How to create a climate-neutral, circular and resource-efficient production of both primary and secondary aluminum.
The aim is to create the conditions for a climate-neutral, circular and resource-efficient production of aluminum by separating pollutant elements for both primary and secondary aluminum.
The goal of the project is to develop an efficient treatment technology for both primary aluminum and secondary aluminum and to be value-creating for the users of the purification process.
At the end of the project, a purification process for carbon dioxide-free primary aluminum production with a high Fe content must be demonstrated on a lab scale.
For secondary aluminum purification, process paths must be demonstrated with intended base- or master-alloys identified, linked to industrial needs.
For durability and circularity, separate residues, such as filtrate, decanted melt or solid phase, must have deposits such as base- or master-alloys or other products and analyzed from a scaling perspective.
