Description

aluminum scrap, post-consumer When using this data set for Life Cycle Assessment, it is important to consider that it represents a process with geographical relevance for China, with specific energy mixes, particularly coal-based electricity generation. Users should align the system boundaries of their LCA study to include the stages of transport to the alloy production site, infrastructure of the production plant, chemicals and energy production, wastewater treatment, direct emissions, and scrap collection. The durability of building and equipment should be considered with a life span of 40 and 8 years, respectively. The European data sets used for the infrastructure and other background processes may require adaptation to reflect local conditions if applied in another geographical context.
