The aluminum recycling process begins with the collection of said material by third parties, for its subsequent transfer to our recycling plant, where it is separated, separated, cleaned and pressed creating large blocks.
The aluminum melts, again creating sheets of this material, ready for a new use.
TThis whole recycling process is much cheaper and consumes much less energy than the production of aluminum from the electrolysis of alumina (Al203), which first has to be extracted from the minimum of bauxite and then has to be refined using the Bayer process..Recycling scrap aluminum requires only 5% of the energy that would be consumed to produce aluminum from the mine.
Aluminum, after iron and steel, is the most used metal in the world, and it is one of the materials that we recycle the least. For this reason, it is very important to make people aware that aluminum must be recycled, which we find in containers, in the aluminum foil itself in our homes, and in cars, boats, buildings and many other uses, at an industrial level.
