Innovations in the aluminium industry

This map illustrates announcements, investment decisions, and operations for various innovations across the aluminium sector globally. These novel solutions support the IAI’s three GHG pathways to emissions reduction for the aluminium industry.

Around the world, the aluminium industry is investing in projects and new technologies and building critical partnerships that play a key role in meeting environmental targets for 2050.

These include contracts for renewable energy, particularly wind, solar and hydropower; the creation of virtual batteries within smelters; the smart use of fuel sources, such as hydrogen and recycled steam; the use of lighter vehicles for transporting goods; and ideas for taking the recycling agenda further.

Current Statistics

Primary Aluminium Production

Primary aluminium is aluminium tapped from electrolytic cells or pots during the electrolytic reduction of metallurgical alumina.

The Aluminium Story

Aluminium’s power is in its versatility. From revolutionising transport and cities to its infinite recyclability, explore everything there is to know about this resourceful metal.

Industry & Sustainability

In 2021 the IAI published the Aluminium Sector Greenhouse Gas Pathways to 2050 report, which sets out technology pathways to emission reductions, in line with the Paris Agreement goals. At COP28, the IAI launched the Aluminium Industry GHG Initiative, which commits to transparently and publicly tracking all its member companies’ ambitions and progress in greenhouse gas reduction.
