Life cycle of aluminium

Life cycle of aluminium


The aluminium industry broadly covers three activities: ore extraction and initial processing, transformation into semi-products – where Constellium operates – and the lifecycle of the finished goods, which can subsequently be fully recycled.

The rise in population urbanization and spending power among the emerging economies, coupled with an increasing preference for aluminium over other materials, have created ever greater demand for the material.

However, meeting that rising demand requires ensuring the industry’s sustainable growth, one where all the actors in a complex value chain meet the challenges of social and environmental diligence.
