GHG emission reduction technology in the global aluminium industry

Around the world, the aluminium industry is investing in projects, new technologies and building critical partnerships that are playing 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.

These novel solutions support the three GHG pathways to emissions reduction for the aluminium industry.
