2 Consider:

  • Consider:
    • Reuse of aluminium curtain walling
    • Recycled aluminium which uses significant less energy to produce saving on CO2 generation
    • Recycling aluminium with coatings:
    • There is a small financial difference in the value of scrap aluminium based on the presence of coatings or not
    • Melting of PPC, PVDF or PVF2 coated aluminium will burn off coatings and generate polluting emissions
    • Acid dipping of PPC, PVDF or PVF2 coated aluminium will create a sludge that is hazardous and expensive to dispose of
    • Scraping or sanding of PPC or PVDF or PVF2 coating from aluminium will create particulates that may be released to the atmosphere, or micro-plastics that if not collected thoroughly may find their way to drains or watercourses and eventually to the oceans.
    • Anodic oxide coatings being aluminium oxide does not generate the same residues and so simplifies recycling
    • Uncoated aluminium does not generate the same residues and so simplifies recycling
  • Embodied Energy:
    • 97.1 Gj/t (twice that of steel) 138
  • Substitute:
    • Recycled aluminium in place of virgin Aluminium to reduce energy consumed by 19/20ths  or 95%
  • Value Engineer:
    • Scrap value: (at small quantities with non-specialist metal merchant Oct ‘07)
      • Unpainted/uncoated scrap aluminium: £1010.00/tonne
      • Painted/coated scrap aluminium £950.00/tonne
  • Minimise: Use of virgin aluminium if recycled is available
  • Avoid:
    • Aluminium made with high carbon energy sources
    • Excessive use of aluminium; whilst it is readily available in natural state aluminium ore or bauxite, it requires considerable energy to extract from ore, and fossil fuel energy generates CO2
    • Coating aluminium: It reduces the value of scrap by a small margin.

4 Resourceful:

Resource Efficiency Issues:

Industry/Sector/Company Initiatives:

  • Stewardship:
  • The UK aluminium sector regards Stewardship too complicated and difficult to implement and would become too restrictive.
  • Their sector cannot be any worse than the timber sector and Stewardship is well established whilst not comprehensive there yet.
  • Metals Stewardship has been discussed at Eden Project and pursued with copper cladding materials.

Reduce:

  • Use of Virgin Aluminium used
  • Weight by using aluminium in preference to steel, but aluminium has high deflection compared to steel
  • Less self-weight to carry may help reduce the size of sections to do a job

Reclaim:

  • Dismantle for reclaim for reuse (build it with the right fasteners)
  • Protect surfaces and sections from damage

Reuse:

  • Reuse dismantled and reclaimed systems

Recycle:

  • Recycled Aluminium uses 5% (1/20th) of the energy to make virgin aluminium

Recycling:

  • Use recycled aluminium in preference to virgin aluminium, significant reduction in CO2 generated in manufacture.
  • Design for recycling:
  • Avoid coatings as they are chemically intensive to remove and generate waste residues.
  • Coated with PPC and PVF2 are slightly more difficult to remove than anodising
  • Anodizing is an alloy of aluminium and is slightly more readily recycled
  • Mill finish is most easy to recycle but not everybody likes the oxides that form on unfinished aluminium
  • Mill finished aluminium reflects the colour of the sky: blue, white, grey or sunrise, sun and sunset
  • Reflections off mill finish or silver coating can cause glare, distraction, overheating, migraine

Recover:

  • Not Applicable

6 Waste Issues:

  • Hazardous waste:
  • Deleterious Substances:
  • Waste management:
  • Waste statistics:
  • Waste Costs:
    • Scrap value: (at small quantities with non-specialist metal merchant Oct ‘07)
    • Unpainted/uncoated scrap aluminium: £1010.00/tonne
    • Painted/coated scrap aluminium £950.00/tonne
  • Waste issues:
    • The energy used and CO2 generated in making aluminium should not be squandered by allowing the metal to be landfilled.
