Lightweight, strong, durable, and infinitely recyclable, aluminium is the sustainable material of choice. In addition to contributing billions of dollars to the global economy, aluminium supports countless supply chains worldwide. Yet, due to its energy-intensive production and refinement procedures, claimed to contribute significantly to global carbon emissions, aluminium is under heightened scrutiny, much like all other manufactured products.
Aluminium producers worldwide are adopting environmentally friendly production methods in response to being placed under the spotlight on climate change. In order to accelerate their decarbonization efforts, they are shifting to renewable energy, investing in green technologies, and even studying carbon capture and storage solutions. However, across the entire aluminium industry, investing in recycling is now the preferred initiative for reducing carbon emissions during the manufacturing process.
As part of its effort to shed more light on the green initiatives that are changing the industry, AlCircle has launched its e-magazine titled "Green Initiatives: Road to a sustainable aluminium industry," which promotes the many ways in which the industry is producing or planning for low-carbon aluminium production. The e-Magazine includes interviews with well-known aluminium industry associates and related industry stalwarts on the trending topic. They have also shared their insights into green initiatives in the aluminium industry and other related information required for the transformation.
Low-carbon aluminium is referred to as environmentally friendly due to its production power source or percentage of recycled content. The International Aluminum Institute (IAI) reports that the mix of power supplies used in aluminium production is changing. While 39% of the world's aluminium is now produced by hydropower, 50% is produced using coal power. In contrast, just 15% of the world's production of non-aluminium uses hydropower as a source of energy.
The market for green aluminium is still in its early stages. Manufacturers continue to set environmental responsibility goals for their supply chains. Aluminium products labelled as low-carbon will become increasingly appealing in industries that rely heavily on aluminium supply. Consumer electronics, auto manufacturing, construction, and consumer packaged goods are making efforts to keep their products low-carbon so that they can comply with government regulations and meet consumer expectations. The global economies that rely heavily on aluminium are putting pressure on producers to switch to a more sustainable production process.
