Aluminium is 100% recyclable and has all the properties intact after the recycling process too. Moreover, recycling aluminium uses only 5% of the energy which is required to create new aluminium. Also, the process emits only 5% greenhouse gases in comparison. In Australia itself, over 2 billion aluminium cans are recycled every year.
Aluminium is generally made from Bauxite ore which is mined, converted to alumina and smelted over 700°C to make aluminium. This whole process is expensive and needs a lot of energy and fuel.
