Sustainable use of aluminium

David Earle, Council for Aluminium in Building

Venue: BAWA Filton

Wednesday November 26, 2008 at 19:30

The substantial amount of energy expended in the built environment raises challenges which in many cases are best met by the use of aluminium. This talk considers the sustainable use of aluminium in buildings, the use of energy (much of it hydroelectric) to produce aluminium and the exceptional energy efficiency that is attainable by recycling. Since aluminium is abundant and endlessly recyclable, supplies are effectively inexhaustible. Moreover, recycling reduces energy consumption by over 90 % in comparison to production from ore.

The talk will be followed by a discussion and buffet.

Members and non-members are welcome.
