Title: Aluminium sheet; primary production; production mix, at plant; aluminium semi-finished sheet product, including primary production, transformation and recycling (Location: RER)

Description

The environmental data have been collected through an extensive environmental survey, organised among the European aluminium industry, focussing on the year 2005 and covering EU-27 countries as well as EFTA countries (Norway, Iceland, and Switzerland). From this survey, European average values, i.e. foreground data, have been calculated for the direct inputs and outputs of the various aluminium processes. Using the GaBi software system, the foreground data have been combined within LCI models integrating background LCI data on energy supply systems, ancillary processes and materials. From these models, generic European LCI data sets have been developed respectively for the production of primary and recycled aluminium ingots and for the transformation of aluminium ingots into semi-finished products, i.e. sheet, foil and extruded products. For the development of the LCI data related to primary aluminium production, a specific model for the electricity production has been developed. ...
