“Aluminium, the metal of the future”

The rise of green metals has been of increasing interest for the industry in the last few years, with growth opportunities but also disagreement from various authorities on the sourcing of such metals raising the question of whether green is a fair label. But over the past decade, we have witnessed a standard shift in global awareness with the world economy slowly moving towards a cleaner, greener and more sustainable lifestyle. As the growing world population constantly demands improvement of the support structures sustaining its lifeblood, the predicted future is increasingly turning out to be a story of energy efficient, durable, low maintenance, environmentally-safe and sustainable structures and mechanisms that are flexible in their utilities and offer more for less. If there is anything that fits perfectly into this performance with sustainability equation, it is aluminium, the green metal. By virtue of its excellent properties like high strength-to-weight ratio, high corrosion resistance, highest formability, excellent ductility and conductivity, and infinite recyclability, of the metal, incorporated with the fact that aluminium ore mining is sustainable and eco-friendly, aluminium, the green metal is undoubtedly, the ‘Metal of the Future’ for a more sustainable world.
