Définition de 2C3 Aluminium Production Catégorie de sources
Aluminium Production covers primary production of aluminium, except the emissions related to the use of fuel. Carbon dioxide emissions result from the electrochemical reduction reaction of alumina with a carbon-based anode. Tetrafluoromethane (CF4) and hexafluoroethane (C2F6) are also produced intermittently. No greenhouse gases are produced in recycling of aluminium other than from the fuels uses for metal remelting. Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) emissions are not associated with primary aluminium production; however, casting of some high magnesium containing alloys does result in SF6 emissions and these emissions are accounted for in Section 2C4, Magnesium Production.
