Aluminum Week: Global Industry Emissions Drop While Production Grows
The International Aluminium Institute released new data this week showing that for the first time, total greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from the global aluminum sector did not grow, even though aluminum production grew by 3.9% in 2022 (most recent available data). GHG emissions intensity of primary aluminum production (the average quantity of emissions from the production of a pound of primary aluminum) has been declining globally since 2019. The carbon footprint of making aluminum in North America has declined by about half over the past 30 years.
A third-party, critical-reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA) report found that the carbon footprint of aluminum production and recycling in North America was cut in half since 1991.
