The Queensland Government’s Department of Environment and Heritage Protection says that every Australian contributes around two tonnes of waste each year. This is based on the statistical records of the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It is important to note that this waste is a mix of household garbage and commercial waste.

The process of recycling aluminium cans

  1. 1. [BRAND LOGO] [BRAND LOGO] The Process of Recycling Aluminium Cans RAW METAL CORP Address: 1156 Boundary Road, Wacol QLD 4076 AUSTRALIA Phone: 1300 729 638
  2. 2. [BRAND LOGO] [BRAND LOGO] Included in this mix of waste are aluminium cans, which, fortunately enough, are versatile. The Australian Aluminium Council says that aluminium is 100% recyclable and experiences no loss of properties or quality during the recycling process. Recycling aluminium cans is one way to reduce the Australia’s growing annual waste volume. The following is a closer look at the processes that aluminium cans undergo in order to be reused: Cleaning and Treating Cans collected from rubbish bins and scrap metal centres are brought to the treatment plant where they will be cleaned and sorted according to size. They are then pressed into huge blocks. Chopping and Segregating The blocks of pressed cans will be then shredded into smaller pieces. This makes it easier to remove the labels and coatings from the cans. The shredded pieces will be segregated again using a specially designed magnet, which separates steel components from the aluminium. The Queensland Government’s Department of Environment and Heritage Protection says that every Australian contributes around two tonnes of waste each year. This is based on the statistical records of the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It is important to note that this waste is a mix of household garbage and commercial waste.
  3. 3. [BRAND LOGO] [BRAND LOGO] Melting and Re-Using After the segregation, the shredded aluminium will be heated. At this phase, some substances may be added to refine the aluminium and make shaping easier. The molten aluminium will then be placed into large moulds. It will cool down by placing water around the moulds and using fans. The large blocks of aluminium called ingots will be delivered to buyers. These ingots are usually flattened using mills for reuse later on as wrappers or cans. The recycling process of aluminium cans is fairly simple and straightforward. The top benefit from this activity is that it eliminates the need for mining and processing raw materials, which usually costs a lot and causes more damage to the environment.
