Did you know that 75% of aluminium produced since the invention of the Hall-Héroult electrolysis production process, in 1988, is still in use today? In addition, the recycling of aluminium – known as second processing – requires only 5% of the necessary energy to refine aluminium from the ore.

Therefore, it is only natural for AluQuébec to encourage the reuse and recycling of aluminium to emphasize its lifecycle. In that optic, the Valorization and Recycling of aluminium workgroup was created with the objective to put in place a strategy to value aluminium scrap and promote the emergence of circular economy.
