Recycling aluminium uses only 5% of the energy required to process aluminium from its raw ore, Bauxite. CO2 emissions are also drastically cut with recycling, releasing only 5% of the CO2 released when processing from Bauxite. Aluminium's high value per tonne compared to other waste materials ensures that there are many commercial operations set up to collect and recycle aluminium.
