, where
even more entrances and curtain wall systems are featured, as well as
Kawneer sliding doors. These recyclable aluminum architectural products
were produced at Alcoa plants in Springdale, Arkansas; Bloomsburg,
Pennsylvania; and Visalia, California.

While Kawneer products have helped with the design of the stadium, Alcoa
Foundation is making sure fans have a place to recycle their aluminum
beverage cans. Through an Alcoa Foundation grant, the Indiana Recycling
Coalition has been working closely with the 2012 Super Bowl
Environmental Programs Committee to ”keep score” on recycling. In
addition, the investment has enabled the coalition to purchase recycling
bins and place them throughout the stadium and other public venues,
making it easy for people to dispose of their recyclable aluminum
containers responsibly. After the game, the bins will be donated to
non-profit groups and youth sports programs in Indiana.

The Alcoa Foundation’s investment focuses on increasing awareness about
the infinite recyclability of aluminum beverage cans, while also
encouraging greater awareness about recycling “away from home” and “at
home” while watching Super Bowl XLVI. The aluminum cans collected and
recycled this weekend in Indianapolis and across the U.S. will be back
on store shelves in 60 days as new aluminum beverage cans.
