Lifecycle of Aluminium
Promoting responsible production, sourcing, and stewardship in the global aluminium value chain
The aluminium sector accounts for 1.1 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions, around 2 percent of the world’s total.
Primary aluminium is made from bauxite, refined to make alumina before being smelted to make aluminium. Aluminium can be formed into various products by extruding, rolling or casting.
Around 60% of the aluminium sector’s GHG emissions are from the production of electricity consumed during the aluminium smelting process.
Construction, transport, marine and electronics are just some ways aluminium is used. Aluminium is lightweight and strong enabling its use in the aviation, aerospace, shipping and rail industries.
Aluminium is durable and can be infinitely recycled, making it a popular choice for the renewable energy sector.
SOLIDAL® adheres to a green economy whereby promoting and supplying sustainable aluminium products are central to our values.READ MORE ABOUT SOLIDAL ALUMINIUM STEWARDSHIP INITIATIVE
