EU and industry leaders have launched a new European Joint Undertaking on Bio-based Industries (BBI). The aim is to trigger investments and create a competitive market for bio-based products and materials sourced locally and “Made in EuropeR
This is because making aluminium from the raw material, bauxite, uses a lot of energy - while recycling the metal through a simple re-melt process is a massive 20 times more energy efficient. Put another way, recycling uses just 5% of the energy needed for primary production.
And because aluminium can be recycled over and over again without losing its properties, the metal has a lifetime of different uses: about 75% of all the aluminium ever produced is still in circulation.
The challenge now is to raise recycling rates for the aluminium we use as individuals - mainly drinks cans, foil trays and aerosol cans. Find out how we do it in Ireland ...
