Recycling aluminium

Converting bauxite (raw material for aluminium) to aluminium takes a lot of electricity. . But almost all aluminium can be recycled without loss of quality and for less than 5 percent of the energy it takes to generate the metal from scratch. As a result, aluminium can be considered a sustainable material. In addition, aluminium is easy to process, lightweight and strong.
  • Around 8.5% of the earth's crust consists of bauxite

  • Almost all aluminium can be recycled

  • Aluminium used in construction has a lifespan of at least 60 years

  • Around 75% of all aluminium produced is still in use
