Aluminum Recycling
edited by Elka Touitou

Aluminum Recycling explores the technology and processing strategies required to convert scrap aluminum and its alloys into new aluminum products and mixtures.

Features:

  • Describes commonly used aluminum alloys to explain how the product mixture impacts recycling strategies
  • Categorizes aluminum scrap by type to show how different materials affect the selection of processing technology
  • Explores both scrap beneficiation and melting technology-two concepts rarely grouped together in one book
  • Compares the advantages and disadvantages of dross processing options
  • Examines various safety and environmental practices, including automation and charging
