The report helps the participants to understand the industry in a better way and align business resources more efficiently.
How are aluminium ingots produced
The aluminium ingots production process is quite complex, labor and cost intensive. Aluminium ingots production process starts with the mining of bauxite. Bauxite is a primary source of aluminium which is crushed and converted into alumina. During the next step, alumina undergoes reduction process in an aluminium smelting plant. In this process, liquid aluminium is obtained which is cast in the form of ingots. Ingots is the primary form of aluminium which is then converted into alloy and cast into various shapes.
Aluminium ingots industry has been undergoing modernization. Companies have adopted innovative manufacturing/production techniques to optimize emissions. There are players who are now using renewable energy-based production techniques which are sustainable and produce very low CO2 equivalent. Example of such companies who have optimized their production process and significantly reduced their carbon footprint are Rio Tinto, Norsk Hydro ASA, Trimet Aluminium, Rusal and others. CO2 Emission per ton of aluminium – (scope 1&2), for each of these companies is in the range (3 – 6) tons. However, there are still companies who rely on the coal-powered smelting. These companies emit a significantly higher CO2 equivalent. CO2 Emission per ton of aluminium – (scope 1&2), for coal-powered companies is over 12 tons.
In modern times, there are strict government norms that aluminium ingots companies have to follow in developed regions like North America and Europe. However, the developing nations still continue to use coal-powered smelting process which is not good for the environment. In present times, there is a notable difference between the average emission caused in the aluminium ingots production in the developed and developing nations. For example, the cradle to gate mission of India and China based companies are relatively higher (mostly over 17 tons of CO2 equivalent per ton of aluminium). Reducing the carbon footprint and bringing in renewable energy-based production techniques has been the key to succeed in this industry and compete on a global level. The study provides details on various production processes, their advantages and drawbacks.
