A Short Note on Implications of Aluminium Demand and Supply

Author(s): Jackson Clive

Since aluminium is a metal that is used a lot and uses a lot of energy, it has been included in most energy models and scenarios. Energy, water, and climate change are all connected to material demand and supply. In this review, we foster four worldwide and local cycle based situations for the material-energy-water nexus joined with CO2 outflows and applied to aluminium. This study employs the following scenarios: Equitability World (EW), Market World (MW), Toward Resilience (TR), Security First (SF), and Global CO2 emissions are expected to rise as a result of rising demand for aluminium, according to the findings. However, secondary supply of aluminum, energy efficiency, and cleaner energy supply technologies are expected to rise over the next 30 years. In terms of global climate change, the policy and sustainability (TR and EW) scenarios are ultimately the best because they have the lowest CO2 emissions but also the highest demand for aluminum and energy. It is subsequently important to execute cleaner energy supply and energy productivity advancements at high rates in aluminum industry to moderate conceivable expansion in CO2 emanations.
