Description

The carbon anodes produced through the aluminum electrolysis process using petroleum coke are primarily applied in the aluminum production industry. These anodes are essential components in the Hall-Héroult process for extracting aluminum from its oxide, alumina. The carbon anodes serve as conductors of electricity and help in the reduction of alumina to aluminum metal. When utilizing this LCA data for aluminum electrolysis carbon anode production associated with petroleum coke from 2007, acknowledge that PA (Production Allocation) data is sourced from statistical databases while SA (Site-specific Allocation) is mainly derived from existing literature. The background data, crucial for the assessment, are acquired from the CAS RCEES 2018 database localized for China, reflecting the specific energy, materials, transportation, and waste management practices. To ensure accurate LCA results, users should take into account the year of the data collection, technological variations since 2007, and the regional context of the data. It is also recommended to consult current literature and databases to verify the relevance and update any outdated information.
