Recycling Aluminum

Check this out! It’s a very interesting video about aluminum cans recycling! And how this process is one of the most ecological in world! Aluminun can be recycled on its 100%, it’s a great raw material.

Aluminum recycling is the process by which scrap aluminum can be reused in products after its initial production. The process involves simply re-melting the metal, which is far less expensive and energy intensive than creating new. Recycling scrap aluminum requires only 5% of the energy used to make new aluminium.

Sources for recycled aluminium include foundries, aircraft, automobiles, bicycles, boats, computers, cookware, gutters, siding, wire and many other products that require a strong light weight material, or a material with high thermal conductivity. As recycling does not damage the metal’s structure, aluminium can be recycled indefinitely and still be used to produce any product for which new aluminium could have been used.

Great, doesn´t it?
