Description

Primary aluminum production is an industrial process that involves extracting aluminum metal from bauxite ore. The primary aluminum ingots produced through this process are utilized as a raw material in various industries, including the manufacturing of transportation vehicles, construction materials, packaging products, consumer electronics, and power transmission lines. This data set particularly represents the aluminum ingots intended for such widespread industrial applications. When using this data set, it's important to apply it in the context of the year 2008, as the resource and energy consumption data for primary aluminum production are derived from the 'Non-Ferrous Metals Industry Yearbook' statistics of that year. Methodological consistency should be maintained for LCA studies, ensuring that adopted processes and technological indicators reflect the production techniques and technical standards reported by typical enterprises and published literature of the time. Consideration should be given to potential updates in production methods and emissions factors if used for current assessments.
