Aluminium recycling - Wikipedia
Aluminium recycling is the process by which scrap aluminium can be reused in products after its initial production. The process involves simply re-melting the metal, which is far less expensive and energy-intensive than creating new aluminium through the electrolysis of aluminium oxide (Al 2 O 3), which must first be mined from bauxite ore and then refined using the Bayer process.
