We are alone in creating a clean new global primary aluminium industry for a better future because making aluminum is a dirty polluting process responsible for at least 2% of the most powerful global anthropogenic CO2 equivalent emissions per year. We are an industrial technology company with a solution to one of the most polluting industries on the planet. The primary aluminum industry emits 1.1 gigatons of greenhouse gases (GHG) in a single year and consumes more than 900 TWh of electricity. If primary aluminum were a country, it would be the world’s fifth-largest consumer of electricity. Along with CO2, primary aluminum production also releases millions of tons of perfluorocarbon GHG gases, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides and volatile chemicals. Additionally, each year, refining alumina for smelters results in 175 million tons of caustic red mud waste so toxic that must be permanently stored.
To counter this environmental catastrophe, Aluminum Technologies has developed the CCR process to decarbonize primary aluminum production. CCR produces raw aluminum metal with no direct GHG emissions while using one-third less electricity. CCR eliminates the caustic red mud from refining bauxite and instead produces a silica-rich pozzolanic byproduct that can be used to partially replace cement in high-performance concrete applications.
