A study co-authored by the Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling, Metal Processing Institute, and the Worcester Polytechnic Institute reported some interesting data: “The total recycling rate for auto aluminum is 91%. These surveys covered 5% of the US’ dismantling industry considering the amount of end-of-life (ELVs) vehicles entering the survey responder’s lots, 32% of the downstream separation industry based on volumetric throughput and 60-70% of the secondary aluminum processing sector based on market share statements. The measured average material collection percentage for ELVs that go through a dismantling outfit and a downstream separation system is 99.7%. The major hindrance for the auto aluminum recycling percentage stems from the recovery processes. The product when in the form of aluminum oxide is brought to a landfill from these processes. When a heavier gauge scrap category is charged, referred to for our purposes as a heavy recovery process, the metal yield of 95% is typical. Light gauge scrap melting is believed to generate in a metal yield of 91%, and the method is termed as a light recovery process in the report. Most of auto aluminum is light gauge, mixed, or shredded scrap. It’s been stated that 86% of obsolete auto-aluminum is charged in this form.
Analyzing the sensitivity to determine a minimum & maximum auto aluminum recycling percentage (RR%) for the US. This RR% range is 80% – 98%. The measured average of 91% falls between there and is believed to be much more indicative of the overall industry versus these extremes. This report provides a basis of the variability of the secondary aluminum production sector specifically relative to auto aluminum gathering and recovery.
The demand for aluminum in the North American auto sector is supposed to grow through 2025. Ducker Worldwide reports a 39% spike of aluminum weight per North American light vehicle over the next 10 years. The big driver for the rise is the added content in body sheet & closures with continued content expansion in casting & extruded auto-components. The rise in aluminum is somewhat driven by the advantage of vehicle light-weighting to attain the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) standards. Aluminum, being a lighter-weight product compared to conventional materials, delivers similar strength. Lighter materials allow for overall lighter delivered vehicles with similar safety performance while boosting fuel economy. The amplified use of aluminum in auto also helps advance car fuel efficiency while reducing overall energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions from a vehicle lifecycle point of view, as indicated in several life cycle studies.” The full story is available here: http://drivealuminum.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Final-Report-Automotive-Aluminum-Recycling-at-End-of-Life-A-Grave-to-Gate-Analysis.pdf
