Lifecycle of Aluminium

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.

Engineered Systems with
Repurposing & Recycling in Mind.

It is essential to understand the motivations of builders and building owners when it comes to recycling building materials at the end of their lifespan. The ease of removing and re-recycling materials can be the deciding factor between choosing to recycle or repurpose them, rather than sending them to a landfill.

Consider the daunting task of removing kilometres of organic glues and double-sided tapes from the back of pre-coated solid aluminium cassette modules. Often, the commercial incentive to dump the materials in a landfill outweighs the labor cost required to recycle them.

At SOLIDAL®, all building envelope systems are mechanically pre-fabricated prior to installation on the building facade. This approach is crucial not only for the long-term performance and durability of the products but also for promoting repurposing and recycling at the end of their lifespan.

SOLIDAL® fabricated products are designed and manufactured to allow for easy removal and recycling. This, combined with SOLIDAL® eCO2® low carbon alloys, is a significant step towards a more sustainable future for facades.
